Modelling of User Behaviour in Dynamic Systems (MoDyS)
The research group develops methods for user modelling in human-machine
systems. The main scope of our research lies on human information
processing and goal-oriented behaviour in dynamically changing
environments with multiple parallel goals. We build computable
models of these processes of different granularity for application
and design. Whenever appropriate,
we conduct psychological experiments to get a sound base of empirical
evidence for the
modelling process. To make the cognitive
modelling process more efficient, we enhance cognitive architectures
and adapt software engineering methods.
Keywords: cognitive modelling, information processing,
