The aim of the AMA project is s to build up the Applied Machine Learning Academy (AMA) based on a sustainable, flexible and applied qualification concept. AMA will offer a rich portfolio of ML learning units - covering courses as well as labs for hands-on experiences - and an expertise sharing network. The focus will be on foundational ML competences on ML competences for the application domain intelligent production (Industry 4.0). An active dialog with Industry and SMEs will ensure a demand-driven traning portfolio.
Digitalization is changing the capability and complexity of technical systems and their processes fundamental. In the industrial environment we see a very high potential in Industry 4.0-applications. The Machine Learning (ML) about Big Data therefore plays a big part. Then again there are studies that show that today 65% of German companies with more than 100 employees do not have any Big-Data-solutions put to good use (yet). Here one of the biggest obstructions, the lack of qualified specialists, becomes clear. Here one of the biggest obstructions, the lack of qualified specialists, becomes clear.
In cooperation with the institute of Manufacturing Technology and Machine Tools (Institut für Fertigungstechnik und Werkzeugmaschinen – IFW) our goal is to build an Applied Machine Learning Academy (AMA) based on a sustainable, flexible and strong application-oriented qualification concept including a varied range of courses and an Expertise Sharing Network. We are focused on the field of application: Industry 4.0 and an intensive dialogue with medium-sized companies and the industry. Furthermore we emphasise the practical use and allow for vigorous testing. Important are the practical phases with real machines in the production line in the context of Industry 4.0.
The main goal of AMA is the training of middle class and industry employees. The AMA content of teaching is also used for improved application-oriented education in university classes.
