University:UNI
Semester:1
Lecturer:Dr. Juliane Jarke
Credit Points:4
Dates:Th 12:00-14:00 MZH 1100
Information:Seminar introduction:
There exists a multitude of ideas and practices that may be subsumed under the heading of Knowledge Management (KM). The aim of the seminar is to discuss different approaches and concepts of knowledge and develop an understanding and appreciation of the rise of Knowledge Management and its relation to ICTs. Through lectures and student-led presentations intends the seminar to demonstrate that Knowledge Management is much more than an assemblage of (ever changing) technological tools that allow more people to collaborate in a faster and more pervasive fashion. Rather Knowledge Management is complex, and very often defined by social and organisational factors. Based on real life case studies will we explore how issues such as location, work practices, political or normative issues, and workarounds are instrinsinc to knowledge sharing and management activities.

Confirmed external speakers:
Stefan Domankse, IT Manager County Council of Lüneburg, Germany
Evangelos Argyzoudis, Senior Consultant at INTRASOFT International S.A., Athens, Greece about ENGAGE (http://www.engagedata.eu/)
Barbara Aronson, World Health Organisation, Geneva, Switzerland about HINARI (http://www.who.int/hinari/en/)

Seminar aims and objectives:
The aim of the seminar is to encourage students to appreciate the complex nature of Knowledge Management and develop a critical understanding of the notions of knowledge, knowledge sharing and management. In order to do so students will be asked to apply theoretical perspectives to real world cases to examine and jointly discuss what Knowledge Management and Information Technologies can and cannot do.

After following this seminar students should be able to:
appreciate the history and development of Knowledge Management and develop an understanding of some of the key themes that have arisen;
develop, understand and evaluate many of the opportunities and limitations that arise from the use of information systems for managing knowledge in and across organisations;
have gained familiarity with a particular area of Knowledge Management through the application of theoretical concepts on a specific case study;
develop group competencies and an interest in team working;
synthesise the different elements of understanding in a verbal presentation and in an essay.

Virtual Reality and Physically-Based Simulation

Module number:M-MI/MA-2
University:UNI
Semester:1
Lecturer:Prof. Dr. Gabriel Zachmann
Credit Points:6
Dates:We 08:00 - 12:00 MZH 1090
Information:Virtual Reality (VR) is a research area at the intersection of computer graphics, physically-based simulation, and 3D human-computer interaction (HCI). VR is concerned with novel interaction devices and interaction metaphors in virtual environments (in particular intuitive and direct metaphors), immersion and presence, and real-time rendering. Another important topic is physically-based simulation in real-time, which tries to simulate real-world phenomena such as fire, cloth, the behavior of rigid objects when colliding with each other, fluids, or objects made of deformable material.

Over the past one or two decades, VR has established itself as an important tool in several industries, such as manufacturing (e.g., automotive, airspace, ship building), architecture, and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, a lot of the techniques and solutions developed in the area of VR can be applied directly to computer games.

In this course, we will first look at the fundamental methods, and then go on to more advanced algorithms that are needed to build complex and full-fledged VR systems or real-time computer games. Example topics are object behavior, acoustic rendering, haptics, and collision detection.

The assignments will be mostly practical ones, based on the cross-platform VR system InstantReality.
Participants can choose the programming language from Java, Javascript, and C++.
You are encouraged to work on assignments in small teams.

Some of the topics to be covered (tentatively):
  • Introduction, basic notions of VR, a few applications
  • VR devices: displays, tracking, input devices, software design
  • Stereo rendering
  • Error correction: tracking correction, filtering
  • Techniques for real-time rendering
  • Fundamental immersive interaction techniques: gesture recognition, navigation, selection, grasping, menues in 3D
  • Complex immersive interaction techniques: world-in-miniature, action-at-a-distance, magic lens, etc.
  • Collision detection
  • Force feedback: rendering forces
  • Acoustic rendering
  • Particle systems
  • Spring-mass systems

Freedom {of Coding} and Standards

Information:Acutal Concepts in Media Theory and in Electronic Art and Design On one hand, standardization is one of the defining aspects of modern life, its presence so pervasive that it is usually taken for granted. However cumbersome, onerous, or simply puzzling certain standards may be, their fundamental purpose in streamlining procedures, regulating behaviors, and predicting results is rarely questioned. Indeed, the invisibility of infrastructure and the imperative of standardizing processes signify their absolute necessity. (Susan Leigh Star et. Al., Standards and their stories, 2009) On the other hand, there is a big movement developing concepts of free and/or open software (F/OSS). Here we are also looking at the ways hackers sustain their productive freedom and the ideals of free speech and transparency. How are this processes connected to invisible standardizing processes? (Gabrielle Coleman, Coding Freedom, 2009) And art and design are imbued by the wish to develop something new! Instrumental for this endeavor is a believe in the possibility of free speculation. But what does this mean? (Anthony Dune, Fiona Raby, Speculative Everything, 2014) Reading analytical essays, treatises and discussions is a precondition to find connections and paradoxes existing between these three aspects: standardization-freedom {of coding}-speculation. Specific examples from the fields of art and design will accompany the literature. The seminar will task participants to express themselves and conduct experiments in different formats of writing. in english Thursdays 14-16h Speicher XI- Seg.4 Room: 3-04-090 First meeting: 15th of October at 14h Blockseminar: 20th/ 21st of Nov.
