Was ich noch so gefunden habe: eine Auswahl


  • ETH Life Agenten auf Wanderschaft. Zwei ETH-Doktoranden haben ein neues Computer-Programm zur Tourismusf�rderung entwickelt. Sie wollen herausfinden, unter welchen Bedingungen Bergregionen auch im Sommer attraktive Ferienorte darstellen. Daf�r lassen sie Cyber-Touristen durch virtuelle Landschaften wandern.

  • SAC Wissenschaft und Bergwelt: Virtuelle Bergwanderer. Mithilfe eines Computermodells studiert man am Institut f�r Compu- tational Science der ETH Z�rich das Verhalten von virtuellen Bergwande- rern, so genannten �Agenten�. Erste Ergebnisse dieser Simulationen zei- gen, dass bereits geringe lokale Ver- �nderungen sich erstaunlich stark auf das Verhalten dieser Gruppen auswirken.

  • The Economist Virtual tourists are helping the Swiss to plan their landscape. DO COWS improve the view? That is a question which interests the Swiss government, given that it subsidises farmers heavily to graze their cows in the mountains. One justification for the subsidy is that cows eat young trees, and fewer trees mean better vistas of the sort beloved by tourists. But just how much do cows improve the view and where do they provide most value for money?

  • Slashdot Virtual Tourists in the Swiss Alps. Farmers in Switzerland receive money from their government for letting their cows eat young trees in the Alps. But why? Because this is improving the mountain views for tourists who might return year after year and spend their cash in the country. As the Swiss government wants to wisely spend its money, it is using a computer model of the mountains populated by virtual tourists ...

  • swissinfo Virtual humans show way forward for tourism. Scientists in Zurich have developed a computer programme that could help preserve Switzerland.s alpine landscape while at the same time promoting tourism. The Federal Institute of Technology programme shows planners what is likely to attract or deter tourists.

  • NZZ Am Sonntag Virtuelle Alpen-Touristen Die Soziophuysik simuliert Massenpaniken, Verkehrstaus und das Verhalten von Bergwanderern.
