Human-computer interaction (HCI) is a multidisciplinary field that focuses on the interaction between humans (the users) and computers, particularly through the User-centered design (UCD) of computer applications to enhance User Experience (UX). While initially concerned with computers, HCI has since expanded to cover almost all forms of information technology design.

A primary focus of the Research Center for Human-Computer Interaction (RC-HCI) is twofold:

  • Conduct empirical studies to explore user experience (UX) with assistive and educational games through an information visualization approach in order to establish an insight against their critical aspects.
  • Adopt user-centered design (UCD) and computational psychology approaches to propose next-generation assistive and educational games in order to ensure productive, easy-to-use, and safer UX.
