Welcome to the Social Cognitive Systems Group

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

We do research and teaching in computational Cognitive Science, A.I. and Human-Machine/Robot Interaction. Our goal is to imbue interactive systems such as assistive robots or virtual agents with the "Artificial Social Intelligence" that is needed for human-aware cooperative interaction in assisted living, education, health, or work domains. To that end we explore questions like: How can cognitive systems understand and cooperate with other agents? How can they learn to communicate efficiently and adaptively in dynamic interaction? How do humans perceive and interact with them?
