(DF)² Jahreskonferenz 2023 - „Die Triade Dienstleistung – Arbeit – KI gestalten“

SEW-EURODRIVE in Graben-Neudorf bei Karlsruhe

Die Digitalisierung und Automatisierung von Dienstleistungen hat in den letzten Jahren erheblich zugenommen, insbesondere durch den Einsatz von Künstlicher Intelligenz (KI), und wird durch Anwendungen wie ChatGPT, Bard oder Midjourney im Alltag immer präsenter. Unternehmen setzen KI-Technologien ein, um Kundenservice, Beratung, Personalisierung, Verfügbarkeit und andere Aspekte von Dienstleistungen zu verbessern und zu automatisieren. Gleichzeitig stellt sich die Frage nach neuen Anforderungen an die Gestaltung von Dienstleistungen und den Auswirkungen von KI auf die Zukunft des deutschen Dienstleistungssektors.

Auf der (DF)² Jahreskonferenz 2023 werden wir diskutieren, wie die Einbindung KI-basierter Systeme Dienstleistungen transformieren und optimieren kann, indem sie beispielsweise Qualität verbessern, Prozesse beschleunigen und personalisierte Erfahrungen für Nutzer ermöglichen. Dabei beleuchten wir ebenfalls die Herausforderungen, welche sich aus dem Einsatz von KI ergeben, wie etwa Fragen der Gestaltung KI-unterstützter Dienstleistungsarbeit sowie Fragestellungen zur Datensicherheit, Privatsphäre und Ethik bei der Verwendung von Algorithmen in Entscheidungsprozessen.

Informatik-Kolloquium, Thorsten Strufe, KIT

Konrad-Zuse-Hörsaal (B-201) + Zoom

Thorsten Strufe from the KIT in Karlsruhe will give a talk on privacy in the Metaverse.

Extended realities (XR), including Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), are emerging technologies with a wide range of potential applications, including networking, gaming, healthcare, and education. However, as with any new technology, AR/VR also introduces new security and privacy challenges. AR and VR devices collect a wide range of personal data about users, including their physical movements, eye movements, and voice recordings. This data can be used to track users' activities, identify them, or even infer private attributes like health conditions or private preferences. Furthermore, XR applications integrate multiple modalities, such as audio, video, and haptic data streams, enlarging security and privacy exposure. Yet, there are always claims of how "anonymization" and "pseudonymization" were helping to achieve "GDPR compliance". In this talk I will present results from three of our recent studies, and we will discuss how claimed protection has proven and is ineffective under scrutiny.

CV:
Thorsten Strufe is professor of IT Security at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT/KASTEL), and adjunct professor for Privacy and Network Security at TU Dresden. He is a deputy speaker of the Excellence Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI), and a PI in the national IT security competence center KASTEL Security Research Labs.
His research interests lie in the areas of privacy and network security, especially in the context of social networking services and novel mixed reality applications. Recently, he has focused on studying privacy implications of user behavior and possibilities to provide privacy-preserving and secure networked services.
Previous posts include faculty positions at TU Dresden, TU Darmstadt, and Uni Mannheim, as well as postdoc/researcher positions at EURECOM (France) and TU Ilmenau.

Informatik-Kolloquium: Interactive, feature-based 3-D visualization for rapid exploration of gridded atmospheric data

Konrad-Zuse-Hörsaal (B-201) + Zoom

Visualization is an important and ubiquitous tool in the daily work of atmospheric researchers and weather forecasters to analyse data from simulations and observations. In this talk, I will present recent and ongoing work we are conducting at the Universität Hamburg’s Visual Data Analysis Group with respect to interactive 3-D visualization and feature detection using gridded atmospheric data. This includes methods for detection and interactive visual analysis of 3-D atmospheric fronts, as well as interactive 3-D analysis of simulated clouds and other volumetric data. Our methods are integrated into “Met.3D”, our open-source research software that makes novel interactive, 3-D, feature-based, and ensemble visualization techniques accessible to the meteorological community (https://met3d.wavestoweather.de). Since its first public release in 2015, Met.3D has been advanced within the German research projects “Waves to Weather (W2W)” and “Climate, Climatic Change, and Society (CLICCS)” and has evolved into a feature-rich visual analysis tool facilitating rapid exploration of gridded atmospheric data.

Speaker: Dr. Marc Rautenhaus
Bio:
Marc Rautenhaus leads the Visual Data Analysis Group at the Regional Computing Centre of Universität Hamburg. His research interests lie at the intersection of visual computing and weather and climate research, focussing on interactive 3-D visualization, feature detection, weather forecasting, and research software development of the meteorological interactive 3-D ensemble visualization framework Met.3D. He holds a master’s degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of British Columbia, Canada, and a PhD in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich. Previous posts include researcher/postdoc positions at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the Technical University of Munich.

Niklas Dieckow - Data-driven methods for the Maxey-Riley equations

The Maxey-Riley equations (MRE) describe the motion of a small inertial particle suspended in a fluid flow. They are a system of implicit integro-differential equations with a singular kernel. Exact solution methods require the evaluation of an integral over the entire particle history in each time step, causing the computation time to grow quadratically in the number of steps. In this talk, data-driven methods such as SINDy (Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics) are discussed and employed to obtain approximations of the MRE that do not contain an integral term and are therefore easier to solve.

Emin Nakilcioglu - Parameter Efficient Fine Tuning for a Domain-Specific Automatic Speech Recognition

With the introduction of early pre-trained language models such as Google’s BERT and various early GPT models, we have seen an ever-increasing excitement and interest in foundation models. To leverage existing pre-trained foundation models and adapt them to specific tasks or domains, these models need to be fine-tuned using domain-specific data. However, fine-tuning can be quite resource-intensive and costly as millions of  parameters will be modified as part of training. PEFT is a technique designed to fine-tune models while minimizing the need for extensive resources and cost. It achieves this efficiency by freezing some of the layers of the pre-trained model and only fine-tuning the last few layers that are specific to the downstream task. With the help of PEFT, we can achieve a balance between retaining valuable knowledge from the pre-trained model and adapting it effectively to the downstream task with fewer parameters.

Alexander Itin - AI for engineering and science: selected use cases

Its going to be a little bit chaotic talk with many use cases.  My scientific background is dynamical systems and condensed matter physics.  I switched from academic to industrial research at some point, joining Bosch Research, and did many interesting projects there. I then gradually returned back to academy. I will briefly discuss applications of AI in engineering, and in a more detail in science: how they are different and what have in common.  Such use cases as virtual sensors, synthetic FIB/SEM data generation, anomaly detection in manufacturing, etc, will be briefly reviewed (engineering). I will consider in a little bit more detail inverse design of photonic structures using generative AI, predictive physics-informed models, acceleration of solvers using AI  (science).

Robert Kräuter - Development of a black-box soft sensor for a fluidization process

Solids water content is an important particle property in many applications of process engineering. Its importance on the quality of pharmaceutical formulations makes an in-line measurement of the water content especially desirable in fluidization processes. However, currently available measurement techniques are difficult to calibrate and scarcely applicable in real fluidized beds. A promising strategy for in-line monitoring of the water content is thus soft sensing, a method that expresses the targeted quantity as a correlation of other more reliable measurements. In this talk, we present the development of such a soft sensor using various black-box models. Our focus lies on strategies to reduce overfitting through feature engineering and hyperparameter tuning. These models are designed for processing real experimental data from a turbulent process, addressing challenges in data filtering, undersampling, outlier detection, and uncertainty propagation.

Maximilian Kiener

In this talk, I explore the role of ethics in the development of AI and advanced machine learning. I argue that ethics is deeply integrated into powerful AI systems so that one cannot easily remove it without serious impairment of other aspects of the system’s intelligence and problem-solving capacities. On this basis, I develop a novel and more radical framework for ethics by design.

Yahya Saleh - Flow-induced bases and application to quantum molecular physics

In analogy to the use of normalizing flows to augment the expressivity of base probability distributions, I propose to augment the expressivity of bases of Hilbert spaces via composition with normalizing flows. I show that the resulting sequences are also bases of the Hilbert space under sufficient and necessary conditions on the flow. This lays a foundation for a theory of spectral learning, a nonlinear extension of spectral methods for solving differential equations. As an application I solve the vibrational molecular Schrödinger equation. The proposed numerical scheme results in several orders of magnitude increased accuracy over the use of standard spectral methods.
