Institute for Cognitive Systems

The Institute for Cognitive Systems deals with the fundamental understanding and creation of cognitive systems.

As our research interests fall in line with the notion of "Understanding through Creating", three essential aspects motivate our approach [Cheng et. al. 2007; Cheng 2014]:

  • In Engineering - Engineers can gain a great deal of understanding through the studies of biological systems, which can provide guiding principles for developing sophisticated and robust artificial systems;
  • Scientifically - Building of a human-like machine and the reproduction of human-like behaviours can in turn teach us more about how humans deal with the world, and the plausible mechanisms involved.
  • For society - In turn we will gain genuine knowledge toward the development of systems that can better serve our society.
