Open Thesis Topics

In this work, your task is to implement a game with a purpose, but also helps in collecting hand-drawn sketches with annotations for machine learning. Your task will be to design and implement a suitable game, and to evaluate it in a user study. This game should integrate game mechanics that fit the purpose of generating/annotating sketches via touch input, stylus, or digital pens. You can also target on integrating interactive machine learning techniques (e.g., they can interactively train a machine learning model which they can use during the game and has an effect on the game).

Focus

The design and implementation of the game mechanics. You should have solid programming skills and, at best, experience with Unity 3D or another game development engine of choice. A user study will be conducted in the context of the game.

How to apply
