Centre for Cognitive Science at TU Darmstadt

The Centre for Cognitive Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt unites faculty members across multiple disciplines, who joined forces in the scientific study of adaptive, intelligent behavior in humans and machines. The combined expertise in human sciences and computer science supplemented by a shared language based on computational methodologies is setting the scene for Cognitive Science @ TU Darmstadt. Thus, our expertise includes:

  • the computational study of human perception, cognition, and behavior by members of the Centre, who successfully employ machine learning and AI in the fields of psychology, movement science, and neurobiology, and
  • basic research developing computational and algorithmic solutions to challenging AI and machine learning problems, as being one of the preeminent research universities in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics in Germany and Europe.

The Core Members form our specific scientific approach and turn the Centre for Cognitive Science into a highly attractive research environment for computational cognitive science and for developing cognitive systems. See Members to get as well an impression on the interdisciplinary of the supporting groups and departments.

    5. rmn² lecture – 11 Feb 2019

    Kristian Kersting – Die automatische Datenanalyse: Mensch und Maschine

    Automated data analysis: the human and the machine

    The talk will sketch a specific view on data sciences. It will align human and machine capabilities more closely by combining abstract programming languages and databases with methods of statistical learning, optimization, and deep learning.

    The talk will be held in German. Further information only available in German as well.
