Welcome to the Department of
Computer and Information Science
Cognition is in many different ways grounded in the sensorimotor systems of cognitive agents. Henrik Svensson’s dissertation shows how it is possible to explain higher level cognitive abilities as simulated actions and perceptions, and also introduces a novel hypothesis of the role of dreams, during early childhood, in the development of simulations.
The Åke Svensson research stipend this year goes to Patrick Doherty, professor of Computer Science at Linköping University. Patrick Doherty receives the award for his outstanding contributions to the development of autonomous unmanned aircraft systems.
The paper "Empowering the Creative User: Personalized HTTP-based Adaptive Streaming of Multi-path Nonlinear Video" was given the "Best Paper Award" in the ACM SIGCOMM 2013 workshop on Future Human-Centric Multimedia Networking (FhMN) and will appear in a special issue of ACM Computer Communications Review. It is based on collaborative work with University of Saskatchewan, Canada, and NICTA, Australia.
