28th March 2019

Last Thursday, the final meeting of Smart Farming World project took place at project partner Grimme in Damme, Lower Saxony. In addition to the project partners, also representatives of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the DLR and the Accompanying Research Center VDI / VDE took part in this event. The focus was placed on the consideration of different use cases: Fleet Set Connect, Connected Update, Tele Expert and nPotato.

Information and Service Systems (ISS)

Chair in Business Administration, especially Information and Service Systems at Saarland University deals with the development and management of data-driven services, for instance healthcare. Directed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Maaß, the chair investigates how the application of experimental design methods combined with distributed, data analytic approaches lead to adaptive service designs and innovative solutions. This research is conducted in basic and applied research projects in cooperation with leading research and industry partners. Results are applied and validated in industry projects by the research group Smart Service Engineering (S2E) at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).

You can find us now in buliding A5.4, 2nd floor on the right.

European Data Science Summer School

ed3s_poster.jpg Every year, the chair ISS hosts the European Data Science Summer School (ED3S). The ED3S takes place in September and includes statistics, web data processing, machine learning & co. 2016 the third ED3S occured. Thanks to all speakers, national and international participants from different research areas. You can register from June 2017 on.
