Cognitive Computation


Cognitive Computation is a highly interdisciplinary field using methods from artificial intelligence, psychology, and cognitive science to develop computational models to generate, simulate, and understand intelligent processes and to implement them in virtual agents.

We focus on predictive cognitive models for general and individual human reasoning, i.e., we investigate and develop computational models to predict human inferences for a given set of information.

A further line of research investigates the interaction of humans with virtual intelligent agents that can incorporate such cognitive models and demonstrate emotions and intelligent behavior.
