Welcome to the Cognitive Systems Lab!
At the Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL) we focus on human-centered technologies and applications based on biosignals, i.e. capturing, recognizing, and interpreting signals such as speech, muscle, and brain activity.
In the area of speech processing we perform research on algorithms and tools to rapidly adapt speech and language processing systems to new domains and languages.
Furthermore, we investigate the interpretation of biosignals for the purpose of intuitive and efficient human-machine interfaces. Currently we develop a variety of interfaces and applications based on electromyographic, electroencephalic, and biomechanic signals.
Here you find announcements for current talks or events at the CSL. Also have a look at the Chronology.
Maybe you've heard about us in a newspaper or on television? Our Press Echo gives an overview of what the press has said about us.
2012/1/17: KIT im Rathaus - CSL presents itself
17.1.2012: KIT im Rathaus - CSL presents itself
On January 17, 2012, the KIT Focus "Anthropomatics and Robotics" presents itself to the public. As part of the events series "KIT im Rathaus", the focus presents its research on human-centered, individual technical systems. Prof. Schultz, head of Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL), will talk about "Silent Communication", which the CSL has been suuucessfully investigating for several years.
The event starts at 6.30 pm. Detailed information can be found on the ZAK pages.
2011/2/28: CSL participates in AAAS meeting
From February 18, 2011 till February 20, 2011, the annual AAAS fair took place in Washington, D.C. The AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) is the world's largest scientific society. During the fair, Matthias Janke and Michael Wand represented KIT and Cognitive Systems Lab at the joint booth of the universities of Baden-Württemberg, showcasing their newest silent speech recognition system.
The participation was a great success and drew much interest from the media.
2011/01/29: pluX Wireless Biosignals Award
Christoph Amma, Dirk Gehrig and Tanja Schultz have received the PLUX Wireless Biosignals Award for their paper "Airwriting Recognition using Wearable Motion Sensors". The award was presented by Prof. Hugo Gamboa, CEO of PLUX, on International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies (BIOSTEC 2011).
