Welcome

Welcome to the MaD Lab!

The researchers in the Machine Learning and Data Analytics (MaD) lab conduct theoretical and applied research for wearable computing systems and machine learning algorithms for engineering applications at the intersection of sports and health care. Our motivation is generating a positive impact on human wellbeing, be it through increasing performance, maintaining health, improving rehabilitation, or monitoring disease.

 

Home of the Innovation Lab

The MaD Lab is the home of the Innovation Lab for Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing, where students develop innovative prototypes with industry partners. Application phase for next winter term starting at September 6th via StudOn!

 

We are happy to announce that our paper entitled "System Design for a Data-Driven and Explainable Customer Sentiment Monitor Using IoT and Enterprise Data" is now published on IEEE Access. This publication is a result of a great collaboration between our MaD Lab at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and Siemens ...

Last week, Robert Richer presented our research on "Assessing the Influence of the Inner Clock on the Cortisol Awakening Response and Pre-Awakening Movement" at the 2021 IEEE Biomedical and Health Informatics Conference. In this work, we investigated the role of the inner clock in triggering the awa...

Marlies Nitschke presented this week at the Footwear Biomechanics Symposium 2021 our research on "Prediction of the effect of midsole stiffness and energy return using trajectory optimisation". This research origins from a fantastic cooperation between adidas and the FAU. This work is extending our ...

Johannes joined the Lab in June 2021. He obtained a Master's degree in Computer Science at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) with a focus on pattern recognition, database systems, and distributed systems. Previously, he studied European Economic Studies at Otto-Friedrich Uni...

Kai studied physics at the university of Erlangen-Nuremberg with a special interest in theoretical physics. While in his Bachelor studies, he was involved in research about the fundamental structure of spacetime, he turned to more applied semiconductor optics in his Master’s work at the Max Planck I...
