The current process of digitization undertaken in all parts of society, business and technology is transforming industry in all its facets and processes. Data, smart services, Internet of Things, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence are changing the way humans and companies work together. There is a strong reshaping of Industry going on.
In this strongly dynamic context, the current data revolution and increasing automation of cognitive tasks are raising challenging issues related to:
In order to build a trustful intelligent open infrastructure to support this industry of the future, it is important to enhance the set of methods and to increase research in the domain of Artificial Intelligence on the one hand, and to foster education, development and cross-fertilization efforts with the actors of Industry 4.0 on the other hand.
Artificial Intelligence technologies pertaining to Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Autonomous Agents and Decentralized Artificial Intelligence, Responsible Artificial Intelligence are interesting candidates to tackle the challenging issues of Industry 4.0.
In that direction, it is of first importance to share experiences and expertise between academia and industrial partners from France, Germany as well as other European countries with regard to Industry of the Future and AI.
This Summer School aims at investigating how Artificial Intelligence technologies can tackle the challenging issues of the industry of the future with respect to interoperability, data processing and autonomy, thus contributing to a trustful and responsible intelligent infrastructure. The key objective is to prototype and review solution approaches to actual problems.
The goal is to gather young talents and train them on common theoretical and practical basis by experts from industry and academia, inspired by the visions and the experience of keynote speakers. Participants will also work towards executable proof-of-concept solutions addressing requirements stemming from the industry and building on cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Agents, Linked Data and Big Data Technology. The main topics of the Summer school will be on the Web of Things, Knowledge Graphs, Decentralised AI, and Responsible AI.
Participants will benefit from a motivating environment where:
The Summer School will be organised along 4 main topics, each having balanced time dedicated to lecturing and practicing. In addition, students will have several working sessions in groups to draft plausible solutions to the challenges, create prototypes and test their approach as fast and as efficiently as possible.
The main topics of the sessions will enable to cover how Industry 4.0 problems can benefit of:
|Intelligent Systems & Informatics||Connected Intelligence team of Laboratoire Hubert Curien|
|Chair of Technical Information Systems||Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services SCS|
A full program with high quality keynotes and lectures provided by experienced lecturers in the different domains covered by the summer school.
This is the list of confirmed speakers.
All lectures consist in theoretical and practical sessions covering hands-on exercises on various kinds so that you will be able to participate to the coding challenges and be ready to continue coding and integrating semantic web technologies, multi-agent systems, web of things.
Participants will work in teams on a week-long coding challenge integrating technologies encompassing all topics presented at the summer school. The challenge will make use of sensors and actuators deployed in a replica of an industrial facility. Instructions to the participants will be given before the event to prepare for the challenge.
Each day is dedicated to one of the 4 topics of the summer school and consists of a keynote speech, lectures and practical work, then application of theory to the coding challenge. At the end, each team will present the outcome of their work. Social events are planned to encourage networking and team building. The detailed programme will be revealed as we get confirmation of the speakers' availability.
If you are a company who would like to support this summer school and have a chance to advertise and get in touch with young talents and academic researchers, you may want to discuss our sponsoring options by contacting us.
We will limit the number of participants to 30 people. Therefore, in case we receive too many applications, we will select attendees based on their résumés and cover letter. Both files must be compiled into a single document that you will submit using the registration form on EasyChair.
Lyon Saint Exupéry airport From the airport, you should take Rhône Express (usually every 20 min) till Lyon Part Dieu train station. Then cf. "By train"
From Lyon train station (Part-Dieu or Perrache) you can catch a train to Saint-Étienne Châteaucreux (TER, every 30', duration 40'). There are frequent trams (Tram 2 or 3) to station "Jean Moulin" + Bus (bus M6) to station "Centre de congrès" (Bus Schedules)
