Projects in Demonstrator Lab

Since 2017, many students and researchers have successfully used Demonstrator Lab to develop their ideas to maturity. This has led to the establishment of new companies offering new products and services. We present you an overview of the current participating projects below.

Attention Check

Eye-opening insights Consumers make about 95% of their decisions without conscious awareness. Attention Check objectively maps out their behavior by using biometrics such as eye tracking, skin conductance, and brain activity. In this way we tap into the non-conscious processes that truly underlie human behavior. In addition we run large N (e.g. 1000) online psychological […]

ChloroSpec

Measuring the health of plants

Climecs

CLImatic Manipulation of ECosystem Samples Due to climate change, the world as we knowtoday is rapidly changing. Temperatures are rising, and both rain events and periods of drought become more frequent, intense and longer lasting. These changes are affecting ecosystems and the services they provide (e.g. food production, water storage, nutrient cycling) in unknown ways. […]

COCO Company

Conscious Consumption Company What to do with imperfect food products that retailers won’t buy? COCO Comp identifies overproduced, misprinted, and soon-to-expire items from various producers and manufacturers and connects them directly with offices, clubs, and associations who can acquire these goods for a discounted price.  We partner with local and smaller producers to enhance social […]

DeepEye

Calibration-free webcam eye-tracker based on deep learning DeepEye records eye movements using a regular webcam and cutting-edge AI algorithms. Eye-tracking is widely used to understand how humans process information. This information provides solutions for scientific research, marketing & advertising, building human-computer interfaces, and diagnosing mental disorders. DeepEye is designed to make eye-tracking available to everyone […]

S2S-AI

Climate change is affecting extreme weather – we identify how and when society is at risk Seasonal to sub-seasonal (S2S) predictability could provide societies with valuable information on weather-related risk, allowing decision-makers to initiate early warning action plans and to optimize resource management. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are developing a rigorous data-driven framework that […]

Sonoptic

AI-based, wearable visual aid technology 1 in 30 Europeans suffers from visual impairment, and 75% of them are unemployed. Taking the form of a pair of glasses, Sonoptic is an AI based solution helps the visually impaired at work, at home and in education by providing three key features: Object identification – to help find […]

SPUN – Society for the Protection of Underground Networks

We protect unique underground ecosystems in the face of rapid environmental change Beneath our feet, fungi complex underground networks of that regulate the earth’s climate and ecosystems. These hidden networks power the world’s soil, and act as a huge sink for atmospheric carbon. But these biomes are being rapidly destroyed: fires, pollutions, deforestation are killing […]
