Computational Mechanisms of Nonverbal Communication

There is a PhD position available at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour for the project "The meaning of movements: A computational model of nonverbal communication", funded by a DCC-PhD grant.

As a PhD student in this project you will study the cognitive computational bases of human non-verbal communication. You will test the computational necessity and sufficiency of several basic cognitive abilities for effective human communication. You will formalize these abilities in a computer program that engages humans in an open-ended (nonverbal and non-linguistic) communicative game.
The project has both scientific and technological aims.
