Project Description

Social behaviour is something that is very normal to us humans, but it is less obvious and less easy when making a product or system, but very valuable. Intelligence established by learning algorithms can support a meaningful interaction in social, interactive and intelligent products. The goal of the elective was to gain awareness in the field of learning algorithms and gain some experience in using them. Afterwards, one of these algorithms was implemented in a social concept which embodies a meaningful social interaction.

This final concept, Whoozle, is a pillow-like alarm clock which has the ability to make physical movements. It integrates the movements people make during the different sleep phases, to simulate a partner waking up next to you.
