4 SWS, Schwerpunkt: IMVA-DMI
In this seminar, we want to investigate current tools and models (e.g., Dall-E2, ChatGPT) for creating content. We will discuss the idea and design and the implications for artists, developers, and researchers. Therefore, we will read current research papers and develop applications that use these models. We want to design and create new interfaces and ideas to support users with these tools. The course is open to Digital Media and Computer Science students.

03-DMM-MA-2-ACCAlgorithms for Creative Coding

Kurs (Teaching)
ECTS: 6

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Mon. 08:00 - 12:00 MZH 1100 Kurs

This course is for students who have already attended a programming course and are familiar with basic programming concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, and objects. In this course, we will extend these programming skills towards more complex actions and interactions on the screen. We will be using the Processing programming environment. The main literature will be "The Nature of Code" by Daniel Shiffman (the book is available online for free).

This course is not available for students of computer science, business informatics, or systems engineering.

As the course has a major overlap with my previous course "Advanced Techniques for Creative Coding in Processing" as well as with the combination of my previous courses "Programming Dynamic Environments (PDE)" and "Programming Autonomous Agents (PAA)", students who already attended these courses cannot participate. Exception: If you attended only one out of PDE and PAA, you have the option to get 3 Credit Points in this course.

One main topic of this course will be autonomous agents, e.g. programs that are "intelligent" (not really ...) and make own "decisions", such as non-player characters in computer games. Some basic concepts regarding decision-making, path planning, and swarm behaviors will be introduced. We will also have a short look at evolutionary algorithms, which enable our programs to adapt over to time.
Furthermore, we fill focus on objects that move, accelerate, collide, and bounce. We will explore the basic formulas and approaches that allow us to let dynamic things happen on our screens. The basic concepts and the usage of a physics engine will be explained, too.

Schwerpunkt: IMVA-AI, IMVA-DMI
https://lvb.informatik.uni-bremen.de/imva/03-imva-acss.pdf
The aim of this course is to create an understanding of the major aspects of sports applications. The course is split into two parts: the first half has a classic lecture/tutorial style, whereas the second half will focus on the creation of individual sports applications.

The lectures will explain the necessary fundamentals, such as sensor technology, user feedback, and the conduction of empirical studies, along with a number of inspiring examples.

In the project part, own prototypes for sports applications are developed in small groups. The exact application as well as the technical implementation approach can be chosen freely. The final graded outcome of the course will be a small sports application about which a presentation has to be held and a documentation in a scientific paper style has to be written.

The course will be held in English.

Schwerpunkt: AI, DMI

Seminar (Teaching)
ECTS: 1

https://lvb.informatik.uni-bremen.de/igs/03-ibfs-tstud.pdf
Zu Beginn jedes Semesters findet eine Infoveranstaltung statt, wo die Scheinkriterien für Versuchspersonen erläutert werden. Außerdem werden (aufbauend auf den Inhalten von WA1) Forschungsmethoden von Studien mit Versuchspersonen vermittelt.
Im weiteren Verlauf des Studiums sollen Studierende 15 Versuchspersonenstunden absolvieren (d.h. an mehreren Studien teilnehmen). Jede Studienteilnahme wird mit Versuchspersonenstunden vergütet, die in ECTS anerkannt werden können. Die Versuchspersonenstunden können über mehre Semester gesammelt werden.
Die Teilnahme an den Studien soll in einer schriftlichen Ausarbeitung dokumentiert und reflektiert werden.



At the beginning of each semester, an information session is held where the certificate criteria for subjects are explained. In addition, research methods of studies with test subjects are taught (building on the contents of WA1).

Later in the program, students are expected to complete 15 subject hours (i.e., participate in different studies). Each study participation is compensated with subject hours, which can be recognized in ECTS. The subject hours may be accumulated over multiple semesters.

Participation in the studies should be documented and reflected upon in a written paper at the end.
The selection of participants is made manually after registration.

Users who wish to register for this event will receive more detailed information and can then still decide against participation.
