GUIDE-days "Göteborgs universitet: Industrial Dating Event"

The Faculty of Science at University of Gothenburg is offering opportunities for representatives of the industry to meet up with strong research groups from the university in order to engage into problem-solving collaborations.

Why Guide-days?

Our vision is to initiate and further develop engaging and successful collaborations and innovations between academia and commercial actors, between researchers and industrial partners. Thus, GUIDE-days aspire to establish strong and enduring links in the form of joint projects, education programs with synergistic Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. projects as well as courses, or even opportunities to create shared office spaces between industrial and academic partners.

 

What's in it for the industry?

GUIDE-days can help find a matching partner working on a related topic within a similar or from a different discipline. Together, new perspectives are explored and solutions developed to the problems at hand.

What’s in for the academic fellows?

GUIDE-days can help establish new career and innovation paths and provide possibilities to attract project funding for applied sciences.

This year's opportunity

Medical diagnostics with artificial intelligence - 14-15 September 2022

Diagnosing a patient and understanding mechanistic medical correlations require extensive training and expertise in both industrial and academic settings. In order to facilitate these processes, the branch of artificial intelligence known as machine learning can be applied. Machine learning uses statistical methods to train algorithms to perform automated classifications or predictions from large data sets. To optimally help decision-makers, skilled scientists need to be exposed to the most relevant questions and team up with the sector that owns the data to answer them.  

Academia has experts working on machine learning methods across wildly different fields such as medicine and life sciences, aquaculture, ocean monitoring, renewable energy, and transport. We want to hear about companies’ challenges in automated medical diagnostics as we believe that joint forces and cross-sector collaborations can solve such issues.

Are you interested?

Would you and your enterprise be interested in joining our GUIDE-days on 14-15 September 2022? Do you have a particular problem in the field of “Medical diagnostics with artificial intelligence ” that you would like to bring to our attention?

Image processing with artificial intelligence (AI), 13-14 October 2021

Image processing with AI is a fast-evolving field of research with applications in many sectors of the industry. Interestingly, several limitations and obstacles are common to all enterprises developing image-processing applications. For example, how to organize feedback loops to achieve good validation, supervised training, and semi-automation. Different industrial applications may display similar human-in-the-loop interactions across different industrial applications.

We have experts working on problems across wildly different fields such as medicine and life science, aquaculture, ocean observation, renewable energy, and transport. We want to hear about companies’ challenges in the Gothenburg region in automated image processing and AI. We believe academia and industry can join forces in cross-sector collaborations trying to solve such issues.

  • Session A: Machine learning in subsea image analysis
  • Session B: Computer vision in the automotive industry
  • Session C: Image analysis in life science applications

We want to help foster ties between researchers and businesses in relation to well-defined issues. Our hope is that the conversations we have had beforehand and over the course of these two days will lead to trusting, long-term relationships that can benefit both parties

13-14 October marked the première of the “dating days” bringing together industry and academia in order to find solutions to specific problems and to form partnerships.

The theme for this first meeting was “Image processing with artificial intelligence”. 

“We want to help foster ties between researchers and businesses in relation to well-defined issues. Our hope is that the conversations we have had beforehand and over the course of these two days will lead to trusting, long-term relationships that can benefit both parties.” says project directors Caroline Beck Adiels and Matthias Obst.

During the first day, invited representatives from various companies described the challenges they have faced in terms of AI-driven image analysis. Participants then sought to identify overlapping issues through discussion, and on the following day these will feed into those issues that will form the basis of broader cooperation. Find out more about the previous event.

The “dating days” have been named GUIDE days, which stands for Gothenburg University: Industrial Dating Event.
