Dr. Daniel Sonntag
German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, DFKI
Researcher and Research Fellow
Editor-in-Chief of the German Journal of Artificial Intelligence
Editor-in-Chief of Cognitive Technologies
research interests include intelligent user interfaces, natural
language processing, information retrieval and mining, dialogue
systems, common-sense modelling, and semantic (explainable)
machine learning methods for cognitive computing and improved
This includes multimodal multisensor interfaces for medical and health systems in particular, common-sense and (interactive) machine learning methods for human computer interfaces, knowledge discovery, information extraction, and cognitive modelling with ontologies.
He has published over 130 scientific articles, and has been recipient of the German High Tech Champion Award in 2011 and the AAAI Recognition and IAAI Deployed Application Award in 2013. As a principal investigator he leads both national and European projects from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, and Horizon 2020.
His recent application of multimodal multisensor interfaces is now having industrial impact, for example SmartWeb's multimodal interaction design and technical infrastructure by Apple (Siri).
