What is the Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence?
Twice a year we select a group of outstanding international postdoctoral researchers to visit the German hotspots in artificial intelligence. During the visits our fellows will get a general overview of the German AI research landscape and learn about the current funding and career opportunities in specific research areas in German academia and industry. Our main goal is to connect you to researchers and other fellows to set the base for new collaborations, extend your personal network and to explore new career opportunities.
In these challenging times, where the Covid-19 pandemic impacts both our private and professional lives we are convinced that it has become even more important to connect researchers worldwide, to initiate new collaborations and to offer attractiv career perspectives. Therefore, we decided to modify our offer:
- by adding a strong virtual component
- by making the on-site visits so flexible that scholars can adjust their plans to the COVID-19 situation.
The Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence, April 2021
During the upcoming Postdoc-NeT-AI in November we will visit AI research hotspots in mainly in the fields of data science, databank systems, and data mining and retrieval throughout Germany. The participating institutions will cover a broad field of research and give you an overview of the the manifold possibilities of the German AI research landscape. Our hosts will span various actors from the different fields like the Berlin Big Data Center, the Competence Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence or the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS covering research areas from cognitive perception, ML for Data Management and semantic retrieval. As participant you will not only get to know the work of the research teams through virtual visits but meet many of our researchers for1-to-1 meetings and share your work.
