Talk on Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics at WissDok

WissDok is an annual event for scientific and media documentation of public media organizations. The event focuses on the pragmatic-current edge of technical, organizational and scientific development in the documentation in its role as an incarnation of information science. The invited speakers deliver an annual update on the current development of various dimensions in this professional field in approximately 2-hour sessions. The event is part of the wissDok program and an offer to the specialist with opportunity for discussion.

At wissDok our team, represented by Lukas Kaupp, will give a talk about Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics. The talk will cover three main aspects: (1) Overview on Artificial Intelligence, (2) Machine Learning and (3) Data Analytics. All parts are covered by an introduction to the foundations, current state-of-the-art approaches and upcoming research trends.

Information Science: The new degree program at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences

Digitization contributes to the accumulation of knowledge in immense amounts of data, but often unstructured and widely scattered. Information Scientists bring this knowledge together and make it usable for business and society. The new study program Information Science at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da) trains students to become experts in the professional handling of data, information and knowledge. The bachelor and master program starts for the first time in the winter semester 2019/20 and replaces the previous course Information Science. Applications are possible from the 15th of May.

“Since digitization processes and rapid technological changes have a major impact on companies, information scientists also contribute to future and innovation processes,” emphasizes Prof. Dr. Kawa Nazemi. He is in charge of the bachelor’s and master’s degree program Information Science. His graduates also qualify for leadership positions in companies, institutions, media organizations, administrations or libraries as well as for research activities. The master’s degree also qualifies for a doctorate. There are perspectives at the Hochschule Darmstadt in the cross-university doctoral program “Applied Computer Science”, in which research group is involved.
