    Artificial Intelligence in Production

    During the seminar, you will learn, which steps are necessary to implement AI in production using concrete use cases as examples. The individual steps are accompanied by practical exercises in which you as a participant preprocess data sets, train ML algorithms and evaluate the results of these models yourself using the Python programming language.

    With low latencies and high data rates, 5G offers enormous potential for production: processes can be continuously monitored and documented, and process flows can be designed adaptively in real time. Through the intelligent interaction of the 5G network with local edge cloud systems, end-to-end real-time applications can be implemented in a scalable manner - from the sensor to the cloud. In this seminar, we would like to talk about the possibilities and economic benefits of the technology in order to make an informed decision about whether 5G could also be worthwhile for your production.

    In this seminar, benefits of AutoML systems are presented and when AutoML systems can be applied in production. Based on introductions into the topic ML and AI, its tools and methodologies, ML models are implemented manually. Then, AutoML tools are benchmarked with the manual implementation and influencing factors on the performance of AutoML tools are discussed. Finally a tool for selecting the right AutoML tool will be presented.
