BBDC @ Cognitive Systems Lab

Willkommen bei der Bremen Big Data Challenge des Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL) of the University of Bremen! Since our first BBDC in 2016, we have continuously developed the BBDC. Initially intended exclusively for students, there are now dedicated tracks for pupils (Pupil track) as well as scientific staff and sponsors (professional track).

The Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL, AG Prof. Tanja Schultz) deals with human-centered technologies and applications based on biosignals, such as the acquisition, recognition and interpretation of language, muscle and brain activities. More information: CSL.

The BBDC is organized by the entire team. Contact persons and responsible are:

  1. Tanja Schultz (Head)
  2. Yale Hartmann (Coordination and Implementation)
  3. Marvin Borsdorf and Dashanka De Silva (Student- und Professional-Track)
  4. Hui Liu (Pupil-Track)

There is something for everyone at BBDC and we are really looking forward to your participation!
