The research program is structured into 12 doctoral projects. These aim at tightly linking the four fundamental pillars of cognitive computing – perception, planning & reasoning, learning, and interaction. Application domains include service robotics, Industry 4.0, decentralized logistics and adaptive process management systems. The doctoral projects will set individual priorities to the four fundamental pillars on one hand and the respective application domains on the other.

The table explicates the allocation of the doctoral projects (P1 – P12) to the involved Universities (HSU, UUlm), the responsible supervisors (a), the tandem partner (b) and the experts advisors (c). Furthermore, the methodical focus and the application domain are illustrated.
