The joint intelligence of AI experts gets together to solve today’s industrial problems.

From May 19th – 21st 2021, the AI Marketplace and the AI Living Lab are jointly organizing an Industrial Datathon, the AI DataCOMP.

For a few days, creative and dedicated hackers, data analysts and data scientists from companies, startups, research institutions or universities will have the opportunity to use real data from industrial processes to realize their own AI algorithms and find solutions for industry.

The Datathon is supported by the AICommunityOWL, which held the AI Challenge Days several times last year and organizes and supports activities around AI in OWL.


The best solution will receive the prize of an implementation project in the AI Living Lab.

Only companies, start-ups, universities or research institutions based in Germany are eligible to carry out the implementation project, which is endowed with 10,000€.


The data for the challenges will be provided by düspohl Maschinenbau GmbH. düspohl is an innovative company in the development of profile wrapping technologies, as well as laminating and peripheral machines for the wood and plastics processing industry.

The challenges will remain secret to the AI experts until the event.
