From June 18 to 22 cluster scientist Christian Scheiderer from the Cybernetics Lab IMA & IfU visited the 46. North American Manufacturing Research Conference at the Texas A&M University in the USA. The conference, which revolves around the latest innovations and developments in manufacturing systems and cyber-physical systems and materials processing, is highly regarded within the specialist community.

Scheiderer, who deals with machine learning in his research, also presented the results of the BRAIN project of the Cluster of Excellence at the conference with the paper „Interdisciplinary data driven production process analysis for the internet of production“ for his cluster colleagues Richard Meyes and Hasan Tercan. BRAIN, which was continued this year as “BRAIN II”, considers data-oriented learning and stimulus-response-oriented learning and aims to a systematic preparation of procedures of machine learning in the context of production in terms of their potential use. From June 10 to 14, the Cluster employee attended the FAIM conference in Columbus, Ohio, which deals with flexible automation and intelligent manufacturing. Scheiderer was there with the paper “Reinforcement Learning for Process Planning of Heavy Plate Rolling”.

During his stay in the US, the CoE scientist used his free time to spend a day at the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, and to accept a challenge of a different kind. So after the conference in Texas he visited an escape room, together with colleagues. An escape room is about solving puzzles as a team. “Unfortunately, we did not solve the quiz, but it was still fun, " Christian Scheiderer résumés the visit.
