OFAI, Austria



Brigitte Krenn is Deputy Director of the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI). Her general research interest lies in understanding and computationally modelling human communication and interaction capabilities. Her work centers around two pillars: The one is core language technology combining linguistic analysis with state-of-the-art deep learning and data science based approaches to text processing, including language and speech understanding, text summarization, domain-specific natural language processing. The other pillar is multi-modal communicative interaction, including modelling the behaviour of artificial agents (virtual agents, social robots and cobots), multimodal dialogue, dialogue and memory, language learning and language understanding for robots inspired by human cognition research.
