#KI50 Newcomer 2019 & AI Camp

Your chance to vote for nominees from the Helmholtz AI network and to attend the AI Camp in December 2019




With the project '#KI50: Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Germany - yesterday, today, tomorrow', the German Society for Computer Science seeks for AI Newcomers and has started a vote: ten outstanding young researchers from a total of five categories will be honoured.  

We are pleased that the following young scientists from the Helmholtz AI network have been nominated:

  • Mark Rußwurm (DLR) is writing a doctoral thesis on the subject of 'Time series analyses of satellite data with methods of machine learning'. Please vote here.
  • Hannah Spitzer (HMGU) develops DL methods for mapping cortical areas in histological sections of the human brain. Please vote here.
  • Xiangyu Zhuo (DLR) develops novel methods for automatically annotate data for autonomous driving. Please vote here.

Use your votes: in each category you can vote for one female and one male contender.

In this context, we would like to draw the attention of all AI scientists under the age of 30 to the AI Camp. It will take place on 5 December 2019 in Berlin and  offers young researchers the opportunity to network across disciplinary boundaries and discuss current challenges facing Germany as an AI research location with experts from business, science and politics. Exciting workshops, fishbowl discussions and lectures with renowned AI experts from all disciplines await you. The ten AI Newcomers are honoured in the evening ceremony.
