Forschung / Research

    Our research has a strong interdisciplinary focus. Coming from computer science, we are interested in the implementation of interactive intelligent systems, including intelligent virtual agents, social robots and interactive virtual environments. Since these systems are built for intuitive use by human users, our research makes use of methods and findings from social psychology, the cognitive sciences and human-computer interaction. Thereby diversity factors such as gender, age or cultural background are taken into account during the development as well as the evaluation of our prototypes.
