From desktop computers to smart watches to cell phones to robots, we are constantly using and interacting with technology. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) studies the ways we interact with technology and how technology shapes our experiences. At Princeton HCI, we develop and study technologies that augment people’s intelligence and extend their abilities, while allowing them to be present in the physical world and form meaningful connections with others.
Research at Princeton focuses on social computing, ubiquitous and tangible computing, human-centered machine learning, and creativity tools. This includes research on computer-supported collaborative work, public interest technology, augmented reality and virtual reality interactions and social experiences, explainable AI, fairness, accountability and transparency, and tools for professional and novice artists.
