6 April 2023, by HCI-UHH
Within the scope of the House of Computing and Data Science, two new projects of our group will be funded.
The first project is entitled "Multimodal modeling of cultural artifacts in digital space”. The PIs are Prof. Dr. Julia Nantke (German Studies) and Prof. Dr. Frank Steinicke (Human-Computer Interaction).
The multimodality, the conceptual incompleteness and the fragmentary character of the Walter Kempowski's "Ortslinien" should be used to work on fundamental questions of the digital modeling of cultural artefacts with regard to their development, representation and research in the interdisciplinary dialogue between humanities and computer science and solutions for the associated scientific ones, conceptual, technical, legal and ethical challenges. The overall project costs are approximately 370.000 EUR.
The second project is entitled "Multimodal Social Signal Processing of Dyadic and Group Interactions in the Metaverse”. The PIs are Prof. Dr. Nale Lehmann-Willenbrock (Psychology), Prof. Dr. Timo Gerkmann (Signal Processing), and Prof. Dr. Frank Steinicke (Human-Computer Interaction).
In the scope of the proposed project, we will analyze and evaluate existing libraries and tools for processing social signals in face-to-face (F2F) situations for their performance in and appropriateness for immersive virtual group meetings. The overall project costs are approximately 669.743 EUR
