Applied Machine Learning

The Applied Machine Learning group aims to develop and apply novel Machine Learning methods for real-world applications. Emerging digitalization allows companies from different fields of industry to produce and collect data from various resources. This is realized by technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), cyber-physical systems and cloud-computing. All of which is summarized by the fourth industrial revolution, called Industry 4.0, with an increasing demand on research in the area of data analytics. Since these ever-growing amounts of data are difficult to process by conventional methods, machine learning and artificial intelligence provide a powerful and promising approach to handle Big Data. Thus, topics like predictive maintenance, process optimization and process automation benefit from new intelligent algorithms that are developed in the Industry 4.0 environment.
