Program

The tentative program below will be gradually updated in the coming weeks and we will keep you up to date on this page.

Challenges for hands-on sessions - Throughout the summer school, we will develop cool IoT/AI projects, which apply the knowledge gained from the lectures and tutorials. Industry experts and academic researchers will pose project ideas in the following directions:


  1. IoT/Edge computing to handle AI processes (e.g., to detect faults in manufactured goods via video)
  2. Improve the control of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGV) for manufacturing plants
  3. Environmental monitoring and analyzing assessed sensor data
  4. Creating a game with IoT devices and AI support
