University of Würzburg Graduate Schools

    Graduate Schools' Day reanimated


    After two years of online surrogates, we are now back to celebrating our traditional Graduate Schools' Day in person, including the legendary boat-cruise on the river Main. All doctoral researchers, principal investigators, and alumini of our graduate schools are invited to join us on July 7th.

    Poste GS Day

    We are very happy to present Prof. Andreas Hotho as keynote speaker. He is the organizer of one of JMU’s arguably most important current interdisciplinary infrastructure and research developments (CAIDAS). His talk is of direct importance for the research fields represented at the all our graduate schools:

    Putting Data into Research: The Role of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
    Digitalization affects many areas of our life, and it drives the development of our society. Research is no exception: In every area, from the humanities to the sciences, more and more data are collected, stored, and analyzed. Professor Andreas Hotho, founding spokesperson of JMU's new Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (CAIDAS), will discuss how to deal with this growing amount of data in intelligent ways, leading to an exponentially growing research field of its own. He will also illustrate how such approaches may fundamentally change the way we ask and answer research questions in the future.
