Research is focused on combining natural language processing elements of embodied semantics with cognitive neuroscience to model how we perceive actions and emotions - an approach that might be used as a basis to develop new types of brain machine interfaces as exemplified by he DTU "Smartphone Brain Scannner" and HTF Advanced Technology Foundation "Eye Control of Smartphones" projects.
