Workshop Morning (11 am - 12.30 pm)

W1: Digital accessibility (German language)

In the Digital Accessibility workshop, participants learn what the terms "barrier-free" and "accessibility" mean, for which groups of people accessibility is relevant and helpful, why accessibility should be taken into account when creating software, how accessibility can be ensured and which tools can help.

After a theoretical overview of the topic of accessibility, the participants learn which procedures can be used to check websites for accessibility. The knowledge gained is then used in small groups to identify barriers of existing websites with the help of the test methods presented.

No previous knowledge of computer science is necessary.

W2: How to validate AI algorithms (english)

In medicine, the importance of AI-based automatic analysis of medical images for applications such as tumor detection, classification and progression modeling is increasing at an enormous pace. There are, however, only a few algorithms that have successfully been translated into clinical practice. In this workshop, several pitfalls related to the validation of AI algorithms will be presented as well as recommendations for overcoming them. In particular, we will discuss how we can make sure to select performance metrics that reflect our biomedical needs.

This workshop focuses on various aspects of how to validate AI algorithms to ensure high-quality research. Several issues will be discussed and solutions proposed how to overcome them.
