Applied computer scientists at the University of Bamberg are currently developing an AI medical companion that will help doctors in recognising and diagnosing types of cancer and pain.
Three Bamberg researchers discuss how AI research can benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration. Even the speech recognition software Siri gets a word in.
Affective reactions—or gut feelings—play a key role in consumer decision-making. Researchers at the University of Passau are seeking to understand this process better and help consumers make better decisions.
At the HM, Professor Pohlmann and his team are using innovative technologies and approaches to bring back memories to dementia suffers and provide support to their families and caregivers.
Research has established the privacy calculus approach to account for the moment of decision. This video explains what it is all about.
People who deny the existence of facts believe in Fake News more often. People with dark personality traits – those who always put their own benefit first – are particularly often affected.
Dr. Annamária Fábián-Trost, a linguist at the University of Bayreuth, is one of seven outstanding researchers who will receive funding from the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts and the Bavarian Academy of Sciences under the "Digital Transformation" programme starting in October 2022. Her project focuses on digital tools and communicative strategies that are used in social media to discriminate against people with disabilities or, on the contrary, can sustainably strengthen the inclusion of people with disabilities.
Does eye-contact always attract attention? Not in every case, as a research team at the University of Würzburg’s Institute of Psychology has recently shown. Why not? Because context matters.
Anyone walking in the city has to adjust their gait again and again to kerbs or steps. Every person develops control strategies for the changes in muscle activity required for this, which protect them from tripping and falling accidents. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have now analysed these strategies and their effectiveness for the first time, using computer simulations. They were able to show that a strategy based on visual perception, which prepares the muscles for differences in height at an early stage, protects far better than situational muscle reflexes. Their study is presented in "Scientific Reports".
If restaurants list the CO2 emissions for each dish on their menus or highlight low-emission options, diners are more likely to choose more climate-friendly options. This has been shown in a new study by the University of Würzburg.
