CODING.WATERKANT2023: From June 26-30, 2023, the Waterkant Festival, Kiel.AI, and the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Kiel (IPN), with the support of the State Chancellery of Schleswig-Holstein, will bring together machine learning and artificial intelligence enthusiasts to take their projects to the next level or exchange ideas with others working on their projects - all in the unique atmosphere of the Waterkant Festival! Attendees will have the opportunity to spend four days working on current machine learning projects, sharing ideas with other practitioners, participating in workshops, receiving input and feedback from invited experts, and presenting their work to a larger audience. If you need to take time off from work, you can apply for educational leave to attend the event. If you are not from Kiel and would like to attend the event, we also offer a limited number of overnight accommodations at the venue.
