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

How does the social mind work? How can cognitive systems become socially adept interaction partners? We explore computational accounts of the needed behavioral and cognitive skills. Those are realized in interactive systems like agent-based interfaces, virtual humans or robots, and applied in novel scenarios of human-machine assistance and cooperation.

Our current research projects focus on
  • Cognitive mechanisms of multimodal communication (speech, gesture)
  • Bayesian models of prediction and adaptation in dialogue
  • Mental simulation and situated language understanding
  • Incremental processing in integrated conversational systems
  • Applications like virtual assistants or tutoring systems
