Participate in an online game experiment at Aalto University on August 15th

The aim of the vast research project is to create a simulator to anticipate human behavior in socioeconomic crises or to develop avatars of artificial intelligence.
Universities participating in IBSEN.

Department of Computer Science is participating in IBSEN, a project funded by Horizon 2020, the biggest EU Research and Innovation Programme. The goal of the IBSEN project is to understand the behavior of people on an individual level, especially when they are connected by new technologies like mobile telephones or social networks.

With this information, researchers will be able to create a simulator of human behavior. This technology could be applied to anticipate behavior in socioeconomic crises, create more human-like robots or develop avatars of artificial intelligence which are almost indistinguishable from those that represent people.

Participate in IBSEN

Volunteers are needed for an online game experiment at Aalto University on August 15th, 2018. The volunteers will participate in different trials of an online game to be played on desktop computers. The estimated time for the whole experiment is around 4 hours beginning at 4 pm.

Volunteers will receive 2 movie ticket for attendance.

To join, send an email to [email protected], with the subject line: "Want to join", and you will be contacted before the experiment.

Volunteers will be briefed before the game.

Constructive interaction a key factor in remote teams seeking solutions to societal problems

When remote teams work to solve challenging and complicated problems, the abilities of individuals to verbalise thoughts and to create verbal contact with the thoughts of others get special emphasis. Teams that participate equally built interface surfaces between each other with the help of contemplative statements and open questions.

Collaboration between Aalto University and ABB leads to pioneering innovations in sustainable development

We are developing world-class technologies together as the shipping sector is shifting to using electronic, autonomous and emission-free solutions. We collaborate closely also in technologies related to digital twins for electric drives and 5G solutions for power grids. The driver behind the development is electrification accelerated by the energy transition.
