About Us

Launched in 2023, the CoAI Joint Research Center brings together researchers from the universities of Bielefeld, Bremen, and Paderborn. It unites the expertise and experience of the three universities in cognitive interaction technology (at the CITEC Center in Bielefeld), cognition-enabled robotics (including the Everyday Activities Science and Engineering (EASE) Collaborative Research Center in Bremen), and socially embedded intelligent systems (including the Constructing Explainability Collaborative Research Center in Paderborn). Fusing human-informed research on AI, on meaningful interaction between humans and AI systems, and on AI capable of self-aware learning, the CoAI JRC will be a strong hub for AI featuring human-centered real-world agency in Germany.
