In the Language and Perception research group we are looking at formal and distributional models (and anything in between) of language used by situated agents interacting with each other and with the physical world around them through action and perception.
We investigate areas such representations of meaning in computational approaches to language, action, and perception, for example of spatial descriptions, generations and interpretation of scene description, multi-modal communication, situated dialogue systems, and other.
The group runs a bi-weekly reading-group and offers two standing PhD courses:
- Language, Action, and Perception
- Representation of Meaning
In 2018 we also organized (together with the Dialogue Research Group) Workshop on Dialogue and Perception.
Members of the Group:
Simon Dobnik (group leader)
