Research Seminar on Artificial Intelligence (AI)


The AI expert group from the Cluster of Excellence “Internet of Production” (IoP) and the AI Center are launching a biweekly research seminar. This series of events provides a space for Ph.D. researchers and postdocs to present their AI-related research to the IoP and AI community of RWTH.


The seminar has the objective of increasing the understanding of the AI research conducted within the IoP cluster in particular and at RWTH in general. Through this understanding, we want to allow participants to form an idea of the current challenges that have to be tackled as well as the state-of-the-art techniques in this field. By connecting researchers who work on AI methods with those who work on possible applications, the research efforts at RWTH can be bundled and strengthened.

Starting on the 29th of June, the AI seminar will be a roughly biweekly event, which takes place on Tuesdays at 4 pm. Each event consists of a 30-minute presentation regarding a research topic followed by a discussion of roughly 15 minutes. The presentations will have a strong focus on AI methods such as machine learning, symbolic AI, or process mining. All events already scheduled will be announced on this website.

The seminar is jointly hosted by the RWTH Cluster of Excellence “Internet of Production” (IoP) and the RWTH AI Center. The events are organized by the AI expert group of the IoP, which is led by the Knowledge-Based Systems Group (KBSG, Prof. Lakemeyer) and the Institute for Data Science in Mechanical Engineering (DSME, Prof. Trimpe).

To stay up to date with information regarding the AI seminar, you can subscribe to its mailing list by sending an e-mail with the subject "subscribe" to .

The seminar is mainly focused on researchers associated with the IoP and the AI Center, who actively participate in the talks. Other interested researchers are encouraged to contact us.
