Language, Interaction, and Robotics
We can analyse and model how agents (humans or machines) interact with each other and the physical world, and design products and services which transform the ways we work, live at home, and care for each other.
NLP is transforming the way humans communicate with each other and with machines. The rapid proliferation of online news, social media and scientific articles has created an exploding demand for NLP systems that enable people to derive critical insights from massive streams of data in many languages.
The underlying aim of the Language, Interaction, and Robotics theme is to devise computational methods which promote our understanding of how agents (humans or machines) interact with each other and the physical world, and to build systems which transform the ways humans interact with each other and with machines. Key research areas include language (written and spoken), vision, graphics, learning, robotics, and motor control.
Relevant research is ongoing in several of our Centres and Institutes:
- Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour
- Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation
- Centre for Speech Technology Research
- UKRI CDT in Natural Language Processing
- EPSRC CDT in Robotics and Autonomous Systems
