Machine Learning is increasingly being exploited on campus in various scientific fields, projects, groups and colleagues. Applications encompass for example autonomous accelerators, segmentation of bio-degradable bone implants. particle physics simulations and track detection, automated processing of electron microscopy images. These pages give a brief overview of AI related activities at DESY, and offer opportunities for groups and projects to present themselves and their research fields.
