Our Research

The Leibniz Lab for Relational Communication Research is entering new territory with its interdisciplinary research: To gain a better understanding of communication expertise from the complementary fields of speech and language science / therapy and computer / information science are combined. Innovative technology is being developed which analyzes human communication from a micro-perspective (micro-sequence analysis of dyadic communication) and macro-perspective (elicitation of language and communicative interaction mass data). The technology is applied in our lab as well as in-vivo in the field. Our basic and applied research concerning communication development, communication impairments, optimizing learning environment will render relevant results for both disciplines: To support people with communicative needs and to advance neuronal networks and machine learning.

OUR VISION

  • Basic research at the interface of human and digital communication: Its relational choreography
  • Applied research supporting people with communicative impairment of all ages.
  • Interdisciplinary development of innovative research technology and tools (e.g. digitalizing language and communication research
  • Initiating interdisciplinary discourse between special needs and computer science
  • Constructing a model of communication which integrates aspects of human science and informationtechnology
