DSS Outreach News

On Thursday, August 15th, we participated in the "Kiel Science Walk" (Wissenschaftssapziergang) that is organized by the city of Kiel. About 20 interested people visited us. First Dr. Frank Paul in his role as the manager of our institution gave a short talk about current facts and the history of our faculty. Afterwards, our real-time time system KiRAT as well as the some (theoretical) basics of our research projects were explained. The main part of this event were then five lab demonstrations that were presented by virutally all of our PhD students. We hope that the "science walkers" enjoyed their visit in our labs. Further details can be found here.

On Thuesday, June 25th, about 30 pupils from the Isarnwohld school in Gettorf visited us. First a couple of Bachelor students shared their experiences about the "transition" from school to university and make some common remarks on the "life of studnets". Thanks again to the students for their help here. Afterwards we had several demonstrations ranging from medical applications over automotive to underwater signal processing. We hope that the pupil enjoyed their visit in our labs. Some more details about this event can be found here.

The DSS team was invited to participate in the last of the "Saturday Morning Physics" (SMP) events in 2018. On December 8th, a Saturday of course, Thorben Kaak, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch gave a talk on underwater signal processing. Pupils from all around Schleswig-Holstein were quite interested, especially in the basics of SONAR systems.

On Friday, 16th of December the DSS team took part in the "Night of the Profs 2018". We got one of the "late-night" slots, meaning that our contribution started at 23 h. Our topic was on speech communication in "unusual" environments. If course, our attempts to improve speech communication in cars was presented, but also some of our student projects, such as the under water masks for the commucation among divers or swimmers. We presented the problems that one faces when building systems to support communication in such environmens. Since we are engineers, also appropriate solutions as well as examples of real systems were shown.  All in all, our contribution was not too bad since at the end of the talk (which was close to midnight), most (hopefully all) of the listeners were still awake.

At the beginning of the talk one of the external microphones did not work as expected - which was the reason for sharing microphones with the people from the Fachschaft (see picture on the left).

TensorFlow and Escape Rooms

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 ...
