KI-Para-Mi Kick-off

KI-Para-Mi: Kick-off of the KI-Para-Mi Project (BMBF) as webinar in Munich and Saarbrücken. In KI-Para-Mi, we develop an intelligent personnel planning system for flexible shift scheduling in nursing, which above all takes into account the interests of the employees.

Multimodal Multisensor Interface Trilogy published

Multimodal Multisensor Interface Trilogy published

The Handbook of Multimodal-Multisensor Interfaces provides the first authoritative resource on what has become the dominant paradigm for new computer interfaces-user input involving new media (speech, multi-touch, hand and body gestures, facial expressions, writing) embedded in multimodal-multisensor interfaces. This three-volume handbook is written by international experts and pioneers in the field. It provides a textbook, reference, and technology roadmap for professionals working in this and related areas.

Kognit Science Events in 2015

KDI: in The science events that shaped 2015 (Nature)

US President Barack Obama announced the Precision Medicine Initiative:
Tailoring treatments to individual patients has long been a goal in biomedicine, but US President Barack Obama gave this effort a big boost with his announcement in January of the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI). As part of the US$215-million programme, which will award its first grants next year, the NIH and partner organizations will recruit one million people across the country, collecting genetic information, health records and even data from electronic health-monitoring devices. Researchers will use the information to look for links between disease risk and genetic and environmental factors.

ERmed: Evaluation

ERmed: First evaluation on the ability to accurately focus on virtual icons in each of several focus planes despite having only monocular depth ques, confirming the viability of these methods for interaction.

ERmed Evaluation ELTE

ERmed: Second evalution at ELTE in Budapest focussing on self-calibrating eye-tracking, robust gaze-guided object recognition and how “artifical salience” can modulate the gaze (un)consciously.

ERmed Eye Gaze ELTE

ERmed: In Budapest, Takumi and Jason work on a combination of eye gaze and dynamic text management that allows user centric text to move along a user’s path in realtime.

First Demo of THESEUS MEDICO Radpeech at ISI Erlangen

First Demo of THESEUS MEDICO Radpeech at ISI Erlangen.

Professor Alexander Cavallaro’s vision of the educated lymphoma patient of the future is very different from today’s patient, who carries the computed tomography (CT) images of his lungs and abdomen home on a CD or DVD after a routine radiological examination.

How semantic technologies can be applied to medicine was illustrated by the THESEUS MEDICO research project, which brought together radiologists from the University of Erlangen, experts from the German Research Center on Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), as well as researchers from Siemens, the Fraunhofer Society, and TUM (Technische Universität München). “MEDICO” was one of several cases put forward for the use of the THESEUS research program, which was initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology in 2007, in order to support technologies for an “Internet of services.
