CITEC renews its profile and organizational structure

Veröffentlicht am 19. Juli 2023

Now CITEC has taken on a new research profile and organizational structure. The responsibility of coordinating CITEC has been handed over to Philipp Cimiano, as speaker, and Stefan Kopp, as co-speaker. Holding on to CITEC’s established interdisciplinary infrastructure and research values, they aim to adapt to the advances of the rapidly growing field of Artificial Intelligence and the resulting societal impacts. CITEC’s overarching research topic ‘Human-Aware Cognitive Systems in Open Worlds’ is approached through interdisciplinary collaboration and projects in five core research areas, namely, ‘Learning in Interaction’, ‘Multimodal Cognition and Communication’, ‘Socially Intelligent Agents’, ‘Trustworthy and Sustainable AI’ and ‘Embodied Cooperative Systems’.

Joint Research Centre Explores Key Issue for the Future Co-constructive Artificial Intelligence

Veröffentlicht am 10. Juli 2023
Future artificial intelligence (AI) systems, and AI-based robots in particular, must be able to understand and gauge not only their own actions, but also those of others. From now on, researchers from the universities of Bielefeld, Bremen, and Paderborn are permanently consolidating their research in this area at a cross-location centre. At the Joint Research Center on Cooperative and Cognition-enabled AI (CoAI JRC), the expertise of the three strong research partners will make new ways of interaction and learning possible between humans and machines. Unprecedented in Germany, the centre for co-constructive AI is also intended to contribute to the training of the next generation of research and technology leaders who will represent a new perspective on AI in science and society. With this in mind, the CoAI JRC is planning a joint curriculum to inspire and empower young researchers in this field.[Weiterlesen]

New subproject launched in TTR 318 "Constructing Explanability" on social signals of understanding

Veröffentlicht am 25. Januar 2023

When people explain something to each other, they often observe the other person's signals of incomprehension in order to adapt their explanation accordingly. In a new subproject of the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre "Constructing Explanability" (TRR 318), scientists want to make this process possible for machines as well. But the approach has its pitfalls when it comes to the interaction between man and machine.
