Welcome to the Institute of Computational Perception!

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.

Invited Talk about Machine Learning at Vienna's Acoustics Research Institute

This talk by Andres Marafioti will introduce the machine learning-related research done at the Acoustics Research Institute (ARI) in Vienna.

However, since this is not the institute's main topic, the talk will first present more generally the different groups that coincide at the ARI. Naturally, a central topic of research is Acoustics and human's perception of sound phenomena (psychoacoustics), where ARI's researchers have not yet found a natural integration of machine learning.

By presenting both past works and future ideas to the researchers from the institute of computational perception, we hope to be able to strenghthen the institutes connection and set the foundations for healthy collaborations.
