As in the last year we spent a couple of days (15.10.2019 till 18.10.2019) on the island Sylt to reflect our past, current, and future research work. Due to a "cold wave" we were a bit reduced this year, but anyhow, we had a very good (and producive) time on this beautiful island. Beside our research plans (reflecting the last year and planning of the next years), we also discussed teaching and outreach topics. Some changes on our webside will be done now and parts of it (e.g. changes in the entry page) are visible already right now.

On Thursday, August 29th, we tested CASSy the first time in real water. With the help of our collegues from the Bundeswehr (special thanks to Dr. Jan Abshagen and Dr. Arne Stoltenberg) we were able to put CASSy into the Baltic sea. After fixing some engine problems, we had your first "cruise" - a short trip from Kiel to Mönkeberg and back. Everything worked fine. Now, we feel confident to go on and put some "science" on CASSy for the next cruise. If you are interested you can find some more details on CASSY (and MISSy) here.

A few weeks ago our new research car (a V class from Daimler) arrived here and now we start to prepare the van for the next level of our research on in-car communication. Since Anton is in his "second live" a very gifted carpenter he started built up the housing for our real-time systems that will be placed in the trunk. Let's see how the car will look like in a few weeks ...

The last two days (Monday and Tuesday, September 16 and 17, 2019), the whole DSS team did a course on TensorFlow and Keras. Since we already have interfaces of TensorFlow to our real-time tool KiRAT, it was time now to extend our knowledge on graphs and the corresponding training of weights, biases, etc. After two days of hard work we booked two escape rooms and solved the "secrets" hidden in the rooms. It was really fun (both the TensorFlow workshop and the escape rooms, of course) and we enjoyed the time. Actually, we can really recommend this combination.

On Friday, August 23re, we had our yearly summer event. The whole event started with our yearly GaS meeting (GaS stands for "Gesellschaft für angewandte Signalverarbeitung"). Afterwards, we had several talks: Robbin Romijnders, for example, presented a nice introduction into gait analysis using IUMs (inertial measurement units). Furthermore, Dr. Florian Schulz from Atlas explained various signal processing approaches that are applied for underwater applications.

After the talks we opened several of our lab doors and presented demonstrations from our underwater and medical projects. The rest of the night was filled with a barbecue and good conversations until the early morning. Hope to see you all also on next years event.

Last Tuesday, we decided to do our three-weekly science slam at the beach in Mönkeberg. Since it was very warm the days before we planned to combine this science slam with a picknick at the beach. However, at this specific day the temperature dropped a lot and we had really strong wind and also some rain. Thus, we did the science slam, but returned afterwards to the faculty and had our picknick there. Anyhow, it was fun to have another outside sience slam as you can see at the picture.
