Institute for Information and Media, Language and Culture
The Institute for Information and Media, Language and Culture consists of 9 professors in domains including media informatics, information science, media studies, linguistics and cultural studies and provides an interdisciplinary basis for performing research in diverse aspects of information behaviour, which represents the overarching research focus of our institute.
A core theme of the Institute’s research and teaching interest centres broadly around the use and processing of information in the digital age. Of particular interest in this respect is the interface between the user and an information system.
Some current application domains include lifestyle decision making (e.g. food and exercise choices), pedestrian navigation, search and personal information management, backed up more broadly with a track record in dialogue-based interactions that combine knowledge acquisition, natural language processing and information retrieval. With the establishment of the new Faculty of Informatics and Data Science we are now rooted in two faculties offering a bridge between science and humanities in research and teaching.
