What is the Data Week in Leipzig?
Following on from the successful conference week in 2022, the networking platform that has been created will now be expanded and developed through cooperation. The content will highlight scientific, economic and social perspectives on data and artificial intelligence.
New partners in 2023 are the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Competence Centre Artificial Human Intelligent, which is organising the Working Conference on Artificial Intelligence Development for a Resilient and Sustainable Tomorrow. The new partners aim to highlight the importance of international data spaces for climate change mitigation strategies and actions.
Industry, citizens, science and public authorities enter into dialogue - this is the goal of Data Week Leipzig 2023. The networking and exchange platform already created last year is now to be consolidated in Leipzig. In addition to the focus on AI and data, there will also be a special focus on bringing together representatives from industry and science with city authorities.
Furthermore, international IT experts will present latest applications, for example digital city twins, in workshops and keynotes. The organisers would also like to invite students, trainees and interested citizens to take a look behind the scenes and thus create a forum for IT and data enthusiasts.
Impressions of the Data Week 2022
An exciting week of events for startups, students as well as representatives from science, administration and industry with more than 340 participants at the New City Hall Leipzig.
The week-long event at Leipzig's New Town Hall brought together stakeholders from business, science and administration over five days of events. What all participants from various disciplines had in common was an interest in topics of digitization, data and artificial intelligence. Commenting on this interdisciplinarity, Dr. Sebastian Tramp, CTO of eccenca GmbH, said, "With Data Week, we are broadening our scope from a purely academic event to one that can really interest everyone." The conference week was characterized by varied exchange and networking opportunities. Many presentations, workshops and discussion panels were organized. Furthermore, Data Week Leipzig opened on July 4, 2022 with the exciting keynote presentation "Of Errors in Data and Errors in Thinking" by Stefan Holtel (Curator for Digital Transformation at PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH).
