Human-centered Cyber-Physical Systems

Language Technology Lab is a part of the research profile Human-centered Cyber-physical Systems in the Faculty of Engineering.

Language plays an important role in in cyber-physical systems as a means for communication between humans and such systems. Thus, it is necessary to better understand how machines can automatically understand language. On the one hand, we need to analyze the structure of the language, e.g. by automatically identifying POS tags. On the other hand, we need to semantically analyze a given statement and to contextualize it given a certain interaction. For this purpose, it is necessary to better understand the role of the language users in a communication process.
