Smart clothing, mini-eyes, and a virtual twin – Artificial Intelligence at ICT 2015

13.10.2015

Training in intelligent clothing, a look through the smart eyes of the future, and a meeting with a virtual twin – Innovative AI-technologies from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) at ICT 2015 Exhibition in Lisbon.

ICT 2015 is the biggest event on the EU calendar for Information and Communication Technologies. The latest strategies and initiatives in European IT research and innovation in addition to the outstanding project results will all be presented on October 20-22, 2015 in Lisbon, under the motto "Innovate, Connect, Transform."


Eyes of Things: The mini-camera.

AWAIBA

Three projects from the DFKI Augmented Vision research department have been selected to participate in this interactive Best Practice exhibition. Among them, as one of five concepts in Europe to be exhibited at the popular public discussion forum, is the EASY-IMP project managed by DFKI for the development of intelligent cloud applications for smart clothing.

EASY-IMP - Smart Clothing with intelligent applications in the cloud

In the EASY-IMP project, DFKI manages innovative approaches to the development of products and services in the area of intelligent clothing and body-worn sensors. In a special cloud platform, feedback is exchanged, "Wearables" (products and applications) are jointly developed, and the applications can be customized and combined.

The results based on EASY are new innovative functions and business models that provide a variety of new applications to the user. Starting on October 18, 2015, four pilot applications from the areas of sports, games, rehabilitation, and medicine will be exhibited in the ICT Pavilion at the Praça do Comércio.
(Off-site Area (Praça do Comércio, Lisbon, 18 - 22 October 2015)

Eyes of Things - Mini-eyes for the Internet of Things

The aim of the "Eyes of Things" project is to develop energy efficient applications for miniature cameras, which can be used in many areas, for example, in Wearable Computing, Augmented Reality, or Ambient Assisted Living. The core technology is a tiny camera that can be positioned on a processor chip. Such cameras have previously been used for medical endoscopic purposes. The new applications are expected to enable the cameras to capture and analyze the most extensive range of visual data while consuming the least energy possible. Future intelligent systems will be able to interactively perceive environments more comprehensively and for longer periods. Some of the initial functions will be demonstrated on a prototype processor.

AlterEgo - The virtual twin for difficult therapies

In the EU's "AlterEgo" project, physicians and DFKI scientists work on innovative treatments and learning methods to assist people with social handicaps like autism or schizophrenia. Following the principle that interaction is easier with a similar counterpart, patients experience long term improvement by training with a virtual character closely modeled after themselves and then with a humanoid robot. It is based on the precise scan of the patient and the reconstruction of the features in a digital avatar that adapts to the graduated progress of the therapy. At ICT 2015, the AlterEgo project demonstrates an interactive game that uses a virtual twin and is currently undergoing therapeutic evaluation as well as incremental use.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
