Data describe sections of reality. We draw information from it. New knowledge is created. Data pave the way to a post-digital society. The benefits increase with availability and quantity. We are still stumbling over problems such as data quality, data protection and data security. But there are solutions for these. However, we pay surprisingly little attention to another type of problem: fundamental errors in thinking about data. Ignoring or denying them would be negligent and have unpleasant consequences.

11.00 - 12.30: Data for citizens/citizen participation

Chair: Nadja Riedel, City of Leipzig/Digital City Department, Stadt Leipzig/Referat DIgital Stadt

No one has more information about the city than the city itself. The city can use this knowledge to improve services and planning or to make decisions more comprehensible. But the city can also share its data with others or incorporate data from others to support urban development processes. This includes, for example, user-generated data from participation projects with citizens, e.g., on city or neighborhood design. However, data sharing also raises questions about the extent of transparency, data ownership and data protection on the digital agenda of cities. In the session, we will examine the opportunities and risks of data use together.

Ratsplenarsaal

11.00 - 12.30: Data for the city of the next generations

Chair: Julia Friedrich, Researcher, Institute for Applied Informatics

Social data literacy should not be left to chance. Data literacy should therefore not only be a skill of future generations, but must already become a basic building block for the education of people of different ages. In this session, representatives from science, industry and administration will present innovative projects that are currently being implemented in and around Leipzig on data literacy. An outlook on new educational institutions, digital training tools and platforms will also be given.

11.00 - 11.30: Recommendation System in Industrial Context

Manish Bhandari, Data Scientist Xitaso GmbH

In recent years, there has been a rapid advancement in the field of machine learning, especially deep learning. These advancements have resulted in the emergence of technologies where artificial intelligence assists human activities and sometimes even performs rudimentary and repetitive human tasks. Most of these developments are concentrated in day-to-day human activities. Be it the use of recommendation systems to assist humans’ in picking the right movies or recommending items they might like or translating speech and texts from one language to another. Nevertheless, these advancements can also potentially extend to an industrial context such as the production industry or construction industry. These industries mainly rely on the experience of domain experts to make complex decisions in various situations by analysing decisive parameters. In such cases, artificial intelligence can assist domain experts in making decisions by readily providing data-driven recommendations. These recommendations can then be reviewed by domain experts to make the final decision. In this talk, I would like to present such a use case where a custom-developed recommendation system using language models and vector databases assists domain experts in the construction industry in decision making.

Jens Scholz, CEO prudys AG

From the warehouse to the customer, smart algorithms are changing retail, because retail – like other industries – is facing major challenges. Customers expect permanent availability of services and goods – online and in stores – and at the same time an individually-tailored shopping experience. In addition, retail is under permanent margin pressure and is confronted with extensive digitization of its own processes for competitive reasons. Artificial intelligence plays out its potential in all these fields. The presentation aims to give an overview of the state of the application and shed light on some best practice examples. *German talk
