Welcome to Kiez of Computing and Data Science, a platform for interconnectivity in all areas of data science and computation within the metropolitan region of Hamburg, Germany. Our mission is to connect academic institutions as well as public/private partnerships and share expertise and knowledge, resources and tools, and many more within the exciting area of data science.
The need for critical know-how in technical, legal, and ethical aspects of data science is evolving daily in the fast-paced and dynamic areas of science and computation that work with vast quantities of data.
Kiez of Computing and Data Science provides an interdisciplinary forum with expertise and contacts in all aspects of data science to build a connected knowledge base in data research and management which will foster new understanding of complex systems. It implements part of the Data Science & Digitalization topic of PIERPLUS.
Data science topics range from machine learning, artificial intelligence, distributed infrastructure, exascale computing, research data management and research software engineering.
Hamburg, globally renowned as an important European logistics and research hub with an excellence University and premier research institutions offers both, the competencies as well as the network, to tackle Big Data challenges together.
The two-day event "Digital Total" is organized and conducted by the House of Computing & Data Science (HCDS) of the Universität Hamburg, in collaboration with partners from the scientific platform PIER PLUS and the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg.
Day 1 - Computing & Data Science in the Metropolitan Region
The goal of the first day, which is co-organized by CDCS, is to showcase and consolidate the topics of Data Science / AI / Computation, which are strongly represented in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. A key focus will be the discussion on a common PIER PLUS initiative called "PIER Computing and Data Science." Additionally, the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg will host an interdisciplinary forum for exchanging ideas about the future of digital transformation in the metropolitan region and potential synergies among cross-institutional initiatives. The first day will be concluded with a social event in the evening.
Day 2 - Computing & Data Science at the Universität Hamburg
The second day will focus on Data Science / AI / Computation at the Universität Hamburg. It will also serve as the kickoff for introducing the Cross-Disciplinary Labs (CDLs) located within HCDS.
Alongside the presentations in Audimax 1 & 2, the foyer will feature posters showcasing various projects throughout the event, presented during two poster sessions on Day 1 and 2.
