Wearables and Machine Learning

September 16, 2019 - September 20, 2019
10:00 - 19:00

Berlin Open Lab

This workshop is offered as part of the DFKI joint project UPLINX, which is a cross-location qualification programme for machine learning with direct practical and application relevance.

At the Berlin location, the Interactive Textiles department focuses on the development and implementation of application-oriented concepts of wearable prototypes, involving human-machine interaction with smart textiles and soft interfaces using methods of interdisciplinary and participatory design research.

The workshop consists of lectures and practical exercises in combination of wearables and machine learning. It includes a full-framed introduction to the latest methods and their applicability to the real-life issues. In this. We are aiming to offer the participants a full-framed knowledge base about the methods that form the current state of the art and give them the possibility to understand their application through practical exercises. Based on this, the participants will work on an Interdisciplinary Quick and Dirty Prototyping with different materials and techniques. The results will be presented at a final get together.

The course is aimed at international students from technical and design studies. The course is free of charge. Students need to apply through the website and send a short motivational statement and a CV until June 2nd. Afterwards there will be a selection of 15 participants.
