Human Computer Interaction, CSCW and InfoVis​

The HCI field has contributed to the development of all contemporary user interfaces and will continue to do so in the future. Many commercial and societal solutions are however still developed without proper use of HCI methods and involvement of users, leading to huge and expensive IT failures. It is thus mandatory at a Danish level but also internationally to create more transparent, user centered and democratic societies, which propose alternatives to mainstream commercial technologies.

To increase the capacity in theoretical, empirical, and technological HCI research to sustain a high international impact.

The research will also create synergies with the AI and Algorithms themes in the development of explainable AI and Visual Analytics, with Advanced and Efficient Big Data Management and Analysis in putting the user in the loop of data management and use, hence emphasising collaborative HCI, and with the Cyber Physical systems theme in the development of HCI for physical products and environments, including multiple modalities as well as Augmented Reality visualisation of data etc. in physical environments.

Finally, there is a synergy with the Cybersecurity theme on usable security.

EXPLAIN-ME: Learning to collaborate via explainable AI in medical education

Most research in medical AI never makes it to the clinic. We aim to create more clinically useful AI and increase technology acceptance among clinicians by establishing Human-AI collaboration as a target that can be optimized similarly to predictive performance. In terms of explainable AI, this defines a shift from researching what we can explain to also researching how we explain it well.

SIOT – Secure Internet of Things – Risk analysis in design and operation

When developing novel IoT services or products today, it is essential to consider the potential security implications of the system and to take those into account before deployment. Due to the criticality and widespread deployment of many IoT systems, the need for security in these systems has even been recognised at the government and legislative level, e.g., in the US and the UK, resulting in proposed legislation to enforce at least a minimum of security consideration in deployed IoT products.
