HES-SO, the Haute Ecole Arc Ingénierie, UNINE, CSEM and Databooster join their forces to support
SMEs. On 19th January 2023 at 16h30, a presentation of the National Thematic Network (NTN)
Innosuisse DataBooster will be organised at Haute Ecole Arc campus, Espace de de l’Europe 11,
2000 Neuchâtel
(Campus 2, Room, 128)

The Innovation Booster is an Innosuisse-founded initiative which brings together the most
important players from science/research, society and industry. Its main mission is to develop
innovation ideas carried out by interdisciplinary teams.

The Innovation Booster is composed of 18 programs. Each Innovation Booster program
targets a specific domain. One of these programs is Databooster which supports innovation
around data-based value creation. Databooster focuses on the design of data-based services for the
industrial and service sectors. Its goal is to combine new methods and technologies in the field of data
science with new business models and service concepts.

Nowadays, companies collect vast amounts of data to extract information/knowledge. This information
is useful to optimise their process, develop new services and/or products.

The main mission of the Databooster is to support SMEs to :

1. identify their business/technology challenges in a competitive innovation environment,
2. shape their innovation idea and get the opportunity to build their first prototype,
3. have access to funding instruments for their research and development programmes.

Bodensee Summit digital

Ziel des BODENSEE SUMMIT digital ist es, kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen (KMU) mit Praxisbeispielen aus der internationalen Bodenseeregion aufzuzeigen, wie die Herausforderungen der digitalen Transformation und die Einführung von Künstlicher Intelligenz erfolgreich gemeistert und Innovationen hervorgebracht werden können. Bei spannenden Impulsen aus Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft sowie praxisnahen interaktiven Sessions wird neuestes Wissen vermittelt sowie Fragen rund um die Digitalisierung adressiert und mit den Teilnehmer-innen diskutiert.

Der wissenschaftliche Impuls (Universität St. Gallen) sowie sechs interaktive Sessions werden von der Schweizer Seite des Bodenseeraums beigesteuert. Es geht dabei um Themen wie „KI – was kann sie, was kann sie nicht?“, über Möglichkeiten von KI in der Logistik, den profitablen Einsatz einer Blockchain oder „Todsünden“ beim Einsatz von KI. Zudem werden die Unterstützungssysteme Databooster, go Tec! und SmartAR vorgestellt.

Der BODENSEE SUMMIT digital 2022 wird mit der Regierungschefkonferenz der Internationalen Bodensee-Konferenz (IBK) in Herisau (Schweiz) verzahnt. Regierungschefs aus Deutschland, Österreich, Liechtenstein und der Schweiz werden über Rahmenbedingungen für digitale Innovationen aus ihren Ländern berichten.

Die Teilnahme am BODENSEE SUMMIT digital ist kostenfrei. Über die Event-Plattform der virtuellen Veranstaltung können Kontakte geknüpft werden. Nach der Registrierung sind die Profile anderer Veranstaltungsteilnehmerinnen einsehbar. Auf dem Marktplatz kann nach Kooperationsmöglichkeiten gestöbert werden, persönliche virtuelle Treffen können direkt verabredet und durchgeführt werden.

Über den BODENSEE SUMMIT digital

Die jährliche Konferenz bietet Unternehmer*innen, Führungskräften und Innovationsverantwortlichen aller Anrainerländer des Bodensees die Möglichkeit, neues Wissen zu erwerben und sich branchen- und regionsübergreifend auszutauschen und zu vernetzen. Der BODENSEE SUMMIT digital wird im Rahmen der Digitalisierungsinitiative Bodensee von der Internationalen Bodensee-Konferenz (IBK) mit seinen zehn Kantonen, Ländern sowie Bundesländern gefördert und somit in der gesamten Bodenseeregion beworben. Organisator ist das an der HTWG Hochschule Konstanz ansässige Bodenseezentrum Innovation 4.0 (BZI 4.0), Anlaufstelle für KMU in Fragen rund um die digitale Transformation.

Responsible use of health-related data for research – the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN)

As part of the innovation boosters digital health nation and data, powered by Innosuisse, we want to invite you to a webinar about the responsible use of health-related data for research.

The use of sensitive health data in medical research places high demands on data, infrastructures and processes. Thanks to SPHN, a federally commissioned funding initiative, an interoperable and secure data-enabling environment has been created in Switzerland in close collaboration with the five Swiss university hospitals. The goal is to connect researchers with biomedical and routine health care data to promote data-driven research approaches and contribute to making personalized healthcare a reality in Switzerland. With SPHN’s established contractual framework, the network facilitates the responsible use of sensitive health data in strict compliance with ethical and legal principles.

Registration can be found here or you can use the form at the bottom of the page.

Speakers:

Data, Documents & Donuts: Structuring Today’s Data With The Experts

Almost every business process contains documents created for the purpose of human collaboration, and which typically contain some form of data.

Think about studies, technical documents, certificates & regulatory compliance, or contracts – unstructured data within them cannot automatically be processed by machines and are hard to be analyzed without unimaginable amounts of manual effort.

Automatically extracting the relevant information from these documents is a challenging task for many reasons, e.g., a convoluted structure of the documents, tables, pictures, and even handwriting.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to leverage expert knowledge on complex document understanding and extraction.

Address: Acodis, Stadthausstrasse 14, 8400 Winterthur (Floor 3)

Preliminary Agenda:

08:45 – Reception & Welcome Coffee/Donuts 
09:00 – Handwriting recognition (20’ + 5′ Q&A)  
09:25 – KPI Extraction from financial reports (20′ + 5′ Q&A)  
09:50 – An applied research approach to table recognition (20′ + 5′ Q&A)  
10:15 – Extracting and structuring batch records with Acodis (20′ + 5′ Q&A)  
10:40 – Open Discussion and Databooster Ideation 
11:00 – End and farewell

NLP in Insurance

Natural Language Processing (NLP) offers fundamental solutions for tasks such as text classification, automated chatbots, text summarization or speech recognition. How can the Insurance industry benefit from these AI technologies? This is the core question for the upcoming Expert Group Meeting “NLP in Insurance”, which will take place on Montag 31.10.2022 at 16:30  at ZHAW Lagerstrasse, Zurich.

Felix Müller, Senior Data Scientist at Mobiliar, will share insights into their usage of NLP for different applications (e.g. using transformers for claim handling). This will be followed be an open discussion among all participants (experts and users from academia and industry) and a nice apero.

The meeting is jointly organized by the NLP Expert Group, the Expert Group AI in Finance and Insurance, and the Swiss Association for Natural Language Processing (SwissNLP).
