Vienna – Over 2000 professionals from more than 50 countries came together at the WeAreDevelopers 2019 Congress in Vienna, Austria, last week to share the latest ideas in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud, Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Speakers from Mondi Group’s digital transformation team, Mondi DX, presented on opportunities and challenges for the packaging and paper industry with the onset of rapid digitalisation and AI integration.

Mondi Group Data Scientist Jillian Augustine gave a Main Stage talk about data-driven process optimisation at Mondi, describing how the packaging and paper group develops soft sensors for its paper machines.
