Institute of Computational Perception, Johannes Kepler University

Linz, Austria


The focus of our research and teaching is on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We develop and study computational models and algorithms that permit computers to perceive and 'understand' aspects of the external world, where we interpret 'perception' in the widest sense of the word, as the extraction of useful high-level information and knowledge from complex, possibly low-level data (audio, video, images, sensor data, texts, or even the Internet). This requires fundamental and applied research on pattern recognition, knowledge extraction, text /data / social media mining, signal processing, statistical data modeling and classification  (
