Towards fast adaptive simulation with Isogeometric Analysis

Isogeometric Analysis is a young competitor to the Finite Element Method for the solution of partial differential equations which promises interoperability with CAD systems. We discuss recent work on fast, adaptive solution techniques for IGA..

When your virtual trainer knows a lot about your brain …

Intelligent tutor systems in mobile devices make learning ubiquitous, autonomous, and at low cost. In this talk, I describe why neuroscientific knowledge has to ground the “construction” of virtual trainers and what the benefits for users are.
