A strong network:

Friends of HIDA

The mission of the Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy is to train the next generation of data scientists for the world of tomorrow. To achieve this, we work together with partners from science and industry.

Partner for an international network

Our vision is to make the Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy (HIDA) the hub of data science education and training in Germany. As part of a global network, it will contribute to solving major challenges for society, science and industry. Together with our Helmholtz Information & Data Science Schools and excellent German university partners, we would like to invite international partners from science and industry to join us on this journey.

These institutions already cooperate with us

Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst

Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the world's largest funding organization for the international exchange of students and academics. Since its founding in 1925, the DAAD has supported around two million academics at home and abroad. The DAAD is an association supported by German universities and student bodies. Its activities go far beyond awarding scholarships: the DAAD promotes the internationalization of German universities, strengthens German studies and the German language abroad, supports developing countries in establishing efficient universities, and advises decision-makers in education, foreign science, and development policy.

 

Data Science Research Center @ Ben Gurion University

Data Science Research Center @ BGU

The Data Science Research Center at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (DSRC@BGU), established in April 2018, brings together one of the largest multidisciplinary groups of data scientists in Israel.

The center brings together about 100 faculty members from 20 different departments across all faculties at BGU (Engineering, Natural Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Health Sciences, and the Institute for Desert Research), as well as from Soroka Hospital.

The main mission of the center is to promote theoretical and practical research in data mining, machine learning, and Big Data.

Humboldt-Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft

Humboldt-Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft

The increasing automation of infrastructures is accompanied by profound changes in the political, social and cultural context. The AI & Society Lab at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) explores how this development can be made more inclusive, sustainable and compliant with human rights. As an interface and translator between academia, industry, and civil society, the lab's goal is to promote innovative research, interdisciplinary exchange, and knowledge transfer on artificial intelligence (AI).
HIIG was founded in 2011 to conduct research on the development of the internet from a societal perspective and to better understand the digitalization of all areas of life. As the first institute in Germany to focus on the internet and society, HIIG has developed an understanding that focuses on the deep interconnectedness of digital innovations and societal processes.

Weizmann Artificial Intelligence Center

Weizmann Artificial Intelligence Center

Das Weizmann Artificial Intelligence Center (WAIC) basiert auf der führenden Arbeit des Weizmann Instituts in den Bereichen Bildverarbeitung, maschinelles Lernen, Neurobiologie, Datenwissenschaft und Robotik. Das WAIC bildet eine integrative und kollaborative Umgebung zur Erforschung Künstlicher Intelligenz (KI) und der ihr zugrundeliegenden Wissenschaften. Es fördert die Zusammenarbeit sowohl innerhalb des Weizmann Instituts als auch mit KI-Forschern auf der ganzen Welt, mit dem Ziel, das Verständnis für die Grundlagen der künstlichen Intelligenz und die möglichen Folgen ihrer Anwendungen für die Gesellschaft insgesamt zu verbessern. Um die Forschung und Zusammenarbeit im Kernbereich des maschinellen Lernens und der künstlichen Intelligenz zu erleichtern, unterhält das WAIC einen der größten GPU-basierten HPC-Cluster in Israel.

Israel Data Science Initiative

Israel Data Science Initiative

Die Israel Data Science Initiative (IDSI) ist das koordinierende Gremium für die Data Science Research Centers an den israelischen Forschungsuniversitäten. IDSI vereint und koordiniert die Aktivitäten der Forschungszentren für Datenwissenschaften an Israels Universitäten. Es dient als Repräsentant für alle Belange der Datenwissenschaften sowohl für die Industrie als auch für öffentliche Einrichtungen und fördert internationale Kooperationen für seine Mitglieder.

Die Hauptaktivitäten von IDSI beziehen sich auf die Bereiche Forschung, Bildung und Outreach für den staatlichen und industriellen Sektor. Für die Forschung fungiert IDSI als Brücke zwischen den lokalen DS-Forschungszentren und Forschungsorganisationen auf der ganzen Welt, die sich auf die Entwicklung von Data-Science-Methodik und -Praxis konzentrieren. Für die Bildung wird das IDSI die Entwicklung von akademischen DS-Kursen erleichtern, mit besonderem Schwerpunkt auf der Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Universitäten, sowie die Förderung von Online-Kursen für eine breitere Nutzung. Für den Bereich Outreach wird das IDSI mit Regierungsbehörden wie dem Central Bureau of Statistics zusammenarbeiten, um den Zugang zu Umfrage- und Verwaltungsdaten zu erweitern, und es wird mit der Industrie zusammenarbeiten, um sowohl eine Ressource für DS-Expertise bereitzustellen als auch Schulungsprogramme zu ermöglichen.

Academy for Theater and Digitality

Academy for Theater and Digitality

The Academy for Theater and Digitality is a model project of Theater Dortmund for digital innovation, artistic research and technology-oriented education and training. It is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the WILO Foundation and receives funding from the ERDF fund of the European Union. It cooperates with the DTHG, the German Stage Association and, in the future, with other municipal and regional partners.

The academy's location in Speicherstraße will offer nearly 2,000 square meters of space for applied and artistic research, professional training and further education, and for discussion. Here, possibilities for the performing arts in the Digital Modern Age will be explored and new technologies, new work structures, new narratives and new definitions of what it means to be an artist today at the intersection of performing arts and the latest technologies will be developed.

The ACADEMY FOR THEATRE AND DIGITALITY is a place of innovation, inspiration, discourse, exchange, a place with courage for the new and also for failure, for reflection, networking, giving impulses and communication - a place of art!
