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.
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.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
