Plenary Key Notes:
Data Science – Past, Present and Future
This presentation will give an overview of the rapid development over the past 15 years of what is often called the “Fourth Paradigm” leading to Open Science and Open Innovation. A number of examples from research infrastructures will be used to illustrate the current situation and the role of global organisations like the Research Data Alliance have in bringing about the revolution in Data Science which is fundamental to this approach. As the internet of things develops some ideas will be shared about the possible future including the impact on the way society copes with the implications
Automated and Connected Driving from a User-Centric Viewpoint
Automated and connected driving can be seen as a paradigm shift in the automotive domain which will change the today’s role of the human driver substantially. More and more parts of the driving task are to be taken over by technical components for different scenarios. The application areas reach from fully automated parking up to automated driving on a highway with different involvements of the driver in monitoring tasks (SAE level 2 to 5). Thus, it is essential to understand how this role change will influence the human driver and how we can support him by designing an easy to understand, safe and comfortable interaction with the automated vehicle.
