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, headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Kopp .

We study how A.I. systems can achieve the social and cooperation intelligence that is needed for successful human-agent collaboration and assistance. This research intersects A.I., Cognitive Science, and Human-Agent/Robot Interaction: We study human cooperative and communicative behavior, develop computational cognitive and A.I.-based models of the underlying abilities, and embody those in socially assistive robots, conversational agents or collaborative agents applied and tested in novel human-technology interaction scenarios.
