Our research and teaching activities are motivated by a significant shift we can see in the future interplay between humans and technology. While technology in the past was mostly regarded as a practical tool, recent developments in Artificial Intelligence as well as in Computing and Mechanics offer a path forward to technology becoming a partner in everyday life. As a partner, such technology will come in many different forms and pysical embodiments (i.e. robots), ranging from smart devices with natural language interfaces to collaborative robotic arms which can physically manipulate their environment. All these approaches share that they may very well help to create a more inclusive society and empower people of various background to live a more selfdetermined life.
All members of our research unit wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
