The ability to think, to act, and to communicate (via language) is fundamental principle as well as indicator for human intelligence. The Knowledge and Language Processing Group (WSV) investigates the processes of knowledge and language processing of humans and artificial systems. The investigations comprise empirical work from a cognitive science perspective, formal analyses based on logic and mathematics, and the realisation of systems within the framework of current computer science conceptions.
