Summer School on Voice Interaction and Voice Assistants in Health Care ( VIVA2019 )


Review VIVA2019 - Summer School

The event VIVA2019 organised by DRESDEN-concept took place from 21 to 29 September. A unique network of scientists and cultural institutions consisting of the Technische Universität Dresden, HTW Dresden, SLUB Dresden, Technische Sammlungen Dresden and supported by the University Medical Center "Carl Gustav Carus" was the starting point for numerous formats. The series of events was thus very well received by the international and interdisciplinary participants.

The Summer School offered young researchers (Master or PhD) the opportunity to deepen their understanding in the field of language interaction. The participants examined user-centred challenges in an interdisciplinary group (computer science, medical informatics, psychology, medicine, nursing science, law, sociology, economics, electronics, communication sciences, etc.).

A design sprint process finally led all groups to a prototype of a new capability, which was presented in a final public event. The development process is accompanied by modules on social and societal challenges of this technology.
