Estimating and Predicting Human States and Behavior

Augmented Reality This research thrust is focused on developing a comprehensive understanding of human states and behaviors in the real world. This effort is centered on observing, characterizing, and ultimately predicting human states and behaviors in natural settings where significant differences from laboratory based experimentation are expected. In this thrust, we aim to develop new theories that can capture and predict novel dynamics encountered in real world environments and systems of tools to acquire, analyse, and form usable interpretations and predictions about humans under real world conditions. We expect this research to lead to tools that provide usable information and the understanding of how and when to use different types of information.

The two current major projects in this thrust include:

THVP The Human Variability Project
RWN Real World Neuroimaging
