Demystifying Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Healthcare
On Monday, October 23, 2023, the seminar Demystification of artificial intelligence in medicine and healthcare was held as part of EDIH DIGI-SI, conducted by the founder and head of the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Maribor, Prof. Dr. Vili Podgorelec. At the seminar, the participants got an insight into the importance of data science and the basic ideas and concepts of machine learning, which is one of the key areas of artificial intelligence. In the foreground were the mechanisms of artificial intelligence, which the lecturer presented using practical and interesting examples. We regularly organize educational seminars on the topic of demystifying modern technologies. In case you want to learn more about technologies like artificial intelligence, high performance computing, cyber security, internet of things, big data, virtual/augmented reality, robotics and blockchain technology, follow the current seminars here.
We invite you to the second professional-educational seminar Demystification of blockchain technology in business, which will take place on Thursday, 14/12/2023, between 10 am and 2 pm on the MS Teams online platform. Again we will be accompanied by an excellent lecturer, head of DIH UM and EDIH DIGI-SI, Assoc. prof. dr. Muhamed Turkanović, who has more than 10 years of experience in the industry at the international level as a developer, technical development manager, technical director and owner of IT companies, and since 2017 has been employed full-time at the University of Maribor, where he teaches subjects related to data technology and information security. dr. Turkanović is also the founder and head of Blockchain Lab:UM within the Institute of Informatics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics (FERI) of the University of Maribor. Participants will learn about the possibilities of using blockchain technology and the advantages of its implementation in their business, especially for upgrading and optimizing their business. Objectives of the seminar: to present the basic concepts of blockchain technology (e.g. distributed data storage, decentralized networks, smart contracts, etc.), to present supporting frameworks, tools and techniques, to present related concepts (e.g. NFT, Web3), to present […]
Demystifying blockchain technology in business
On Monday, 4 December 2023 (13:30-17:00 CET) online introductory tutorial on CernVM-FS will be held via Zoom. Tutorial was developed in collaboration with with the CernVM-FS development team. CernVM-FS, the CernVM File System (also known as CVMFS), is a file distribution service that is particularly well suited to distribute software installations across a large number of systems world-wide in an efficient way. The focus of this tutorial is on explaining what CernVM-FS is, how to access existing CernVM-FS repositories (like EESSI), and covering some aspects specific to using CernVM-FS on HPC systems. It is intended for people with a background in HPC (system administrators, support team members, end users, etc.) who are new to CernVM-FS: no specific prior knowledge or experience with it is required. If you would like to attend this tutorial, please register via https://event.ugent.be/registration/event/84b45c41-b98b-4a41-9aae-60f5f9e89440
Online tutorial: “Best Practices for CernVM-FS in HPC”
MultiXscale, in collaboration with CASTIEL 2 WP3 presents an event aimed at the Center of Excellence, the National Competence Center, their network and the end user. The event will take place online on December 5, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m CET. Have you ever wished that all the scientific software you use was available on all the resources you had access to without having to go through the pain of getting them installed the way you want/need? The European Environment for Scientific Software Installations (EESSI – pronounced “easy”) is a common stack of architecture-optimised scientific software installations for HPC systems and beyond, including laptops, personal workstations, and cloud infrastructure. At the training you will learn what EESSI is, how it is designed, how to gain access to it and how to use it. A number of presentations will be shown, and access to a resource where you can try EESSI yourself will be given. Please register in advance by 1 December, EoB.

On Wednesday, November 29, 2023, a demytifing seminar on cyber security technologies will be held from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The development of information technologies and the Internet means an ever-increasing amount of data and digital services, which brings the challenges of cyber security. Ensuring cyber security includes both technical and non-technical aspects. As part of the seminar, we will focus on the concepts and technologies of cyber security, which are often misunderstood or not known at all. Various aspects of cyber security will be presented as part of the seminar. The basics of cryptography will be presented, with which we want to dispel the mystery surrounding the technologies that are the basis of many security mechanisms. The use of cryptography is also related to digital certificates and public key infrastructure. We will explain concepts such as electronic signature, digital certificate, SIGEN-CA, eOsebna, etc. and possibilities of use in practice. An important aspect of the protection of information systems is also the protection of the communication connection, for which we can use technologies such as HTTPS and VPN, where we will address misconceptions related to the mentioned concepts. By introducing new possibilities for using biometrics, FIDO 2 or PassKey […]
