Under the motto “GET YOUR #Bits TOGETHER” the first WZL/IMA Industrial Internet of Things Hackathon hosted by the Cybernetics Lab IMA/ZLW & IfU and circle of friends of the WZL of RWTH Aachen took place from January 19 to 21, 2018. 58 students, trainees and young professionals of RWTH Aachen showed their skills in the area of Machine Learning in production technology over the course of 36 hours.

The CoE and the profile area Production Engineering (ProdE), the Metal Forming Institute (IBF) and the Steel Institute (IEHK) of RWTH Aachen collaborated for the implementation of the first Hackathon. Our mangaing director Dr. Matthias Brockmann was also present as a member of the jury. Building on the concepts which were developed, the researchers of the WZL and IMA will now compile intedisciplinary and current topics which will be given back to the students in form of seminar papers and final papers. A win-win situation for everyone!
