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 period for upcoming summer term: 16.03.2020 – 21.04.2020 via StudOn!

 

Michael joined the MaD lab in March 2020. He studied computer science and information systems at FAU. His master thesis in the NLP domain covered „label extraction from electrocardiogram free text reads“ and was conducted abroad in collaboration with the Computational Cardiovascular Research Group a...

Teamed up with STABILO and the Fraunhofer IIS in Nuremberg, the MaD Lab is taking part in the Ubicomp 2020 conference with Stabilos Time Series Classification Challenge. What’s the challenge? Stabilo built a sensor-equipped pen that writes on normal paper. The challenge is to build a classifier t...
