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.
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.
Production workers instructed with augmented reality glasses can work much faster than colleagues instructed with analog methods. However, an international study shows that they are less capable of internalizing their tasks and of making suggestions to improve production processes. These insights may help companies when adapting AR applications to their needs and balancing productivity gains against process optimization priorities.
The images are legendary: Tennis stars who hit the deciding match ball just outside the line, golfers who putt the ball past the cup from only inches away, and speakers who suddenly can't say a word. These individuals all have one thing in common: They are unable to access their performance abilities in a crucial situation. A research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) investigated the phenomenon and has come up with a solution.
Marketing professionals know that a smile goes a long way. As a result, salesclerks with a beaming smile generally achieve higher sales. However, that is only true if their cheerfulness does not come across as fake. An obviously fake smiles can have exactly the opposite effect. Sometimes, however, the question of "real or fake" does not seem to matter, as a study by the University of Augsburg, Germany and Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia has now shown. The results were published in the journal Psychology & Marketing.
Human intelligence is closely associated with functional brain networks: The better these networks are developed, the easier it is for the brain to adapt to different tasks, this is shown by a new study of the University of Würzburg.
