Autonomous robots need the ability to perceive and model their environment and to make appropriate decisions in complex situations on their own. The complexity results from the high-dimensional perceptions, the large number of possible actions and the uncertainty about the state of the world. Probabilistic approaches offer ways for addressing these problems since they allow for explicitly modeling noise, for making decisions under uncertainty, and thus for acting robustly. In this talk, I will present recent approaches for solving different problems in the context of robot navigation and will point out challenges to address in order to build more flexible systems. This includes techniques for building maps of the environment and for relating built models with existing information sources. These are important capabilities for robots to robustly navigate in dynamic environments and crowded city scenes

There will always be several events taking place at the same time during the Kultursymposium. No one can attend everything. For that reason, a correspondent will compile the most important insights and ideas of every event in three sentences each in plenary at the end, thus making them available to all. This way, the results will be safeguarded, structured and disseminated, thus pushing forward the networked dialogue worldwide.
Sharing is the key concept of Web 2.0 Whether it’s your status on Facebook, your holiday photo on Instagram or a tweet on Twitter, sharing is the basic activity of all users of social media. In this context, in recent years a new understanding of sharing has emerged. When, however, did “sharing” became a term dominating the social networks? How important is sharing in this context and what impact does the share button have on the way we communicate? Why is it that we now share more and more personal information online with the whole world? Nicholas A. John will talk about sharing on social networks and the impact of this phenomenon on our view of community.

The user experience design discipline is stagnating at a dangerous time. Its core mindsets, methods, and tools have been successful over the last decade, but are becoming poorly suited to the challenges of 2015 and beyond.

Stochastic two-player games on directed graphs are widely used for modeling and analysis of discrete systems operating in an unknown (adversarial) environment. Possible configurations of a system and its environment are represented as vertices, and the transitions correspond to actions of the system, its environment, or "nature". A run of the system then corresponds to an infinite path in the graph. Thus, a system and its environment can be seen as two players with antagonistic objectives, where one player (the system) aims at maximizing the probability of "good" runs, while the other player (the environment) aims at the opposite. In many cases, there exists an equilibrium value of this probability, but optimal strategies for both players may not exist. We introduce basic concepts and algorithmic questions studied in this area, and we mention some long-standing open problems. Then, we mention selected recent results.
