Our goal is to develop next-generation human-machine interfaces that offer human-like interactive capabilities. To this end, we research fundamental computational methods as well as ambient and on-body systems to sense, model, and analyse everyday non-verbal human behavior and cognition.

PostDoc opening

We have a PostDoc opening in the area of “Bayesian Intent Prediction for Human-Machine Collaboration”. The PostDoc will contribute to the development of a new generation of human-computer interfaces that pro-actively adapt to users’ future actions by predicting their interaction intentions. Specifically, the PostDoc will formulate and study intent prediction in a fully Bayesian framework. This approach will not only enable future interfaces to quantify and adapt to the inherent uncertainty of the intent predictions themselves, but will also leverage this information to improve subsequent predictions of users’ actions.

The position is fully funded (100%) and is available to applicants of any nationality. You will contribute to the leadership of ongoing projects, will have the opportunity to advise undergraduate and graduate students, and contribute to the teaching activities of the group.
