New paper: Computer vs humans as a source of information in teaching environments. Who do we trust more?
Although we often don’t notice, we interact with robots on a daily basis: from the popular “virtual home assistants” answering our questions about the weather to the navigator apps guiding us around our cities, computer voices accompany us wherever we go. But how do our mind really perceive them? Do we really trust them? A study
(Press release) You want to be a leader? You've got to be fast! The spectacular and complex visual patterns created by animal groups moving together have fascinated humans since the beginning of time. Think of the highly synchronized movements of a flock of starlings, or the circular motion of a school of barracudas. Using state-of-the-art robotics, a research

When in danger, fish orient themselves by the reaction of the swarm. International study on swarm intelligence By: Boris Nitzsche In the event of danger, fish schools react at lightning speed and move closer together. While the behavior of individuals under changing environmental influences has already been well researched, the reactions of schools still pose a puzzle. A recent study
