The DAAD-funded CASY Project invites applications for several
PhD studentships in the area of Cognitive Assistive Systems.

The programme “Cognitive Assistive Systems (CASY)” will contribute to the
focus on a next generation of human-centred systems for human-robot
collaboration. A central need of these systems is a high level of 
learning,  and increased adaptivity to be able to act more natural under
uncertain conditions. To address this need, research will focus on neural
robotics, cognitively  motivated multi-modal integration and learning
human-robot interaction. Different modalities from sensors and processed
representational modalities will be combined and evaluated for their use in
assistive systems based on symbolic, statistical, neural or hybrid
