Our labs
Human AI Cooperation and Interaction Lab
In our Human AI Cooperation and Interaction Lab, we investigate the interaction between human and AI agents in application areas such as human robot cooperation and for technologies such as chatbots. Our main interest is in the impact of AI on the work, learning and cooperation of humans.
Ubiquitous Interaction Lab
Ubiquitous interaction: Living in a world in which the Internet of Things, Augmented Reality and Ubiquitous Computing let physical and digital worlds merge, we explore how these technologies, which are predominantly used and investigated for individual use, can be used to support cooperation of people. We look for changes these technologies can make for cooperation and try to prevent dangers resulting from what we may call ubiquitous interaction. To work on these questions we will build the HCIS Ubiquitous Interaction Lab.

Ongoing projects
Furniture store of the future: How can an online consultation process for goods like furniture look like? What is important to consider regarding those expensive and highly customizable goods? How can technology support those developed designs and concepts? How could they look like? On these and other questions we work in our project ARBay.

The mastery of heterogeneous human-machine teams requires interdisciplinary cooperation, especially between computer science, information and systems technology, mathematics, data science and economics. The research of models, methods and technologies for engineering, simulation, validation and optimization of heterogeneous HMTs forms the basis of future industrial production systems, in which humans together with automated conveyor and robot systems form teams for the realization of flexible and efficient manufacturing or dismantling. An interdisciplinary team of researchers will investigate current issues in the context of heterogeneous HMTs. Prof. Prilla is currently working on topic 1.1 of the PHD projects in cooperation with Prof. Rausch.

Pflegebrille 2.0
Pflegebrille 2.0 bases on the results of our previous project Pflegebrille. In Pflegebrille we tried to find out how to support caregivers with augmented reality on a basic research level. Pflegebrille 2.0 aims to adapt this so far well approved concept for further and more detailed research.

In the new network for innovative care support, HCIS works together with Metropolregion Hannover Braunschweig Göttingen Wolfsburg an many other partners from Lower Saxony to improve care.

Completed projects
Support for learning at work: We investigate methods and tools to support people to learn together while they work. Learning then takes place informally and need to compete with other pressuring tasks and (time) constraints. We work on these questions with the focus of support reflection at work in our project EmployID.

IT support in healthcare: In healthcare questions we explore possibilities of IT to support learning in a less tech-savvy, yet highly important sector. Challenges are to carefully adapt and integrate IT into processes of healthcare workers in order to create value, meaning to improve the work of care workers as well as the health status of patients. We work on these challenges in our project Pflegebrille.
