In the English-language Master of Science Cognitive Systems  course at the University of Ulm, the theoretical and empirical foundations of cognitive skills are presented and models are developed from them.

What is this course about?

In the English-language Master of Science Cognitive Systems course at the University of Ulm, the theoretical and empirical foundations of cognitive skills are presented and models are developed from them. These allow neurobiological mechanisms, theoretically sound concepts and cognitive behavior to be linked and examined in psycho-physical studies and psychological tests. 

These results form the basis for diverse applications, for example for the development of new generations of assistance and companion systems, from intelligent robots or vehicles, intelligent devices and games to intelligent cities, with the aim of supporting and improving human performance.
