Digitalisation in Dialogue.

Exchange and Cooperation between Universities and Industry

"Digitalisation in dialogue" means exchange and cooperation between universities and industry
on the comprehensive topic of "digitalisation". The aim is to interlink theory and practice. The focus is on mutual learning from each other, the recognition of market needs and future trends.

DIT pursues the following goals through the initiative "Digitalisation in Dialogue":

  •     Further development of the study courses and courses of study with regard to digitalisation
  •     Identifying the needs of the market, which should be reflected in research topics and research processes
  •     Development of student projects with partners from the economy
  •     Development of new forms of teaching in the digital age

We started our digitalisation offensive with a top-class symposium under the direction of Prof. Dr. Thomas Bartscher in September 2018 and are continuing the series of events with faculty forums, the so-called DigiCamps.


At the DigiCamps the exchange between science and practice takes place: Companies and their employees are in dialogue with lecturers and researchers of the faculties and their students.


  •     Identifying digitisation trends in relevant industries or in a significant topic area with all its implications
  •     Discuss and evaluate digital trends on the basis of concrete case studies
  •     Raising awareness of the issue of digitisation
  •     Building a network for the participants

Invited are entrepreneurs and their employees, students, university members and the interested public.

Deggendorf Institute of Technology, ITC2 - Glass House, Dieter-Görlitz-Platz 2, 94469 Deggendorf, Germany


For many years, the legislator has been striving to establish a telematics infrastructure in the German healthcare system. Already today, basic functions such as the insured person master data service have been implemented. Further functions, such as the electronic doctor's letter or the ePrescription, have already been defined. According to the planned eHealth Act II, an electronic health record should also be available to the legally insured by 2021, in order to facilitate communication and coordination between service providers, patients and health insurers by digital means. This is intended to avoid duplicate structures and duplicate examinations and to improve patients' sovereignty in handling their data.

Since 2006, implementation of the telematics infrastructure and the associated digital options has been making slow progress. In 2018, health insurance companies such as Techniker Krankenkasse and AOK will have set up their own electronic health records for their policy holders. 

The relaxation of the ban on remote treatment also opens up new opportunities for online video consultation hours between doctors and patients.

In the DigiCamp the current developments and the attempt of an outlook will be undertaken.

Mastering digitalisation with confidence: Security as a pioneer of new business models

Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Media Technology and Computer Science 

Management Prof Dr Martin Schramm

Friday, 24 May 2019, 1 - 4.30 pm

Deggendorf Institute of Technology, ITC2 - Glass House, Dieter-Görlitz-Platz 2, 94469 Deggendorf, Germany


Future-oriented IT security technologies penetrate digitalisation and change the laws of the market. In the context of this DigiCamp, two particularly disruptice technologies and their effects will be highlighted.

The Distributed-Ledger-Technologies describe a technique for networked systems with which a consensus on a sequence of transitions is formed in a tamper-proof way. In German called "Distributed Ledger", a decentralised database is understood, which allows participants of a network a common read and write authorisation. In contrast to a centrally managed database. New records can be added at any time by the participants themselves. A subsequent update process ensures that all participants always have the latest version of the database.

Artificial Intelligence describes the ability of autonomous digital systems to recognise patterns and logics on the basis of which independent decisions are made and improvements are derived from the resulting actions. Especially in the area of Industry 4.0 and due to the trend of autonomous driving in the automotive industry, methods of Artificial Intelligence are already successfully in use. Also in many other branches of industry a rapid spread can be observed.

The combination of both technologies enables the creation of completely autonomous networks, which in turn will pave the way for new business models.

In a joint dialogue with partners from industry and science, you will gain insight into the disruptive innovations of distributed ledger technologies and Artificial Intelligence and can discuss with experts about the implications of these technologies for your company.

Everyone is talking about it and agrees that "digitalisation" is the order of the day. But how can companies make themselves digitally fit? What needs to be taken into account and how do you proceed correctly and with a plan?

After all, a successful implementation of digitalisation often fails because of an individual strategy, because digitalisation is much more than the usual online trade and its ERP processes. It is important to identify optimisation potential along the value chain and in the product portfolio that will bring functional or cost benefits. Pragmatic actionism is just as nonsensical as an overly complex digitalisation vision.

The virtual DigiCamp "DigiFitnessCheck" should help companies to develop an adapted and individual digitalisation strategy for themselves in order to successfully face the digital future. 


5 - 5.20pm: Welcome and opening of the event
                       Introduction to the topic "Digital transformation: Trends, Skills, Strategy" - Prof Dr Patrick Glauner, DIT

AI Working Groups

The AI Working Groups are a special form of DigiCamps, because here it is all about Artificial Intelligence (AI). There are always individual topics of emphasis at the appointments.

Organiser is the Faculty of Applied Computer Science under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Heribert Popp.


Chatbots - Our communication helpers, 27 March 2019, 2 pm

The communication with customers will change drastically in the next few years. One reason for this are the so-called chatbots. They are currently frequently used in customer service, where they simulate a conversation between the customer on the one hand and the salesperson or the service provider on the other. However, can chatbots show empathy for the customer, perceive upselling potential or answer complex questions? What roles does artificial intelligence play here?

Exactly these topics are discussed with you in our AI working group. Are you a specialist or manager in your company and interested in implementing chatbots? You are a computer scientist or IT specialist and want to support your departments with modern IT solutions? - Then the AI working group is the right place for you!
