The Human-Centered Technology Group at CSI focuses on designing, developing, and evaluating technologies that make our lives easier and better, with people in mind. We are a multidisciplinary team teaching and carrying out fundamental and applied research in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), visualization, human-centered design and human-centered AI.

To facilitate the research, the group hosts the HCILab Opens in new window., a well-equipped environment with tools that can be utilized to gain deeper user insights (e.g., eye-tracking, EEG) and create innovative solutions (e.g., virtual and augmented reality).
