The TriRhenaTech alliance presents the accepted papers of the 'Upper-Rhine Artificial Intelligence Symposium' held on October 27th 2021 in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Topics of the conference are applications of Artificial Intellgence in life sciences, intelligent systems, industry 4.0, mobility and others. The TriRhenaTech alliance is a network of universities in the Upper-Rhine Trinational Metropolitan Region comprising of the German universities of applied sciences in Furtwangen, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe, Offenburg and Trier, the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Loerrach, the French university network Alsace Tech (comprised of 14 'grandes \'ecoles' in the fields of engineering, architecture and management) and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. The alliance's common goal is to reinforce the transfer of knowledge, research, and technology, as well as the cross-border mobility of students.
And he pretty much delivered. He turned out the Model S sedan and the Model X sport utility vehicle. And while 80,000 to 100,000 is hardly affordable to most, they're selling better than almost anyone expected. On the power front, his Gigafactory outside Reno is turning out battery storage units and soon will be producing battery cells for cars. With Steve Jobs gone, Musk has emerged as perhaps the world's most celebrated tech visionary. His success thus far at Tesla, and at SpaceX, where he's winning NASA contracts away from traditional aerospace companies to rocket cargo into space, makes Part Deux more than some "wouldn't it be cool" fantasy dreamed up in a smoke-filled dorm room. Musk proposes a fascinating, if sketchily drawn, vision. He'll be taken more seriously when he backs it up with clearer numbers, solid plans and timelines, and, eventually, execution. And nothing will add more than to his credibility than a successful launch of the Model 3.
