Human-Computer Interaction

Brief overview of the research field

The goal of this very practical and young discipline is to revolutionize the input and output of PCs and thus the ways users and computers communicate. Can a musical instrument replace the keyboard? Can you scroll a screen using your eyes? And how can you create flexible, custom displays yourself? These and similar questions are tackled in our own workshop with state-of-the-art hardware.

Along with a new professorship in the Department of Computer Science, researchers at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics are actively involved in advancements in this field.
