Martin is heading the group, currently as a 25% professor (and a 75% vice rector). His research ideas find their way into the work of his colleagues, especially the more junior ones. The last dissertations completed under his supervision dealt with natural, intuitive and calm interaction.
David’s main research interests revolve around the design and empirical evaluation of novel user interfaces and interaction techniques for smartphones and smartwatches, such as map navigation, menu, and image browsing interfaces, and in-air hand gestures, vibration-based input, and touch-commands.
Gerhard’s research areas are human system interaction, usability and user experience, with a special focus on smart homes, specific user groups (elderly, private home owners) and specific goals (active and assisted living, comfort enhancement, efficient and easy configuration and control).
Martin’s research focus is related to the topics of recommender systems and human decision making, group recommender systems, as well as configurators for complex products and services including AI-based techniques and concepts for intelligent knowledge representation in industrial settings.
Anton Josef Fercher
In his current research, Anton investigates new ways to support (end-) users in the do-it-yourself configuration process of Smart Homes. Here his special focus lies on the application of augmented reality based interfaces to provide users with technical background and guidance, as well as possibilities of risk-less exploration on demand.
Mahmoud explores different possibilities and strategies of using evolutionary algorithms to implement graphical user interfaces which automatically change themselves across time according to the user’s current activities and needs.
