Nanoroboter steuern erstmals durchs Auge

  • 02 November 2018

Wissenschaftler entwickeln speziell beschichtete Nanopropeller, die von außen durch dichtes Gewebe wie den Glaskörper eines Auges gesteuert werden können. Bisher war es lediglich möglich Mikroroboter durch Modellflüssigkeiten zu bewegen – nicht aber durch echtes Gewebe. Die Forschungsarbeit wurde im Fachjournal Science Advances veröffentlicht. Das internationale Forscherteam ist damit dem Ziel einige Schritte nähergekommen, Nanoroboter als minimal-invasive Werkzeugen zu nutzen: eines Tages sollen sie Medikamente genau dorthin transportieren können, wo sie gebraucht werden – ohne einen größeren operativen Eingriff vornehmen zu müssen.

The German Association for Pattern Recognition praises her work to be “outstanding”

Tübingen – Dr. Siyu Tang received the DAGM MVTec 2018 Dissertation Award at the German Conference on Pattern Recognition (GCPR) conference in Stuttgart today. Her thesis with the title “People Detection and Tracking in Crowded Scenes” was praised by the board and the technical committee of the DAGM (Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Mustererkennung) to be outstanding. “There was quite some competition this year”, said Reinhard Koch, the President of DAGM, which can be translated as German Association for Pattern Recognition. “This year we even decided to double the award money and grant two first places. Mrs. Tang will receive one of both. Congratulations for this achievement!” The award comes with a price money of 2.500 Euro and was given during the DAGM Award ceremony on Wednesday afternoon.

Erforschung der Selbstwahrnehmung mittels Virtueller Realität – ist dieser Avatar wirklich ich?

  • 10 October 2018

Wie nehmen wir unser eigenes Körpergewicht wahr? Welches Körpergewicht finden wir attraktiv?

Ein interdisziplinäres Team von Wissenschaftlern/innen des Max-Planck-Instituts für Biologische Kybernetik, der Universität Tübingen und des Max-Planck-Instituts für Intelligente Systeme stellt Testpersonen vor ihr virtuelles Abbild und untersucht ihre Selbstwahrnehmung. Ziel der Studien ist es zu erforschen, wie gesunde Frauen und Männer sowie Patientinnen mit „Anorexia nervosa“ (Magersucht) ihr eigenes Körpergewicht einschätzen. Die Forschungsergebnisse liefern Erkenntnisse für neue Therapieansätze bei Menschen mit Essstörungen.
