We have a couple of topics that will be very relevant for the future from medical image analysis over computer vision to AI-guided dialogue systems. One topic that might be very important in the future is animal sound recognition which may lead to a better understanding of our nature in the future. Also, we are interested in the actual processing inside the brain to learn more about its complex processing to gain further insights on phenomena such as consciousness.
