ScaDS Summer School 2018: Review

01.06.2018 // SCADS

From 30.06. to 06.07.2018, BBDC Berlin and the Big Data Competence Center ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig invited to the 4th international Summer School for Big Data and Machine Learning with Hackathon – the ScaDS Summer School 2018. Leipzig University offered a wide-ranging program that gave the more than 80 participants from industry and research insights into new findings and challenges in dealing with very large amounts of data and machine learning and enabled a lively exchange.

As in 2017, there were exciting and current lectures and discussions on the individual topics. The overriding topics were Big Data and machine learning. We would like to thank all speakers and participants once again for their participation in a successful event. The Speakers‘ affiliation included well-known companies (e.g. Microsoft, neo4j, Zalando) as well as various universities (University of Munich, Politecnico di Milano, FZ Jülich and many more). All reported on problems, current research points and solutions. Furthermore, there was a colorful accompanying program:

  • dragon boat trips
  • Leipzig city tours
  • promotion of the common exchange

All in all, we look back at a highly successful and enriching event. We can’t wait to welcome all of you to the next one! Keep yourself updated on upcoming events on our Summer School page.
