About Alice

Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering - ALICE

The ALICE institute of Groningen University, The Netherlands, is involved in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering research.

Mission Statement

The research in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering is inherently interdisciplinary in nature. With Computing Science, an interest in formal modeling is shared, where these models may be symbolic, statistical or hybrid in nature. With Psychology and Biology an interest in natural cognition is shared, where the goal is to describe fundamental qualities of cognition in such an explicit way that computational models of perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral control functions can be constructed. The research program covers four interrelated areas in Artificial Intelligence:

  1. Cognitive Modeling
  2. Multi-Agent Systems
  3. Autonomous Perceptive Systems
  4. Sensory Cognition

All programmes embody mainly fundamental research, but also aim to develop applied aspects of their disciplines. The inspiration of the research is mainly knowledge-driven, but we do encourage applicable, if not applied, research projects for our Ph.D. students.

An important aspect of the research program is its relation to the teaching curriculum in Artificial Intelligence. This teaching programme requires a broad expertise from the staff, and the research programme reflects this.

The ALICE institute has as its main goal to perform research at a high international level, leading to publications in international scientific journals in a lively cooperation between highly qualified researchers.
