Neurobiologically inspired, multimodal intention recognition for technical communication systems (NIMITEK)
NIMITEK investigates basic principles of the processing of input (speech, mimics, direct modes), knowledge representation and decision making in dialogue situations between biological / human and technical cognitive systems. This is prototypical for the basic problem of modeling intelligent behavior in interaction with a non-transparent and rapidly changing environment. NIMITEK provides a technical demonstrator to study these principles in a dedicated prototypical task, namely solving the game "Towers of Hanoi". In this paper, we will describe the general approach NIMITEK takes to emotional man-machine interactions, and we will present the principles of the demonstrator.
