Minds, Media, Machines is an interdisciplinary network of researchers at University Bremen and collaborations with other internal and external institutions in Germany. Researchers in these institutions work closely together to enhance our understanding of intelligence, cognition in autonomous agents and teams of agents in the context of mediatized worlds. The insights are then transferred into a new generation of social, computer-based, and cyber-physical systems that make a substantial contribution to the welfare of our society, for example via embodied intelligent systems that are tailored to the users' needs, co-age and support them over their entire lives while keeping the users in full control of their personal data.
Towards this aim, scientists in this High-Profile Area investigate human and machine knowledge representation, natural, formal and technical information processing, as well as secure transmission of information and computer-mediated communication. The High-Profile Area is thus based on three pillars: Minds, Media and Machines.
