Cognitive Interaction Technology- Some Approaches from the Bielefeld Cluster of Excellence
Helge Ritter - Cluster of Excellence CITEC & Faculty of Technology
Universitat Bielefeld


The first part of the talk will give an overview of the research topic, the main objectives, and the structure of the Bielefeld Cluster of Excellence on Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC). The second part will focus on selected examples, illuminating different aspects of cognitive interaction and technology. We will in particular focus on the topic of "Manual Intelligence", i.e., the analysis of the mechanisms that need to be integrated to enable our manual skills and the cognitive abilities that are associated with them. We will point out how this is deeply connected with important aspects of general cognition, why it may play the role of a "rosetta stone" for a better understanding of cognitive abilities, and what can be gained from it in order to realize cognitive interaction for embodied technical systems, such as robots
