 Central aim of organisation
To perform world-class research in computational perception and intelligent audio/music analysis

 Briefly describe your organisation
The department was founded in 2004 and focuses on computational models and algorithms that permit computers to perceive and understand aspects of the external world, where perception is interpreted in the widest sense of the word, as the extraction of useful high-level information and knowledge from complex, possibly low-level data (audio, video, images, sensor data, texts, databases, or even the Internet). Specifically, its research and teaching focuses on problems like pattern recognition, knowledge extraction, and data and text mining, with methods from fields like signal processing, statistical pattern recognition and classification, machine learning, and generally Artificial and Computational Intelligence. The departments current research has a particular focus on intelligent audio and music processing.
