Human-like AI

Our internationally recognised academic team conduct leading research and contribute cutting-edge developments in the field of human-like AI.

The human-like AI research theme addresses the following topics:

  • affective computing – the study and development of computing that deliberately incorporates human emotion
  • augmented cognition – a form of human-system interaction that links user and computer via physiological and neurophysiological sensing of the user's mental state
  • computational semantics – the study of how to extract, represent and reason with meaning
  • contextual reasoning – reasoning with and about human context (e.g. environmental, human behaviour, human intentions).
