MILKI-PSY aims to create AI-supported, data-intensive, multimodal, immersive learning environments for the independent learning of psychomotor skills. This creates a cross-domain approach that makes it possible to record the activities of experts in a multimodal manner and to use these recordings as blueprints for learners. With the help of AI-supported analysis, learning progress is to be supported by automated error detection and automatically generated, individual feedback. This creates holistic, innovative learning environments for learning psychomotor skills, in which personalized, AI-supported learning support enables individual learning processes based on complex data analyzes.



The MILKI-PSY team uses state-of-the-art DevOps tools (Git,
JIRA, Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes, Requirements Bazaar, etc.) on a very
recent cloud computing hardware run by the chair.  Our team needs reinforcements in terms of open source developers, DevOps engineers and UX designers.

  • Decentralized architecture setup and maintenance
  • Update of developer tooling, continuous integration and delivery setup
  • Bugfixing
  • Development of new features in front- and backend, e.g. data proxies
