BOGY an der Universität Konstanz

Ich habe mein BOGY an der Universität Konstanz im Bereich „Computer Vision and Image Analysis“ absolviert. Meine BOGY Woche begann am 24. März um 10 Uhr. Alle BOGYs trafen sich zusammen mit ihren jeweiligen Tutoren und lernten sich kennen. Nachdem uns grob unterschiedliche Aufgaben der einzelnen Bereiche vorgestellt wurden, welche sehr interessant waren, folgten wir unserem jeweiligen Tutor an unseren Arbeitsplatz.

Accumulation of Sensory Evidence in Self-Motion Perception

Accumulation of Sensory Evidence in Self-Motion Perception

Within the research group Cognition & Control in Human-Machine Systems at Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, we want to study fundamental principles of human perception, and translate them to a variety of applied fields, including the design of virtual environment. One of our research interests, and topic of today’s blog post, is the perception of self-motion.

How to use Crowdsourcing for Research?

How to use Crowdsourcing for Research?

Members of the SFB TRR 161 have recently participated in an “Workshop on Crowdsourcing” at the University of Konstanz. The organizers, Franz Hahn and Vlad Hosu, introduced the use of CrowdFlower for quantitative user-studies. The intention was to get participants familiar with the platform and the basic concepts of crowdsourcing for user studies. All participants were able to design and run their own hands-on experiment, to get a better feel of the challenges and benefits of crowdsourcing.

PhD Students Met in Austria

PhD Students Met in Austria

Together with the Human-Computer-Interaction Group of the University of Stuttgart, the SFB-TRR 161 organized a Winter School in February at Söllerhaus (Kleinwalsertal, Austria). During this three days seminar several visual computing scientists from the University of Stuttgart and the University of Konstanz could intensify their scientific cooperation, exchange their knowledge and talk about their new findings in their projects work. All of the PhD students gave talks and did some demonstrations.
