Save the Date! July 6 - 10, 2020 


We are happy to announce that the German  Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig) will host the sixth international summer school on AI and Big Data. The event aims 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 program, we offer inspiring insights into the area by selected research keynotes from international experts combined with industrial talks. 
There will be plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas and to discuss the topics with other participants and speakers. Be invited to our vibrant city of Leipzig. We also first class social activities such as a boat tour through Leipzig, a city walk and a dinner in a traditional restaurant. Within those social events participants have time to connect and partner with other international researchers.
