Interaction Modeling

Interaction Design

Digitalisation, the Internet of Things and machines become increasingly integrated in our lives, in our everyday domestic lives as well as in broader socio-economic structures. Consequently, while the complexity of machines, computers and autonomous systems rises continuously interaction design needs to take up these developments and turn them into meaningful user experiences and effortless interactions.

Speech-Based Dialog

We see speech-based dialog as a key aspect for virtual or robotic agents to engage in a successful interaction with the human users. Besides investigating dialog models.

Learning by Interacting

Humans exchange various types of information when they interact with each other. Therefore, we analyze human behavior and human robot interaction. Our aim is that systems learn from interactions with humans.
