Data Science Day 2019

The audience at the Data Science Day 2019

This Data Science Day was the third in a series of events whose goal was to bring together those peope at Jena who are interested in the broad topic of data science. The two keynotes by Alexander May and Viktor Leis showed the breadth of data science topics. Alexander May of Ruhr-Universität Bochum gave an illustrative introduction to quantum computing. The audience appreciated that he did not concentrate too extensively on the physical aspects. Viktor Leis who was just appointed to the Chair of Database and Information Systems at FSU Jena used this opportunity not only to introduce himself and his scientific research interests, but also to share his experiences in transferring reasearch results into a commercial setting.
