Sarwar Paplu completed B.Sc in Computer Science (CS) from the University of Chittagong and M.Sc in CS from TU Kaiserslautern (TUK). The topic of his Master thesis was "Personality Traits Recognition in the Context of Human-Robot Interaction". Presently, he is a PhD fellow at the Robotics Research Lab (RRLab), TUK. Previously, he worked as a lecturer in Bangladesh.
He is working on the development of a robot control architecture for a socially interactive robot named ROBIN, taking perceptual, memory and reasoning aspects into account. Based on the perception of the nonverbal cues of an interaction partner, the robot is now capable of showing appropriate reactions in specific scenarios. Textual as well as verbal interaction has been implemented with a speech recognition system integrated. Various aspects of natural language processing have been incorporated with the system. His recent research focuses on a scientific framework triggering the improvement of linguistic as well as cognitive skills of the humanoid robot.
