Research Areas - Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)

Overview

The Human-Computer Interaction Group studies interaction in future computing environments including the office, home, mobile and medical. Emphasis on context-aware systems, perceptual interfaces (like computer vision and speech), visualization and learning technologies. The BID lab is a 4000-sq ft lab designed to foster collaboration, and houses about 25 students from CS, ME, BioE and Art practice. The Tele-immersive lab has about 10 students and postdocs from EECS, Humanities and Dance department and has extensive collaboration with faculty from University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.
