Cognitive Augmentation (Dagstuhl Seminar 22491)

Authors: Kai Kunze, Pattie Maes, Florian `Floyd' Mueller, and Katrin Wolf

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 12, Issue 12 (2023)


Abstract
Mobile phones and other connected wearable systems transformed the way we interact with information, offering access to vast amounts of knowledge at our fingertips. However, the challenge remains on how to make this information more accessible and intuitive. The field of cognitive augmentation aims to enhance our cognitive abilities through technology, allowing us to interact with digital data more naturally and efficiently. This Dagstuhl Seminar brought together experts in neuroscience, psychology, physiology, wearable computing, human-computer interaction, machine perception, and pattern recognition to discuss the possibility of augmenting our cognitive skills and creating new digital senses. The seminar explored the latest findings in these fields and their potential for improving human performance, productivity, and creativity. Ultimately, the goal is to bridge the gap between humans and machines, enabling a more seamless and intuitive interaction between the two. The main discussion topic centered around the possibilities and challenges of digitally augmenting our cognition.

Beyond VR and AR: Reimagining Experience Sharing and Skill Transfer Towards an Internet of Abilities (Dagstuhl Seminar 17062)

Authors: Anind D. Dey, Jonna Häkkilä, Niels Henze, and Kai Kunze

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 7, Issue 2 (2017)


Abstract
With recent development in capture technology, preserving one's daily experiences and one's knowledge becomes richer and more comprehensive. Furthermore, new recording technologies beyond simple audio/video recordings become available: 360° videos, tactile recorders and even odor recorders are becoming available. The new recording technology and the massive amounts of data require new means for selecting, displaying and sharing experiences. This seminar brought together researchers from a wide range of computing disciplines, including virtual reality, mobile computing, privacy and security, social computing and ethnography, usability, and systems research. Through lightning talk, thematic sessions and hands-on workshops, the seminar investigated the future of interaction beyond virtual and augmented reality. Participants reimagined experience sharing and skill transfer towards an Internet of abilities. We conclude with a set of open and guiding questions for the future of our field.

Eyewear Computing – Augmenting the Human with Head-mounted Wearable Assistants (Dagstuhl Seminar 16042)

Authors: Andreas Bulling, Ozan Cakmakci, Kai Kunze, and James M. Rehg

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 6, Issue 1 (2016)


Abstract
The seminar was composed of workshops and tutorials on head-mounted eye tracking, egocentric vision, optics, and head-mounted displays. The seminar welcomed 30 academic and industry researchers from Europe, the US, and Asia with a diverse background, including wearable and ubiquitous computing, computer vision, developmental psychology, optics, and human-computer interaction. In contrast to several previous Dagstuhl seminars, we used an ignite talk format to reduce the time of talks to one half-day and to leave the rest of the week for hands-on sessions, group work, general discussions, and socialising. The key results of this seminar are 1) the identification of key research challenges and summaries of breakout groups on multimodal eyewear computing, egocentric vision, security and privacy issues, skill augmentation and task guidance, eyewear computing for gaming, as well as prototyping of VR applications, 2) a list of datasets and research tools for eyewear computing, 3) three small-scale datasets recorded during the seminar, 4) an article in ACM Interactions entitled "Eyewear Computers for Human-Computer Interaction", as well as 5) two follow-up workshops on "Egocentric Perception, Interaction, and Computing" at the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) as well as "Eyewear Computing" at the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp).

Human Activity Recognition in Smart Environments (Dagstuhl Seminar 12492)

Authors: James L. Crowley, Kai Kunze, Paul Lukowicz, and Albrecht Schmidt

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 2, Issue 12 (2013)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 12492 "Human Activity Recognition in Smart Environments". We established the basis for a scientific community surrounding "activity recognition" by involving researchers from a broad range of related research fields. 30 academic and industry researchers from US, Europe and Asia participated from diverse fields including pervasive computing, over network analysis and computer vision to human computer interaction. The major results of this Seminar are the creation of a activity recognition repository to share information, code, publications and the start of an activity recognition book aimed to serve as a scientific introduction to the field. In the following, we go into more detail about the structure of the seminar, discuss the major outcomes and give an overview about discussions and talks given during the seminar.
