Welcome to the Social Cognitive Systems group, a research group in CITEC and a work group in the Faculty of Technology.

Note that we've changed our name recently. Our former name was Sociable Agents Group.

We explore how (human or artificial) cognitive systems become socially intelligent interaction partners. We study the behavioral and cognitive mechanisms that shape the human ability for social interaction, and we try to model them in robots, virtual humans, avatars or other interactive systems to enable novel human-machine interaction scenarios. For more details, please check out our research projects.
