Interactive & Cognitive Systems

The Interactive and Cognitive Systems (ICS) group studies natural and designs artificial cognitive systems, researches their relationships and develops methods that enable interactions between them. The group's research is at the interface between cognitive science, machine learning and human-machine interaction. The applications of the developed solutions extend over a wide field of multimedia technology and augmented reality, through medicine to agriculture and industrial production.
