Bremen research presents itself in the House of Science Bremen
From November 14, Bremen’s House of Science will be showing the exhibition “Schaufenster Wissenschaft – Highlights of Bremen Research”.
Part of the exhibition: the “Virtual Hyperdiver” developed by scienceintermedia on behalf of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology.
The small federal state of Bremen is characterized by a wide range of scientific institutions with a variety of research areas. The exhibition shows the range of current research topics of Bremen’s science institutes. From marine and social sciences to robotics to research for medical applications. The Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology presents an intelligent learning system that allows coral reefs to be mapped much faster than before.
Under the motto “Researching and protecting coral reefs”, the Virtual HyperDiver developed by scienceintermedia invites you to engage in a playful examination of research work in the field of marine microbiology.
In an exciting allocation game, the task is to recognize the various reef inhabitants such as corals, sea cucumbers and algae, only based on their color charts. First, visitors memorize the color spectra through an eyepiece in the learning mode. In the challenge mode, they have to prove how well their allocation ability works under time pressure. The visitors compete against artificial intelligence: anyone who assigns more organisms to the right diagrams in shorter time wins.
Playfully explore how artificial intelligence helps to protect the marine environment.
In the game, visitors learn, in essence, similar to artificial intelligence, to recognize only based on color information.
The technology developed in the research project is presented in a lovingly designed animated film. For those who want to learn more about the project and the research work at Max Planck, an integrated media library offers many exciting insights.
The “Virtual Hyperdiver” was on a traveling exhibition from May to October 2019 aboard the MS Wissenschaft. In 31 cities in Germany and Austria, 85,000 people visited the floating exhibition.
The exhibition “Schaufenster Wissenschaft – Highlights of Bremen Research” can be visited in Bremen’s House of Science until January 27, 2020.
