Participants: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert, Melanie Neubauer, M.Sc.



  1. Organisatorial progress update by Melanie.
  2. Topics of promising future research direction.
  3. Next steps of Melanie.

Discussion regarding Recycling Lab St. Michael

  • wait for E-Mail from Alexia Tischberger-Aldrian (visit in St. Michael)
  • currently no data available
  • server is set up to collect data
  • various sensors record the data
  • Infos regarding data – see Project Manual p. 16 chapter 7.1

Discussion regarding future publications

1. Publication
– publicate the collected and labeled data from St. Michael
– generate a GUI for labeling the data 
– the labeling is made by study assistants (about 200.000 Images)

2. Publication
– Conference Paper about Particle Tracking
– Train a network on the basis of the first Publication

eventually 3. Publication Transfer Learning
– use Open source Data for training

Main Question: How does a network learn an efficient representation to be able to build a reasonable model (even with a small amount of training data)?

To Do:

  • wait for E-Mail from Alexia Tischberger-Aldrian to visit the Recycling Lab
  • Ask for Waste-RL Dataset from ‘Waste Management’ Paper ( – Images from Waste-RL are not very suitable
  • maybe find some other Dataset instead of Waste-RL
  •  Read Paper Waste Management
  • Use Paper ‘Sparse Detr…’ on the Steel Defect Dataset from the Master Thesis
