Research Report 2010 – 2013, Human-Computer Interaction, FernUniversität in Hagen
Research at the Chair of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI group) at FernUniversität in Hagen is focused on the investigation and development of interactive and intelligent systems. Cooperating with researchers around the world, the group is active in basic as well as applied research. The underlying motivation on the part of basic research is the big question of the nature of consciousness. Here the group is interested in the investigation of intelligent biological systems by means of theory building as well as simulations on computers and robotical systems. More concrete, the HCI group aims at gaining deeper insight into particular aspects of human or animal cognition, such as vision or spatial cognition. The main goal on the part of applied research is the development of intelligent computer systems that interact with humans in an intuitive and multimodal way.
