The course starts with kick-off lectures that introduce several research themes applying AI. The lectures will be given by AI experts from different fields. During the workshop day, the students will map real data-intensive problems from their own field of science and process them in groups. The final ideas will be presented in the poster session.

Questions: What kind of phenomena produces digital data in your own research field? Do you already possess data from some interesting phenomena in your research field?

In the group: What kind of similarities can be identified within the ideas given by students?

Discussion about: role of AI, automatic decision making, automatic analysis, prediction, situation awareness
