Visitors explored how simple sensors and cameras can reproduce and map complicated 3D spaces in a matter of seconds. A satellite from DLR’s Earth observation satellite mission was also part of the exhibition. The data collected on the composition of the earth’s surface has already been used as part of a hackathon.
Another demo showed image generation using the deep learning text-to-image tool Stable Diffusion. The interactive AMELIE object recognition exhibit was particularly exciting for young and old alike. By using data enhancement techniques, it was possible to optimize the detection of objects. Visitors thus actively contributed to the real-time learning of the AMELIE system. The interaction with the AI aroused great curiosity, especially among families and children.
Exhibitions like this are also intended to promote direct dialog between visitors and scientists in order to convey an understanding of AI to a broad audience.
