Overview

The Interaction Lab focuses on data-driven methods for creating novel natural language interfaces and multimodal interfaces, using machine learning techniques to achieve increasing levels of adaptivity and robustness.

Our research addresses some of the central problems in computer science and AI, by developing intelligent interactive systems which can collaborate effectively and adaptively with humans, and combining a variety of interaction modalities, such as speech, graphics, gesture, vision, and Natural Language. Our methods combine statistical and symbolic information processing, and we are developing data-driven machine learning approaches to build robust agents which can adapt autonomously in uncertain and dynamic interactions.

These techniques are applied in a variety of domains, such as conversational interfaces, mobile search, wearable technology, technology enhanced learning, healthcare informatics, and human-robot interaction (HRI). We evaluate the performance of our models and algorithms both in simulation and in trials with real users.

Programme duration

Full-time study for a PhD normally takes 3 years. Part-time options are also available.
