Researchers from Bielefeld University and Honda Research Institute Europe met for the CINEMENTAS project-kickoff

CINEMENTAS - Cooperative IntelligeNcE MENTal models for Assistive Systems is located at the Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) and embedded in the research environment of the Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC).The newly started Project is funded and carried out in close cooperation with the Honda Research Institute Europe (Offenbach).

CINEMENTAS is focused on the research question how learning by a technical system in interaction with a human can be shaped to remain transparent for the human user. Four PhD students and one Postdoc will closely collaborate within the five CINEMENTAS sub-projects:

  •  Mental-model-guided interactive robot learning (Prof. Dr. Helge Ritter, AG Neuroinformatics)
  •  Mental models for collaborative reinforcement learning (Prof. Dr. Stefan Kopp, AG Cognitive Systems and social Interaction)
  •  Mental models of the validity of adaptive systems (Prof. Dr. Barbara Hammer, AG Machine Learning)
  •  Collaborating on learning to classify (Prof. Dr. David Schlangen, AG Applied Computer Linguistics)
  •  Learning of co-constructed interactive signals in joint tasks (Prof. Dr. Britta Wrede, AG Applied Computer Science)
