Brigitte Krenn is Deputy Director of the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI). She has worked in natural language processing and AI since 1990. Her overall research interest lies in understanding and computationally modelling human language capability. On the one hand, she focuses on the development and application of core language technology combining linguistic analysis with state-of-the-art deep learning and data science based approaches to text and speech processing. On the other hand, she works on understanding and modelling multi-modal behaviour of communicating agents (humans and artificial agents), including language learning and understanding on robots inspired by results from research on human cognition.She was faculty staff at the Computational Linguistics Department of Saarland University Saarbrücken, Germany, scientific head of the Research Studios Austra — Studio Smart Agent Technologies and member of Seibersdorf Research, Austria.She is board member of the Austrian Society for Artificial Intelligence (ASAI) where she initiated the Working Group on Natural Language Processing.
