Personal Bio

Katerina holds a BA in Linguistics (University of Athens, Greece), an MSc in Machine Translation (UMIST, UK) and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence (University of Sheffield, U.K.) in which she explored the integration of vision and language within artificial agents engaged in everyday interaction. Her research is focused on the computational integration of language, perception and action based on experimental findings from neuroscience. Among others, she has developed the first ‘Minimalist Grammar of Action’, the PRAXICON semantic memory model, the PLT affordances network and the COSMOROE image-language semantic interplay framework.

She has coordinated a number of European projects on using language in robotic applications, and she has worked on information extraction and automatic text-based image/video indexing and retrieval. She has lectured on Human-Computer/Human-Robot Interaction and the use of cognitive and psychological methods in software engineering (University of Sheffield) and has organised international workshops on image-language association with sponsorships from GOOGLE, the EU-Cognition Network and other international foundations.

In WinningMinds, Katerina is mainly responsible for the development of the emotional and cognitive attitudes scheme that is being used for the analysis and interpretation of a speaker's behaviour in meetings and the team communication dynamics, and performs basic research on the identification of those verbal patterns that reveal such behaviour.
