Welcome to the Social Cognitive Systems Group

Research group at the Faculty of Technology and the Center for Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) at Bielefeld University.

We investigate how cognitive systems can be made socially intelligent and interactive so as to enable successful human-machine assistance and cooperation. To that end we study human communication and cooperation, develop AI-based and cognitively inspired methods to imbue artificial agents with the underlying abilities, and test those in novel human-technology interaction scenarios. Our research thus intersects A.I., Cognitive Science, and Human-Agent/Robot Interaction.
