Call for Bachelor and Master theses:

I am always looking for good and committed students. So just drop me a message if you are interested in writing a Bachelor or Master thesis about Augmented Reality, Intelligence Augmentation or Privacy-related topics. 
I offer topics which have to be investigated with quantitative, qualitative as well as theoretical-based methodologies (e.g. systematic literature reviews).
