I have recently moved from Cologne to Bremen (yes, I do plan to stay in Germany for the next few years – I am Germanized) and I have been exploring what the city has to offer – which is actually a lot! I heard about the House of Science and their regular Science Saturday Matinees and I thought it would be a nice place to learn new things and practice Sketchnotes in German (I will be writing more about Sketchnotes in my next post). Last Saturday the speaker was Prof. Dr. Rolf Drechsler with the title: “Experience the world of tomorrow and understand today’s – playful and with humor” (“Die Welt von Morgen erfahren und die heutige verstehen – spielerisch und mit humor”). Here are my notes on the talk. I hope you enjoy them and understand what was all about:
Besides being a professor at the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Bremen and the head of the Cyber-Physical Systems department at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Prof. Dr. Rolf Drechsler is also a very good science communicator. Not only can he explain complex topics in an understandable and funny way, he is also the creator, along with Dr. Jannis Stoppe, of the webcomics Noerdman (only in German). Noerdman talks about Technology, Nerds and the North (of Germany) and is worth following. It makes you think, smile and laugh!
