3rd Symposium under the topic “Machine Learning & Data Mining in Science”

The 3rd Symposium of the ZHM Graduate School for Materials Science took place from 29 to 30 November 2018. As in the previous year, there was again a colorful program for the participants with the aim of exchanging information and networking. The poster session and lab visits at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and at the Hamburg University of Technology provided an opportunity for this. New this year was the topic of the symposium: Machine Learning and Data Mining in Science. Therefore, Prof. Alexander Hartmaier (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) was invited. He showed the participants in a hands-on session how he uses machine learning methods to homogenize mechanical properties from micro- to macroscale. In a workshop offered by Prof. Norbert Huber (HZG) the participants learned the use of artificial neural networks. The event was rounded off on Friday afternoon with the alumni presentations and a subsequent plenary discussion. This year's report by a post-doctoral researcher on her academic career contrasted with the career starts in industry. In the end, the Best Poster Award was presented, which this year went to Frederic Bock, a doctoral candidate at HZG.
