Fuzzy, blurry, wicked - these are the attributes of ourday's problems we have to solve. Tackle with such exercises means that we have to re-think our linear technical solution paths. Especially in AI and Semantics we have learned to spoon out our technological possibilities to the limit. leaving the comfort path of the usual allows to reap results which other may identify as magic.

In this MeetUp we want to talk about real magic and charlatanism in fields which are hyped to resolve the fuzzy, the blurry and the wicked.
