Angelica Godinez is a vision scientist and a postdoc researcher at SCIoI working in Martin Rolfs' team on Project 2. Her research aims at understanding visual perceptual processing and action in humans in order to contribute insights to AI and robotics. We spoke to her in order to better understand her project and her work, and
The month of May brings us the first event of the the experimental laboratory CollActive Materials, a joint project of the Berlin Clusters of Excellence Matters of Activity – Image Space Material and Science of Intelligence. In this project, society and science speculate together about the materials of tomorrow: What might they look like or feel like?
We are very proud to announce that last month, our PI Thorsten Pachur recently received a W3 Professorship at the Technische Universität München (TUM). Thorsten, who will still remain a SCIoI PI, studies the cognitive foundations of decision making, and is particularly interested in understanding how the human mind, given informational and computational constraints, can master an uncertain
NEWS: SCIoI in Antarctica! SCIoI collaborated with an Oxford University expedition to observe penguin behavior
What do penguins have to do with SCIoI? Thanks to a collaboration between SCIoI PIs Alex Kacelnik and Guillermo Gallego, SCIoI was able to send event cameras all the way to Antarctica and help researchers install them there in order to study interactions between chinstrap penguins. Can't get more remote than that, can it? Penguins spend most
Why is it important to study interactions between humans and robots? Why do we want our robots to show us their emotions? We've asked our researcher Doris Pischedda about her work with robotic agents, and about the new elective course she is teaching at the Humboldt Universität through the bologna.lab. Doris, you examine interactions between humans and robots. Why do we
