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.

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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
