ICT COST ACTION IC1206 aims to facilitate coordinated interdisciplinary efforts on person de-identification and reversible de-identification in multimedia content by networking relevant European experts and organizations; Funded by EU since 2013.


The Karlsruhe Decision & Design Lab (KD2Lab) is a 40-unit experimental lab fully equipped to capture and process a large variety of biosignals (fNIRS, EEG, EMG, EDA, Motion, Video, Speech) to study human-machine interfaces; Funded by German Research Foundation, Major Research Instrumentation, since 2011.


Myoelectric Array-based Processing of Speech (MAPS) investigates Silent Speech Interfaces (SSI). Silently mouthed speech is captured by measuring articulatory muscle activities. In this project, multi-channel electrode arrays for Electromyography are studied, Funded by German Research Foundation, 2013 – 2015.


This project will leverage Anthropomatic methods and technologies to build „Autarkic Cognitive Technical Systems for Interaction and Validation (ACTIV)“ for the purpose of activating people with dementia diseases individually and independent of the availability of other peoples resources.

Funded by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung gGmbH, 09/2013 – 08/2016.


Within the framework of this project, industrial partners from the orthopedic, medical as well as measurement engineering and scientific partners from informatics, mechanical engineering and sport sciences will jointly develop an active orthosis for local relief of the knee joint, which adapts to the current situation and intention of its users. Funded by the Central Innovation Program SME at the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), 2013-2016.


Technical Assistance for cognitive and social activation of people with dementia diseases“; Implementation and evaluation of a multimodal, individualized, and adaptive Memory-Game on a Tablet-PC. The project is carried out jointly by partners from University Heidelberg and KIT;
Funded by HEiKA,Heidelberg Karlsruhe Research Partnership, NTS Bridge, 2013.


Combining Statistical and Computational Modeling Approaches for User State Prediction” - Collaborative research project between the Section of Experimental and Theoretical Psychology of Heidelberg University, Prof. Joachim Funke and CSL for the development of a cognitive user model as the basis of assistive computer technologies.
Funded by HEiKA, Heidelberg Karlsruhe Research Partnership, NTS Bridge, 2013


The Google Faculty Research Award for Prof. Tanja Schultz and Christoph Amma enables us to leverage off our Airwriting technologies (recognition of handwriting in the air based on inertial sensors attached to the back of the hand) to develop and advance gesture-based man-machine interfaces. Funded by a 81.000 US-Dollar Google Faculty Research Award, Google Inc. 2013.



With the development of the „RLAT – Rapid Language Adaptation Toolkit“, CSL aims at drastically reducing costs and time for the design and training of speech processing systems in unseen language. For this purpose we create and make freely available the interactive web-based tools and methods to enable users to easily build and evaluate all relevant speech processing components, and to iteratively improve end-to-end systems.
