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.
Do we have our best ideas while walking? Indeed, but even small movements while sitting improve creativity, as two researchers have discovered.
In the court of public opinion, there are few occasions when violence can be justified, but one stands out: revenge against an aggressor. However, in a series of connected experiments Professor Dr Andreas Eder and Vanessa Mitschke, of the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg, Germany, have illuminated a rather uncomfortable fact about human behaviour and the motivation behind aggressive acts of revenge: while delivering justice may be the intent of retaliation, victim reaction in avenging an aggressor is not without a certain sense of enjoyment.
In liberal-leaning municipalities, there is an increased probability of far-right demonstrations in the wake of unexpectedly strong election results by right-wing populists.
