CAIML #10 will happen on January 14, 2020, at grandcentrix ( with two talks on AI and machine learning:


18:30 - Doors open

19:00 - Welcome & Intro

19:15 - Timon Schmelzer (Data Scientist at, CERN vs. German Mittelstand – A Field Report from an IoT Solution Provider

As a former experimental particle physicist, I am used to dealing with large amounts of data. However, the everyday challenges for a data scientist at an end-to-end IoT solution provider are vastly different compared to those in academia. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, operates the largest experiment in the world, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In the LHC, particles are accelerated to almost the speed of light in counter-rotating beams and then brought to collision at a frequency of 40 MHz. ML algorithms, in combination with statistical and visual validation of the results, are an essential part of the separation between signal and background events. In the industry, especially in German SMEs, the challenges to gain insights from collected data often begin earlier and lie in a different dimension. This presentation compares these two scenarios and presents some of the lessons learned.

19:45 - Break with drinks and food

20:15 - Let's Discuss AI & ML

20:45 - Closing & Networking
