We held the 1st Flee Workshop at the Adama Science and Technology University in Adama, Ethiopia on 16-18th of July 2019. The workshop had approximately 25 participants, and was largely funded through the Gesellschaft Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and HESC, the authority for Higher Education in Ethiopia.
Martin Maritsch and Kevin Winter (Area Knowledge Discovery) participated in a Student Challenge organized by the HiPEAC (European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) consortium. On the topic 'AI for Humanity', they submitted their work with the title 'Mining Call Detail Records to understand Cross-border Refugee Movements', which was accepted by the jury for presentation at the Computing Systems Week Spring 2019 in Edinburgh.
Derek Groen from the HiDALGO consortium is one of the participants in the panel discussion "Capacity building: how to create a data economy?" within the Digital4Med conference of the European Commission.
The live panel discussion starts at 16:30 today!
