We are a (still) young and growing institute with innovative projects and motivated young researchers. The focus of our research and teaching is on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
We develop and study computational models and algorithms that permit computers to perceive and 'understand' aspects of the external world, where we interpret 'perception' in the widest sense of the word, as the extraction of useful high-level information and knowledge from complex, possibly low-level data (audio, video, images, sensor data, texts, or even the Internet).
This requires fundamental and applied research on AI, machine learning, pattern recognition, text / data / social media mining, signal processing, statistical data modeling and classification.
Our current research has a particular focus on intelligent audio and music processing. Further research topics include biometrics, cryptography, personalization, and recommender systems.
Our goal is to offer state-of-the-art research and teaching in this area, and to provide a teaching environment that permits students to get involved in real research projects as early as possible.
If you want to visit us: we have offices both in Linz and in Vienna.
This study was a cooperation between JKU´s Institute of Computational Perception, TU Graz, Know-Center GmbH, University of Innsbruck and Utrecht University.
