Transregional Collaborative Research Centre Transregio 62
The SFB/Transregio 62 "Companion-Technology for Cognitive Technical Systems" is concerned with the systematic research of cognitive capabilities and their realization in technical systems.
The enterprise has the vision of future technical systems being companion systems - technical systems, which completely adjust their functionality to the individual user: They orientate themselves on the user's capabilities, preferences, demands, and current needs and they adapt to the current situation and his current emotional state. In the centre of the research are individuality, adaptiveness, availability, cooperativeness, and reliability.
- The sub project A1 works on planning and reasoning capabilities of companion systems.
- The sub project A2 works on a knowledge architecture for companion systems in particular addressing the representation of uncertain knowledge.
- The sub project Z3 develops an architecture concept as well as an experiment platform for creating and evaluating companion systems.
The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
