Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction

Three images of a gray-colored statue's face. From left to right, each image becomes progressively sharper and more detailed.

The HCII research theme seeks to enhance human-machine interface design through the optimization of state-of-the-art technology development and engineering of multimodal interface design concepts.

Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction also seeks to explicate the mechanisms of human perception, cognition, and action that are relevant to industrial, military, and consumer products. Projects in Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction involve the close collaboration of computer scientists, electrical engineers, neuroscientists, linguists and others in pursuit of knowledge relevant to the design of interfaces for human-computer systems.

A major research goal is the integration of engineering and computer science expertise. Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral students in these fields join together to design and construct hardware and software interfaces, as well as develop formal models of human perception, cognition, and action.

Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction Research Groups

Artificial Intelligence
The Artificial Intelligence group pursues a broad range of topics spanning robotics, vision, knowledge representation, learning, image processing, scheduling, reasoning, decision and information systems, and natural language processing.

Human Perception and Performance
The major focus of the Human Performance and Perception group is on the mechanisms of human perception and the relations between perception and action. Research programs in the group are organized to develop basic scientific knowledge about human perception and performance, and to apply this knowledge to support or improve these processes.

Image Formation and Processing
The Image Formation and Processing group is concerned with research issues related to the acquisition, manipulation, and synthesis of images. The many research topics fall into three broad categories: computerized imaging; image-video transmission, storage, and manipulation; and image and scene modeling and analysis.
