CSRI is a non-governmental, non-profit research organisation that specialises in the highly interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Systems. The Institute carries a unique expertise in this field, which is related to bridging the gap between language, perception and action for biology inspired intelligent technology. Its core activities comprise theoretical, experimental and computational research and development for exploration and modelling of fundamental mechanisms in human cognition. 
  • to develop cognitive systems with human-level intelligence for addressing societal needs and improving the quality of life.
  • Develop human-centric and biology inspired intelligent technology, for the automation of a wide range of processes and tasks
  • Establish highly interdisciplinary research teams(comprising Computer Science, Computational Linguistics, Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology), with integrated competencies and expertise, in order to leverage digital data and processes
  • Bring science to society by contributing to the transfer of new, interdisciplinary knowledge and skills and by communicating its “look forward” insight
  • We promote scientific excellence and integrity
  • We encourage initiative, innovation and creativity
  • We believe in active collaboration, continuous learning and interdisciplinary exploration
  • We actively support  the open-science movement providing our software and data sources freely to the public
Fields of Expertise
We introduce a new theoretical and computational look at language as an active system in multimodal cognition applications. We develop the first suite of embodied language processing tools, and new semantic lexicons that take state of the art research closer to experimental findings on how the human brain works.

We contribute theory, tools and experimental methodologies for exploring and modeling the interaction between Language, Perception and the Motor system. Our work comprises common sense reasoners for visual scene understanding and verbal human-robot interaction, visuomotor parsers based on a sensorimotor generative action grammar, and large-scale semantic memory modules.


We conduct experimental research on the fundamental mechanisms regulating multisensory event and time perception and the role of language in its interaction with such mechanisms. Our experimental research spans a number of topics including the role of action goals and effects in learning new activities, co-speech exploratory acts and object affordances.
