HCI Research at Télécom ParisTech
This project is devoted to fundamental and applied research on Human Computer Interaction (HCI). It focuses on the double challenge of representing and manipulating more and more data, and allowing this not only on standard computers but also on small, mobile and non traditional devices. Our main contributions take place in the following domains:
- Novel interaction techniques and principles, with an emphasis on the leveraging of input dimensions that have been overlooked so far
- Mobile interaction, with a special effort toward increasing the "interaction bandwidth" between users and their devices
- Information visualization, and more specifically interactive visualization, which aims at allowing users to explore and manipulate the data actively
- Fundamental HCI research on simple reaching movements, overwhelmingly frequent in HCI, with a project aimed at providing a more general understanding of Fitts' law
- End-user programming in order to give users richer control over their information tools.
