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 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.
Researchers from the ML2R network are among the “Most Influential Scholars” in the annual ranking of the online e-magazine AI 2000. Using computer algorithms, the AMiner system generates rankings based on citation frequencies in the most important publications for more than 250,000 renowned scientists.
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.
Prof. Dr. Katharina Morik and Prof. Dr. Stefan Wrobel, speakers of ML2R, are contributing to this year’s conference of the “Plattform Lernende Systeme”, Germany’s platform for Artificial Intelligence. The conference on the topic “AI is now. Seizing opportunities – shaping development” will take place virtually on February 23, 2021, starting at 10 am.
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.
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.
This year’s edition of the Digital Summit addressed the central topic “More sustainability by means of digitization”. The competence center ML2R participated in the online event, which took place on November 30 and December 1, with contributions from spokespersons Prof. Dr. Katharina Morik and Prof. Dr. Stefan Wrobel.
