The Rise of AI – A Conference on Artificial Intelligence

My great interest in artificial intelligence led me to Berlin on the evening of 15 May – thanks to the new ICE line already within a few hours.  On the next day the conference “The Rise of AI” took place with more than 800 guests and 75 speakers from 21 different nations. I was very excited to see what would happen there.

175 participants, 10 intensive trainings and a theatrical journey through the 1000-year history of the city of Bamberg – all this has to be organized. The preparations for the 10th DOCUFY User Meeting from 04 to 06 June 2019 were already in full swing when I started as a working student at DOCUFY in April.

The Information Space – container or living room?

Stefan Kreckwitz, CEO of our partner Congree, describes in his guest blog article the tools that are best used to create an information space.

Solutions such as COSIMA and TopicPilot from DOCUFY are revolutionizing technical documentation. They lay the foundation for an Information Space that spans the entire product cycle. Information from development to marketing and sales, installation, operation, maintenance and finally disposal can be anchored in this space.

XML Prague 2019 – A Review

What comes to your mind first when you think of Prague? Karlsbridge? Karel Gott? Goulash and beer? First of all we think of the meeting of XML disciples at XML-Prague. There are three days of concentrated input in the form of lectures and Meetups: On the Pre-Conference Day (7 February), various meetings of companies and organisations took place. Among others our partner AntennaHouse was present: there were news about the status of PDF generation with CSS, as well as general insights into the further development of AntennaHouse, e.g. containerization and cloud solutions.

Heidelberg and DOCUFY: Why it fits!

Dr. Marco Müller has been involved in the strategic development of Heidelberg Platforms since 2013. Here he explains why Heidelberger Druchmaschinen AG and DOCUFY are a good match.

DOCUFY has been part of Heidelberg for more than a year. The entrepreneurial background is explained in the press release. Why I am personally convinced that the integration of DOCUFY into the Heidelberg Group is a good idea and “it just fits” is what I would like to briefly explain here.

First of all, the acquisition has caused a big question mark for many: for the new colleagues in Bamberg, for DOCUFY customers and also for some of my colleagues in Heidelberg.

Gaming technology or industry-ready? The true added value of augmented reality

People glance at their smartphones an average of 100 times a day. You can see this behavior both on your way home on the subway and to an increasing extent in the workplace. When performing a task in the real world, our attention alternates constantly between observing information that is necessary for performance – on tablets, smartphones and computer screens alike – and focusing on the actual task at hand. Why is it still like that? Why hasn’t the way we consume information changed in more than 15 years?

7 years – and not a bit of boredom

A partnership is often referred to as the bloody seventh year. After seven years one knows the quirks and virtues of the other, and knows how to appreciate one’s partner. For seven years now I have been working as a freelance press officer for DOCUFY. And even in the seventh year we are still happy together. Perhaps the formula for success for our cooperation is that we both like dynamism and progress – and not boredom. When I started working for DOCUFY, there was only the COSIMA and DOCUFY Machine Safety editorial system. This alone could have been boring in the long run.

XML Prague: 20 years of XML and CSS in detail

XML, short for Extensible Markup Language, – celebrates its birthday and DOCUFY celebrates, too! That’s right, because we’ve both been around for 20 years now. Our declared goal then as now: To optimize editorial processes based on XML as a pioneer. Reason enough for us to travel to Prague from 8 to 10 February for the meeting of XML friends. There we not only met well-known people from the XML universe (Michael Kay from Saxonica, Tony Graham from Antenna House, Norman Walsh – inventor of the DocBook format and many more), but also had the opportunity to discuss interesting application examples from various fields as well as ideas and approaches around XML.
