Our main research area is Human-Computer
Interaction which explores interaction between human and computers. The study intersects disciplines
such as computer science, behavioral science, design, communication, media studies and several other
fields of study.
As computer plays an important role in our daily
life, it is becoming also important to understand social interaction within a computerized society.
Social Computing is an area of intersection of computer science and social science to understand and
support any sort of social behavior in or through computational systems.
We are working on the development of an algorithm that automatically generates news articles. In the near future,
algorithms will become more involved in the delivery of information as a personal information curator. We are interested
in the role of algorithms in the transmission of information in the future.
As AI permeates our lives, AI is replacing many of our jobs. But AI will act as a partner rather than our competitors.
We are working on building the relationship between AI and humans, how to communicate, and how to work together. We
research AI as companions.
