From November 22nd to 24th 2021 the German Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig) hosted the 7th International Autumn School on AI and Big Data. Due to the ongoing COVID situation, we continued our previous summer school program also this year as an online event. The school aimed at graduate students, Ph.D. students, researchers as well as practitioners starting or being active in the areas of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and/or Big Data. Within the online program, we offered inspiring insights into various research areas by internationally recognized and well known keynote speakers. Beside some highlights from our center, we also had presentations by colleagues from the network of German AI competence centers.
Thematically, we did not only focus on methods from AI and Big Data from the computer science perspective, but also offered an alternative from the legal and social point of view on the influence of AI and Big Data methods not just on science, but also on social processes.
A autumn school provided opportunities to exchange ideas and to discuss the topics with other participants and speakers. Within our program we offered plenty of time to get in contact with the speakers and allow you to ask questions. Moreover we organized an online science get-together. The idea was to bring in social aspects in an online setting. This way, participants were able to get to know partners, other international practitioners and researchers.
