TRAINCREASE - From Social Interaction to Abstract Concepts and Words: Towards Human-Centered Technology Development

About the project

With smart robotics already playing a role in our daily lives, it is important to consider the design of mixed human–computer systems or human–machine interactions. However, some ambitious tasks such as the attempt to translate abstract concepts into computing systems rely on deep interdisciplinary convergence. The EU-funded TRAINCREASE project will promote the interdisciplinary research in this emerging field, boosting understanding and use of abstract concepts and words in human interaction and their application to human–machine collaboration. The project will initiate a twinning collaboration that will improve the R&I potential of the University of Warsaw (UW) through the cooperation with the University of Manchester, the Sapienza University of Rome and Aarhus University. Joint activities will result in increased research skills and enhanced UW reputation and visibility.

The TRAINCREASE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952324.
