AI approaches are integral parts of numerous software driven systems today. The engineering of both the AI-part (data, model, AI code) itself and its integration into the overall AI-driven system is critical – and now approached from different research groups and research fields.


This workshop tries to bring together researchers from academia and industry to discuss the topic of Engineering AI and Engineering AI systems from many viewpoints and perspectives. The overall outcome of the workshop will be a short position paper summarizing different aspects and viewpoints of Engineering AI.


Preliminary Schedule

10:00 Opening Greetings (Michael Beigl) 

10:05: Morning Session: AI Engineering Viewpoints

  1. In the morning session, several talks are given by invited speakers. Speaker span numerous disciplines, academia to industry. Each statement will be about 10 minutes + 5 minutes discussion. Statement may give a view on
    1. the definition of AI Engineering: what is AI Engineering – scope and architecture
    2. the dimensions of AI Engineering: what are important aspects to structure AI Engineering along?
    3. the process of Engineering AI Systems: what processes and tools does AI Engineering need?


10:05-10:30 Dr. Constanze Hasterok and Dr. Julius Pfrommer (Fraunhofer IOSB): PAISE – AI Systems Engineering
10:30-10:45 Prof. Dr. Franziska Boehm (FIZ Karlsruhe)
10:45-11:00 Coffee Break
11:00-11:15 Prof. Dr. Peter Sanders (KIT)
11:15-11:30 Prof. Dr. André Platzer (KIT)
11:30-11:45 Martin Schade (VP Priceintelligence)
12:00-12:15 Dr. Victor Pankratius (Head of Software Engineering@Bosch Sensortec)

12:15-12:45 Keynote Prof. Dr. Jan Bosch (Chalmers)

12:45 Lunch and Demos, probably Posters

14:00 AI Engineering Viewpoints (continuation of the morning session)

14:00-14:15 Prof. Dr. Marco Huber (Fraunhofer IPA)


14:15 Afternoon Session: Towards a condensed view on AI Engineering

Part I: Bottom up Creative Process

This discussion session will collect aspects of Engineering AI? A bottom-up session to name all the pieces that make up AI Engineering, split into sub-parts definition, methods, and tools by using brainstorm methods.

Focus on creativity, the outcome is a collection of aspects

Coffee Break

Part II: Top down Define the field

This discussion session will address the question “What are dimensions for Engineering AI?” A top-down session that tries to assemble the field based on the above aspects.

We will focus on structuring the aspects, the outcome can be several models, architectures, processes etc. that make up Engineering AI across disciplines (Software Engineering, Engineering Disciplines, AI-core/algorithms, legal, economics…)

A goal would be to find a common view of what makes up AI Engineering over one discipline shared by all attendees, if this is already possible.

17:00 End
