Audio Analysis Lab
The research lab was founded in 2012 and is located at the Dept. of Architecture, Design & Media Technology (AD:MT) at Aalborg University (AAU) in Denmark. It is headed by Associate Professor Mads Græsbøll Christensen and is comprised of a group of researchers who conduct basic and applied research in signal processing theory and methods aimed at or involving analysis of audio signals. The research focuses on problems such as compression, analysis, classification, separation, and enhancement of audio signals, as well as localization, identification and tracking using microphone arrays. The lab and its members are currently funded by grants from the Villum Foundation, the Danish Council for Strategic Research, and the Danish Council for Independent Research.

Augmented Cognition Lab
The Augmented Cognition Lab is dedicated to the study of perception, cognition, affective states and aesthetic experience in digital and multimodal media and cognitive technologies. It is well equipped technologically and methodologically to investigate such processes when experiencing and interacting with complex stimuli and narrative content provided through immersive and representational interactive displays. The lab is directed by associate professors Luis Emilio Bruni together and Sofia Dahl. Through interdisciplinary research it intends to:
- Monitor user experience by developing rigorous methodologies to improve the integration of first-person assessments of subjective experience with third person observational and bio-behavioral data obtained by a variety of methods.
- Integrate bio-physiological and augmented cognition technics, BCI and sensor technology with immersive-interactive applications as interfacing or monitoring devices.
- Prospect and promote sustainable and novel applications of digital cognitive technologies in education, health, art, culture, ecology and particularly assistive technologies for people with disabilities or especial needs.
- Study and asses the cognitive limits, the effects and the cultural implications of technological acceleration in digital culture with focus on sustainability.
