Information & Human Centred Computing group
Information and Human Centred Computing is about computer mediated human interactions with data and the world. In other words, using computers to try to understand what users want now in the tasks they are doing, and presenting users with relevant information. When we interact and co-operate with other humans, they usually understand and predict what we will do, but traditionally computers just sit there waiting to be told what to do next. Our goal is for computers to 'think ahead', and to be proactive in their interactions with humans. We will add value to diverse academic and industrial areas by partnerships rather than merely producing enabling commodity tools.
