Computational Perception and Cognition Group

The Computational Perception and Cognition Group combines methods from computer science, neuroscience and cognitive science to explain and model how perception and cognition are realized in human and machine.

Research in computational neuroscience, cognitive computing and computer vision, ranges from theory to experiments to applications, accelerating the rate at which discoveries are made by solving problems through a multi-disciplinary way of thinking. Science and technology is at the threshold of paradigm-shifting discoveries. However, an obstacle remains: as technology grows exponentially, our understanding of the human mind does not. We are approaching an era in which the benefits of a highly technologized society won’t be fully realized unless we are able to understand how humans encode, process, retain, predict and imagine.
