Winter School ’18: HCI Technologies for Augmenting the Human Senses

Winter School ’18: HCI Technologies for Augmenting the Human Senses

In the 4th winter school, we focus on technologies for extending the human senses and cognition. We look at the intersection of scientific fields for opportunities to amplify our abilities as humans in perceiving our surroundings. We explore creating new senses such as a sense of location and a sense of emotional intelligence besides the five classical ones (vision, audition, gustation, olfaction, and somatosensation). Through a series of interactive activities, we capture innovative use cases while exchanging methodologies on how to conduct impactful research.

WAHM: 4th workshop on Ubiquitous Technologies for Augmenting the Human Mind – Sharing Experiences

Date: September 12, 2017

Time: 8:30 - 17:30

Location: Maui, Hawaii, USA

Organized by AMPLIFY

WAHM: 4th workshop on Ubiquitous Technologies for Augmenting the Human Mind – Sharing Experiences

The workshop was held in the premier conference for Ubiquitous Computing technologies (UbiComp 2017 – ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing). We brought together 30 researchers from reputable industrial entities (such as Google) and academia to discuss the opportunities and challenges for extending both the individual and the shared mind.  Through 12 position papers, we explored topics like detection of cognitive states, augmenting our thoughts, augmenting the classical senses, and the meta-future of augmented cognition. The series of workshops is now a regular venue for researchers to inspire international collaboration on research grants.

Friends of the University

Date: July 3, 2017

Time: 19:00 - 21:00

Location: Stuttgart, Germany

Supported by AMPLIFY

Friends of the University

As a part of the traditions in the university, we host an open lab session for a general science audience including people from industry. The event serves as a hub for University Alumni to stay in touch.  Prominent industrial leaders such as Dr. Ing. Volkmar Denner, the CEO of Robert Bosch GmbH and ca. 170 guests attended the event to see the latest advancements of research in the university. AMPLIFY members presented several prototypes such as: On-demand super vision and visualizations of lifelogs over TV screens.

Workshop on amplification and augmentation of human perception

Date: May 7, 2017

Time: 9:00 - 17:00

Location: Denver, CO, USA

Organized by AMPLIFY

Workshop on amplification and augmentation of human perception

The workshop was held in the premier conference for Human Computer Interaction ( CHI 2017 – Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems). We brought together researchers who look at opportunities of using technologies to amplify and augment human perception to keep up with technical advances. We explored topics like: sensory illusions and substitutions, enhancing communication and immersion, adopting animals’ sensory models in humans, remote motor activation of people, and bodily experiences. We accepted 18 position papers and 6 posters in the workshop and held numerous activities to foster intriguing discussions in the scientific community.

Openlab ERC-Week

Date: March 15, 2017

Time: 16:00 - 20:00

Location: Stuttgart, Germany

Supported by AMPLIFY

As part of the ERC week 2017 , we host an open lab session in our group (HCI lab, Visualization & Interactive System Institute). In this outreach event,  we invite people who are interested in research and who are curious about how we work and how research in human-computer interaction is conducted

Inventors workshop: Using Physiological Sensing for Embodied Interaction

Start date: March 9, 2017

End date: March 11, 2017

Time: 11:00 - 18:00

Location: Stuttgart, Germany

Supported by AMPLIFY

Inventors workshop: Using Physiological Sensing for Embodied Interaction

The workshop was conducted in the HCI lab in the Visualization and Interactive Systems Institute. We introduced the basic concepts for sensing of human muscle activity. We provided a basic explanation of how physiological sensing works, introduced how it can be technically realized, and showed different applications and usage scenarios. Students pitched and implemented interesting prototypes.

Winter School ’17: Challenges in Interacting with Social Media and Complex Information

Start date: February 3, 2017

End date: February 11, 2017

Location: Hirschegg, Austria
