Short Academic CV

Nina Wenig (Runge) studied Computer Science at the University of Hamburg with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computer Vision. Her Diplom thesis was about Bayesian Networks in temporal reasoning. Since 2011, she works at the Digital Media Lab at the University of Bremen. She worked in different projects focused on Computer Vision, AI and Human Computer Interaction and (semi-)automatic image tagging and data annotation using different sensors and context information. Since the beginning of 2015, she works in BMBF-funded project "Adaptify", trying to use machine learning techniques to adapt exergames to the needs and wishes of the users.
