As part of the practical field training “Physiogeographische Geodatenerfassung” this week, a group of students acquired the gravel bar and terrace at an oxbow of the old Neckar river near Ilvesheim (49°28′36″ N 8°34′34″ E) with geophysical and 3D surveying techniques.
In small groups, the students learned a different surveying strategy and processing the acquired data [...]

Can the human brain be described as a kind of machine – and, by extension, human memory as a time machine? What do software and the human mind have in common, and what are the ethical dilemmas involved in the use of artificial intelligence (AI)? Neurobiologist Hannah Monyer and geoinformatics expert Bernhard Höfle present talking [...]
