From August 17th to 23rd 2019 the Germany based Big Data Competence Center ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig is organizing the fifth international summer school on Big Data and Machine Learning. We continue our previous efforts to establish this summer school series  (20162017, 2018) and broaden the topic spectrum covering state-of-the-art techniques in Big Data processing and analytics as well as novel methods in machine learning and artificial intelligence. The event aims at graduate students, Ph.D. students, researchers as well as well as practitioners starting or being active in the field of Big Data and machine learning. Within the program, we offer inspiring insights into the area by selected research keynotes from international experts combined with industrial talks.  Prior to the summer school, there will be a hackathon for hands-on development of an application in the machine learning earea .  Furthermore, there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas and to discuss the topics with other participants and speakers.
