With the current winter term 2022/2023, I co-organized the seminar “Visual Trend Analysis” at the TU Darmstadt and offered some exciting topics about energy consumption and energy management in the industry. The topics were majorly motivated by the European research project E2COMATION, which has the optimization of energy usage as the goal, at multiple hierarchical layers of a manufacturing process as well as considering the whole life-cycle perspective across the value chain. After the seminar now has ended, I am impressed by the results, which document great overviews of the existing related works but also current scientific insights over the entire energy management domain in the producing industry, such as sensorization, but also analysis, and regulation with/without artificial intelligence methods.
I expect to consider the results of the seminar in the E2COMATION project, in better aligning our achievements to the list of applied approaches and maybe to also optimize our approaches by best practices from the other research works. Furthermore, the results could help to complete scientific publications in particular the related works.
It is planned to continue the collaboration with the Human-Computer Interaction & Visual Analytics team at the seminar next year and I thank Prof. Dr. Nazemi for the opportunity of contributing our industrial-driven research topics to the seminar.
