SCIoI is taking part of the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften 2022 with five unique events! We will have Richard Schweitzer and Nicolas Roth showing and performing experiments on eye movements, Dustin Lehmann presenting robot interaction, plus a demonstration on swarm intelligence with Mohsen Raoufi, and a talk with David Bierbach at the Humboldt Labor. Do not…

Time: 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Berlin4Ukraine: Meet & Learn. A networking event for exile researchers. PhD students and researchers from all academic disciplines that had to flee from war, violence and political persecution frequently face similar problems: They want to continue their scientific work but are often unfamiliar with the German research landscape, the academic system as well as the local funding culture. In…

Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am

A cornerstone of SCIoI are the three example behaviors that provide the motivation, as well as the demonstration platforms to showcase the amazing research happening within the cluster. In order to get the ball rolling towards interesting example behaviors, we have recently started regular "integration hackathon" meetings. They bring together people from different projects, who identify…

Date: June 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CEST
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: The abundance of available data on the one hand, and the increase in systems complexity caused by the need to cope with new challenging tasks on the other, have put research on so-called learning and data-driven methods in the agenda of virtually every engineering field. Control theory is no exception. In fact, some of its…

Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

(In-person talk at Science of Intelligence) Workshop: Discussing ethically problematic “incidents” of AI systems In the Thursday morning talk, we discuss ethically problematic incidents of AI that we selected from the AIAAIC Repository. In total, we discuss four cases. In a first step, we present a brief overview what occurred in the respective cases, based on media coverage.…

Date: June 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CEST
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Abstract: I will discuss research on a powerful biological model system, the natural clonal fish Amazon molly. Mothers in this female-only species produce genetically identical offspring, allowing us to employ an experimental twin study approach to address some of the most fundamental questions associated with behaviour and the development of behaviour. Do twins separated directly after…

Date: June 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CEST
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Social interaction and communication are supported by the integration of multimodal signals. One crucial social cue when interacting with other humans are facial expressions. In Project 8, we study how people not only read information from faces, but how they read meaning into faces based on context and prior knowledge. Incorporating sources of information in…

Venue: Mall Anders, Wilma Arkaden
Address: Wilmersdorfer Str. 46

What do sensitive robots, gripping plants and creative bacteria have in common? Let's find out together! In "CollActive Materials" experimental laboratory, a joint project of SCIoI and MoA,  research and society come together to explore the materials of the future: Can they be more active or more intelligent than the materials of today? Come by to discover…

Date: May 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CEST
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Lecture by Prof. Karoline Wiesner, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, University of Potsdam Abstract: I begin with an introduction to the nature of complex systems. From a foundational perspective, I will present a systematic description of their features. This will be followed by a brief discussion of the role of information theory in the analysis of…

Venue: SCIoI, MAR Building
Address: Marchstr. 23

Abstract: Tilman Geishauser is currently working at Somareality to create a virtual reality focused product out of a cognitive load algorithm based on pupillometry that has been in development for 8 years at Research Studios Austria. In the past he invented one of Germanys most promising VR tools: Halocline Layout. He lead his team at what…

Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

"Should I listen to you – or not?" Should I listen to you? Or should I ignore you when making up my mind? And what factors shape my decision-making? Questions like these are the field of behavioral researchers from the Cluster of Excellence “Science of Intelligence”. Here, psychologists, computer scientists, biologists, neuroscientists, educational scientists, philosophers, and…

Venue: MAR 2.057

Abstract:  High motivation and positive emotions are important prerequisites for effective knowledge transfer, while negative emotions can impede the acquisition of new knowledge. This talk presents our current state of research in SCIoI's project 06 that aims at identifying adaptive teaching strategies of humans, and to synthesize them with the goal to test whether these strategies…

Time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Prepare for an extraordinary Science Slam! Young scientists from four Clusters of Excellence of the Berlin University Alliance present their research work in the learning lab Mall Anders in the Wilma Shoppen mall. They only have 15 minutes to present, and everything is allowed: costumes, props, movies, PowerPoint presentations or experimental setups. After the presentations, the…
