Ambient intelligence (AmI) was once confirmed within the past due Nineties as a contemporary paradigm for digital environments for the time-frame of 2010–2020. AmI is basically an elabo- tion of Mark Weiser’s imaginative and prescient of ubiquitous computing. Weiser used to be aiming at a singular cellular computing infrastructure built-in into the networked atmosphere of individuals. AmI is the assumption of a know-how that may turn into invisibly embedded in our average s- roundings, current every time we want it, enabled by way of easy and easy interplay, attuned to all our senses, adaptive to clients, context-sensitive, and independent. AmI refers to clever digital environments which are delicate and attentive to the presence of individuals. given that its adoption the imaginative and prescient has grown and entirely constructed, bec- ing relatively influential within the improvement of novel rules for info processing and new thoughts for multi-disciplinary fields together with electric engineering, computing device technological know-how, business layout, consumer interfaces, and cognitive sciences. The AmI process - fords a foundation for brand spanking new paradigms of technological innovation inside of a multi-dimensional society. The additional worth of the AmI imaginative and prescient is the truth that the large-scale integration of electronics into the surroundings permits the actors, i. e. , humans and items, to collaborate with their atmosphere in a ordinary degree. this is often without delay regarding the expanding societal call for for conversation and the alternate of information.

Emmy Noether, die Noether-Schule und die moderne Algebra: Zur Geschichte einer kulturellen Bewegung

Emmy Noether und die Mitglieder der Noether-Schule gestalteten wesentlich die kulturelle Bewegung der modernen Algebra, die in den 1920er Jahren die Vorstellungen über Mathematik veränderte und zu einem neuen Verständnis der Mathematik als Strukturwissenschaft führte. In interdisziplinär angelegten Studien verbindet die Autorin biografische Forschungen zu Noether und den Mitgliedern der Noether-Schule mit wissenschaftstheoretischen Untersuchungen mathematischer Texte sowie einer aus dem Konzept der dichten Beschreibung abgeleiteten examine wissenschaftlicher Schulenbildung: Die Entstehung mathematischen Wissens als soziokulturellem Prozess wird sichtbar und auch einer mathematisch nicht ausgebildeten Leserschaft zugänglich.

Below this line the module for the localisation of the present position is shown. This module is fed with data received from WLAN points/T-Mobil and/or other sources for localisation. Also shown is the dynamic data accessibility to the internet. 1 First Results Though the project is still under development some first results can already be demonstrated. With other words: Measuring points have been collected already in several cities in Germany and other countries. All these measured data are stored in the WLAN data base: Already available are measuring points in Nuremberg (Nürnberg) – see fig 1, Düsseldorf and Regensburg.
