A virtual “Werkstatt” for digitization in the sciences

The project “A virtual “Werkstatt” for digitization in the sciences” is funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation at University Jena, as part of the Michael Stifel Center Jena. “Werkstatt” is German for “workshop”: a place to get work done. Foundations for new paths within data science will be laid here using machine learning techniques, either in fully-automated fashion, or using human-machine interactions. The main goals are to make the usage scientific data more efficient and to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in all fields of digitalisation.
