Warming Up*

Let‘s get prepared for a week of curation technologies and check out the Qurator project in a series of short videos. The Warming UpSession will give you an idea of the project scope and provide you with further information regarding the conference program and the technologies developed by the consortium. The videos will be available for all registered users before the start of the conference. 

Tuesday, February 9th

10:00 - 12:00 
Opening Session

Artificial Intelligence: Fantastic Futures or Digital Dependence? In the opening session we will discuss why curation technologies play a major role in finding the right answer. Given the importance of curation technologies the Qurator partners aim for a strategy of strengths and synergetic activities. Stay tuned and meet our experts and international guests. Program

15:00 - 17:00
Round Table GAIA-X

Hyperscalers like AWS, Google or Microsoft have become market leaders in the field of cloud computing providing powerful ready made AI solutions. If Europe wants to strive for a leading role in the field of artificial intelligence it needs to develop its own solutions. Furthermore a lot of organzations that want to innovate with AI resp. curation technologies are sceptical to move into the cloud. The answer is GAIA-X a federated European cloud infrastructure (main language: German). Program

Wednesday, February 10th

10:00 - 16:00
Workshop Media - social, smart, trustful 

In the Media/TV workshop we will discuss innovative AI technology to improve Social Media Monitoring, Analysis and Verification of text, sound and videos, as well as new solutions for Advanced Newsboards and Robot Journalism. In order to fight the ongoing lock down, we have chosen a format with shorter presentations and several panels, where the contributions of the invited leading European stakeholders should incent vivid discussions between all participants (German only). Program

Wednesday, February 10th - Workshop Industry

16:00 - 18:00 
Workshop Industry

Artificial intelligence methods have now left the purely scientific realm and are increasingly arriving in practical applications. Nevertheless, the term Artificial Intelligence hides various technologies, mainly machine learning technologies (statistical or sub-symbolic methods) and semantic technologies (descriptive or symbolic methods). These two threads of research have evolved in the past starting from different origins. Currently, we see that these are now meeting and complementing each other. This development will be demonstrated in this workshop in the context of concrete applications (German only). Program

Workshop Health - Digital solutions for better health outcomes

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered an unprecedented acceleration of digital health solutions, with large leaps made globally to overcome constraints of our current health systems. Join us on for a multi-disciplinary workshop with keynotes followed by a panel discussion on what we can apply going forward to leverage the best of digital health to enhance healthcare for all. Program

Workshop Culture and Digital Transformation

Museums, exibitions or visitor centers are closley tied to the idea of exploring and seeing things in a physical space. These days the corona pandemic prevents us from visiting such places. Digital innovations can provide sustainable solutions leading the way to digitally transformed cultural institions. The workshop will discuss the idea of a unified user experience in which curated content is available over a wide range of communication channels - from web to interactive installations (German only). Program

09:45 - 16:15
Scientific Workshop - Part 1

The Scientific Workshop provides an open forum for short presentations and discussions on a specific topic relevant to the use of digital curation technologies in application domains for, e.g., media, journalism, logistics, cultural heritage, health care and life sciences, energy or industry. Of particular relevance are papers that demonstrate the applied use of digital curation technologies and tools in domain-specific use cases and that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Web, data analytics and machine learning, information/content and knowledge management systems, information retrieval, knowledge discovery and computational linguistics. Program

Friday, February 12th

09:45 - 15:30
