The Machine Learning Interest Group (MLIG) aims to bring together scientific staff with an interest in Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence. It is currently open for researchers from University of the Bundeswehr Munich and Helmut Schmidt University/University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg. At the moment we are over 190 people in the MLIG.

Our goals

  • Platform for ML/AI topics at UniBw M and HSU
  • Simplify networking between researchers
  • Encouraging exchange between scientists – across institutes/departments/universities 

What we offer

  • We have regular ONLINE MEETUPs (via BBB) where researchers present their work in the domain of Machine Learning. Usually we have 2-3 presentations which last 15 minutes each. After all presentations we have dedicated breakout rooms, where each topic can be discussed in more depth. 
  • We hold in-person regulars' tables (STAMMTISCH) at UniCasino/Brandl to get to know each other. Before the regulars' table we explore an exciting place at the university together. There are unique opportunities to gain insights into different research fields. For example, we have already visited the GPU cluster "Monacum One" together or the reopened computer museum "datArena".
  • We are organised in an Ilias group. This group has a FORUM for questions, problems, ideas. Moreover, we have an INTRODUCE YOURSELF section where you can leave some words about you and your interests.
