Workshops and Conferences
This conference, hosted by the Centre for Human & Machine Intelligence (HMI) at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and part of the project group Regulatory Theories of Artificial Intelligence of the Centre for Responsible Digitality (ZEVEDI), aims to bring together researchers from ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of science to discuss questions surrounding the governance of data science. The conference’s guiding question is how to conduct, design and regulate data science for the public good. The proper guidance of data science requires the formulation of both moral and legal norms and frameworks, which may guide individuals, private corporations, as well as public and political institutions. The conference will approach this topic by looking at a range of different domains, exploring the specific challenges they raise and how they might call for different, custom-made solutions. These domains include, but are not limited to, healthcare, scientific research, transportation, surveillance, social media, and law and law enforcement. In these domains, good data science governance is a matter of understanding and balancing a variety of often competing values and ideals, among which are responsibility, trust, fairness, accountability, privacy, cost-efficiency, as well as epistemic goods such as knowledge, understanding and predictive power.
Data Science Talk Series
The Frankfurt School Data Science Talk Series is a communication and networking platform that enables students and faculty to interact with professionals from industries and academia, and exchange ideas on various topics related to data science and business.
Our Data Science Talk Series is also a learning platform benefiting anyone interested in data-science-related topics, including AI, Machine Learning, Cyber Security, Visualization, Deep Learning, and many other topics which are rapidly changing the business and academic landscapes.
Students from our Data Science BSc and MSc degree programmes are the target group for this seminar series. The goal is to help them better understand their role in business and center their attention on the topic that will lead them throughout their programme journey. The talk series is also a great medium to learn something new and even engender curiosity and a hidden passion that you have never realized before. Whether you are a data scientist or just someone curious about the continuous growth of data-driven applications all around us and their impact on finance, management, and other fields, please check our list of speakers below and register for any event you are interested in.
The booming field of Data Science is what connects us all in these talk series, so we are happy to welcome companies and professional individuals coming from the industries or academia to share their stories with us. For any inquiries, feel free to contact Zorica Zujic (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Digital computing is facing different fundamental physical limitations in terms of higher clock frequencies, energy requirements, and integration density (i.e., the number of components per area). However, many computational problems (e.g., training neural networks, optimization problems, etc.) require more and more computing power to solve. Other computing paradigms can help tackle complex problems that arise in high-performance computing and artificial intelligence.
