AI Research

Dr. Tobias Baur

I am an AI researcher at the Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence Lab at the University of Augsburg, Germany.

I received my PhD (Doktor rer. nat.) in summer 2018. My main research focus is on creating tools that aim to help non-experts creating and understanding Machine Learning models.

My research interests include:

Artificial Emotional Intelligence; Social Signal Processing; Interactive Machine Learning; Explainable AI; Affective Computing; Human Computer Interaction,

With the tools developed at our lab we aim to help analysing affective and emotional reactions of people towards certain stimuli, e.g. advertisement videos, art installations, health-care applications, human-robot and human-agent interactions and similar areas.

The open-source tools that I’m actively developing at our lab on Github:



NOVA: eXplainable Cooperative Machine Learning, Data Annotation and Analysis
