AI and the Future of Ergonomics

Join us in Kaiserslautern for the RAMSIS User Conference 2024, where industry leaders, academics, and researchers will come together to explore the latest advancements in digital ergonomics. This year's theme, "AI and the Future of Ergonomics," will guide our discussions and discoveries as we delve into the transformative role of artificial intelligence in automotive design and innovation.

Our conference will cover various pressing topics, including AI-supported package development, as well as research and teaching with RAMSIS. A highlight of this year's event is our keynote speaker, Dr. Sebastian Wernicke, who will address the critical role of data in decision-making with his talk, "In Data, We Trust... Or Do We? Unraveling the Psychology of Data-Driven Decisions." Dr. Wernicke will shed light on data usage's complexities and psychological aspects, offering practical strategies to leverage data effectively.

We invite you to join us for an engaging and insightful journey through the evolving world of digital ergonomics. Let's shape the future together with AI-driven insights and innovations. We look forward to welcoming you in Kaiserslautern!
