KiSoft, KNAPP’s logistics software, guarantees optimal system integration. The software programme manages all processes from goods-in to goods-out, and makes warehouse applications like the digital assistant possible in the first place. During his keynote speech, Gerald Hofer will discuss the challenges posed by artificial intelligence for humans and infrastructure.
