Workshop Descriptions

1:30pm – 3:00pm

I am Remarkable

Rowena Marin & Pavani Vantimitta

The Workshop will highlight to participants the importance of self promotion in their careers and provide them with the tools to start developing this skill.

Design and Develop a Digital Product

Alexandra Wenzel

The times when IT departments were told what to implement are over. Today, business and IT work together in agile cross-functional teams on groundbreaking innovations and business models that change our society and our way of working. How does someone, who designs and develops in this innovative environment, work? In this workshop, you will get to know the tools of a digital designer and apply them in a case study. We learn to understand what it means to use a design system and how we design and develop digital products with agile methods and techniques.

Simple Sentiment Analysis

Robin Rojowiec

Sentiment analysis is the task of predicting a sentiment label for a given text, describing the overall mood of the text (positive, neutral, negative). It has a wide variety of applications, e.g. analysing customer reviews or finding complaints and issues in customer service.

In this workshop, we will implement a simple sentiment prediction model which achieves considerable accuracy. Further, the advantages/disadvantages of the model as well as improvements will be discussed. The participants should have Python 3.6+ and Jupyter notebooks installed to develop and run code (I recommend using anaconda for setup). We will keep it simple and use no additional libraries for implementation.

The dataset for training and testing the machine learning model can be downloaded here:

Building a Chatbot

Maike Havemann

Gartner predicts that, by 2020, the average person will have more conversations with chatbots than with their spouse. In this workshop we will live up to the hype and you will learn how to build your own chatbot. A fixed set of topics is provided, however you can come up with your own idea, in case there is something you ever wanted to build a bot for. We are going to use the Google Dialogflow Toolkit with Intents and Entities (no coding required). It would be very helpful if you already have a Google account for Dialogflow when the workshop starts and bring you Laptop.
