Virtual Reality

Mechanical engineering students have modeled the FINO2 research platform with CAD. This model is to be transformed into VR and enriched with real-platform data downloaded from FINO2. Thus, an interactive model is to be created, where individual sensors can be selected and their individual data collected can be inspected. FINO2 website

Machine Learning

Smart Move is a research group with a focus on artificial intelligence, affective computing, quantified self, motion science, and smart environments. Algorithms are developed to individually detect an activity (e. g., training exercise) and evaluate its quality. We combine physiological (ECG, EMG, respiration, blood markers), kinematic (acceleration, gyroscope) data, or video data (pose estimation, emotion detection) to automatically evaluate the activity and state of people (e.g., stress and exhaustion levels).

LIVING PLACE laboratory

Innovative interactive ubiquitous and tangible concepts and concrete artefacts for the future of living are to be developed at the LIVING PLACE Hamburg. We start from the idea that future smart home environments will no longer be inhabited by the human life form alone, but by responsive and semi-autonomous technical systems that communicate at eye level with the human inhabitants, e.g. plants that are able to move around in space and also supply themselves.

Science & Technology Studies

Modern IT processes are increasingly defining the everyday life of people, both in their professional and private lives. Especially the hype about artificial intelligence / machine learning with its non-transparency of results increases the critical reception of IT artifacts. Thus, the Gesellschaft für Informatik has made an important contribution here with its case studies on the ethical consideration and evaluation of technology development (GewissensBits). Bachelor and master theses are also assigned for individual aspects of this problem area.
