Cognitive Computing

The Cognitive Computing Group studies cognitive and computational aspects of information-technology-supported interactions between information objects and environments, physical objects and environments, and persons and social environments. Basic research is mixed with applied research.

The group has competence in computing science and cognitive science, including areas such as human–computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, interaction design, artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, robotics, new media, computer-mediated communication, computer-supported learning, and information search.

The research is currently focused on cognitive tools (support for knowledge work), bridging the cognitive gaps between physical, informational and social environments, mobile interaction, and robot learning.

Members of the Cognitive Computing Group work in collaboration locally with the Department of Informatics, the Department of Psychology, the Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine, the Department of Community Medicine and Rehabilitation, the Department of Integrative Medical Biology, Umeå Center for Functional Brain Imaging, UCIT (Umeå Center for Interaction Technology), ProcessIT Innovations, and Swedish Brain Power.
