CKI Conference 2018: Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence


- On February 26, 2018, the third annual CKI Conference at the TUM on " Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence" took place. The Center of Knowledge Interchange (CKI) is a joint institution of TUM and Siemens AG. It serves the purpose of promoting and deepening cooperation between both partners in the areas of technology transfer and talent development and is managed by TUM International GmbH.

More than 130 participants from both TUM and Siemens AG took the opportunity to connect and network and also to
share trends, collaborations and talk about the impact of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Research at the TUM Vorhoelzer Forum.

After welcoming addresses were given by TUM President Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Herrmann and Siemens Management Board member Dr. Roland Busch, the hosting CKI Manager at TUM, Dr. Stefan März, provided an overview of the strategic cooperation of the two long-standing partner institutions. Joined by his co-hosts Fabian Rhein from Siemens CT and Catharina Vos, the CKI Manager explained in which areas Siemens and TUM work together, presented President Herrmann and Dr. Busch with AI-generated gifts and led the audience through the agenda.

The keynote speech of the day was given by Dr. Michael May from Siemens, the Head of Technology Field and Company Core Technology Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence. These inspiring insights into Siemens research were followed by a tandem-talk on Trends in Machine Learning. Prof. Dr. Stephan Günnemann from the TUM Department of Informatics (Professorship of Data Mining and Analytics) and Dr. Ulli Waltinger (Research Group Head of Machine Intelligence, Siemens) talked passionately about trends and future challenges in Machine Learning.

A second tandem talk focused on Semantics & Knowledge Graphs. Dr. Markus Rickert (Research Group Head of Robotics and Autonomous Driving, fortiss GmbH) and Dr. Steffen Lamparter (Research Group Head of Semantic and Reasoning, Siemens) were able to provide to the audience a valuable overview on the current state of the art of the field.

Further talks on the Siemens Intrapreneurs Bootcamp AI, on the Siemens MindSphere Application Center in Munich-Allach, the data-driven cooperation between Siemens, TUM and the FC Bayern Munich as well as the announcement of the Siemens TAPAS Community Challenge completed the 2018 CKI Conference’s agenda.
