    The Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr (ML2R) has launched its new blog: In the categories Application, Research and Foundations, researchers of the Competence Center and renowned guest authors provide exciting insights into scientific results, interdisciplinary projects and industry-related findings surrounding Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The Competence Center ML2R brings forward-looking technologies and research results to companies and society.

    Machine Learning is the key to innovative AI technologies. They optimize the transport of goods, improve medical diagnostics, automate manufacturing processes or allow for a better view of the universe through the machine-supported analysis of astrophysical data sets. In international market competition, the effective use of Machine Learning methods is an essential factor for corporate success. As a leading research institution for cutting-edge ML research, the ML2R significantly advances these forward-looking technologies and thus makes an important contribution to Germany’s economic and scientific standing.

    In the new ML2R-Blog, which is launched today, researchers of the Competence Center as well as guest authors of its far-reaching network share their knowledge and expertise on Machine Learning methods. They hereby bridge the gap between research, industry and society.

    Seven articles already await readers: a four-part series on ML-Basics as well as one article each within the sections Application, Research and Foundations. The authors illustrate why AI must be explainable, how obscured satellite images can be recovered using Machine Learning and show methods for the automated assignment of keywords for short texts.

    Lights out, spot on: ML2R-Blog provides access to expertise from application-oriented research

    "In our many discussions with companies, we experience that the transfer of the latest AI research results into corporate application is too often still considered too big of a leap. We want to inform practitioners with concrete AI examples and encourage them to integrate new technologies into companies. The ML2R thus promotes and accompanies German companies in their AI development," says Dr. Stefan Rüping, Head of Transfer at the ML2R.

    Within the ML2R-Blog, authors publish weekly, predominantly German-language articles in one of three categories. Articles in the Application category are dedicated to knowledge transfer. They combine leading research with practice and show companies the application potential of Machine Learning methods based on concrete projects in business and society. In the section Research, scientists address current research trends and report on their scientific work on Machine Learning. Building and promoting ML knowledge: Blog posts in the Foundations category explain basic terms and concepts of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and hence advance the systematic building of knowledge as well as the simplified access of companies to leading expertise from research. Along the individual Blog posts, readers can get in touch with the authors.

    Search / advanced search of the idw archives
    Combination of search terms

    You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


    You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


    Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

    Selection criteria

    You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

    If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
