Human Centric Technology

The research area focuses on technology aiming to augment human capabilities and assist them in everyday activities. We address this goal by studying, e.g., methods for computational design, speech interaction, audiovisual headsets, and wearable computing. Our research teams study human perception to create better algorithms to model and simulate human behavior. Our research is seeking sustainable solutions for global grand challenges. 

Application areas include AI optimized user interfaces, AR/VR technology, spatial sound capturing and rendering, audio and music processing, as well as automatic speech recognition, understanding and production, not to forget speech privacy.
