Hi there!

Frederik Wiehr

OBJECTIVE

Some words about me


Hi, I'm Fred. I'm a PhD student in computer science working at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Saarbrücken and the chair of media informatics at Saarland University.

In my research I explore how we can build technology that assists in overcoming physiological and ultimately cognitive restrictions. I do so by trying to extract higher-level information from sensors in the environment and on body worn devices that helps to understand the users’ current activities and ongoing mental processes. I am further investigating systems that take such information into account and enable individual meaningful assistance enhancing learning and improving social interaction.

My research interest lies in the fields of

  • human computer interaction,
  • cognitive psychology and human factors,
  • context and activity recognition,
  • and wearables.

Take a look at my open topics


If you are looking for a Master's or Bachelors thesis topic, please contact me and we can schedule a meeting. I keep the list of open topics updated. However, there will always fresh topics that I have not been listet yet. You're also free to propose your own idea, as it is related to my general research area.

Take a look at my recent projects
