Dr. Tiansi Dong is the lead organizer of a Dagstuhl seminar from September 5th to 10th. With participation from interdisciplinary experts from around the world, the seminar “Structure and Learning” aims to develop a roadmap that integratively brings together structure and learning in the fields of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
Lukas Heppe (ML2R) and Mirko Bunse (SFB 876) took second place in the Ariel Machine Learning Data Challenge at the ECML PKDD 2021 conference. The researchers developed a Deep Learning approach that allows for accurate predictions of the radii of extrasolar planets. ML2R scientists study the machine analysis and processing of large astrophysical data sets.
The German AI centers came together at a social event on Natural Language Processing at this year’s ICML conference. The event “Zeitgeist in NLP” on July 21 included a panel and audience discussion, presentations, topical tables, and opportunities for networking and exchange.
The new booklet “AI in SMEs: Recognizing potentials, laying foundations, mastering transformations” by the Plattform Lernende Systeme shows the potentials of Artificial Intelligence for SMEs on the basis of 17 detailed Use Cases. ML2R contributes to the brochure with a project on intelligent data summaries in rolling mills.
At the Digital Day 2021, ML2R and RapidMiner host a Hands-On Workshop on “Machine Learning: An Introduction to the Key Technology of Artificial Intelligence”. On 18 June from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CEST participants will gain exciting insights into the basics of Machine Learning and will execute a typical ML-workflow. Registration for the event is free of charge.
At a symposium on May 5, ML2R scientists discussed the latest scientific findings on Quantum Machine Learning together with experts from Fraunhofer ITWM and DLR. In the research area Machine Learning on quantum computers, ML2R researchers develop ML algorithms and solutions using state-of-the-art quantum processors.
The Network of National Centres of Excellence for AI Research has launched its virtual Pitch Talks. Researchers within the network hereby discussed current research on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Big Data. Katharina Morik coordinates the network, which unites six leading AI research institutions in Germany.
Katharina Morik is among the first 50 signatories of #SheTransformsIT. The initiative is dedicated to empowering women and girls in IT and aims to increase their participation in shaping the societal process of digitization. The ML2R promotes the next generation of female researchers and educates them to become leading ML experts.
The ML2R has launched its new blog. In the categories Application, Research and Foundations, researchers of the Competence Center and renowned guest authors provide exciting insights into scientific results, interdisciplinary projects and industry-related findings surrounding Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
Joint coding, programming and writing: The ML2R’s Science Year 2020 concluded with a center-wide Science Code Slam. The Competence Center’s team came together in groups virtually and worked on various tasks related to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. The ML2R looks back on an extraordinary and exciting year.
