Current Projects of the Duch Labs
in NeuroCognitive and Computational Intelligence Areas

Warning: rarely updated!

I am now mostly involved in my Neurocognitive Laboratory projects, but also have many unfinished projects in the computational intelligence area.
We should move these project to Wiki pages, right now most people are not adding their contributions!

Each project should include: objectives (short description), list of participants, time schedule, results (papers and talks), list of open problems, and a working log of weekly progress (local access for members of CIL only).
List of publications related to these projects is here.
