Department of Information and Communications Engineering

Human Computer Interaction

The group studies computational methods for improving user interfaces, including modeling, optimization, and machine learning methods.
User Interfaces

The group develops algorithms, models, and interactive tools for computational design and adaptation of user interfaces. The models are informed by theories in behavioral and social sciences and acquired in rigorous experimental studies. We have demonstrated the results in a number of applications ranging from classic problems like keyboards to novel multimodal interfaces.

The group is funded by ERC, Academy of Finland, and Technology Industries Finland.

We are part of the Finnish Center for AI, as well as the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems.
