Our paper on brainsourcing, titled "Brainsourcing: Crowdsourcing Recognition Tasks via Collaborative Brain-Computer Interfacing" accepted for publication at CHI 2020. Paper available here.
We conduct fundamental research into developing new types of implicit brain-computer interfaces and applying them in novel, adaptive and interactive systems. Our current interaction with information retrieval systems rely on explicit interaction. Could we mine the relevance to or interest of the user directly from the human mind? Our research shows, for the first time, that with the help of EEG interpreted via machine learning is indeed possible.
We develop interactive machine learning methods for cognitive modeling of information retrieval, visualization, and information generation, and systems implementing these in real-world information seeking applications. We have developed a technique called interactive intent modeling that allows humans to direct exploratory search: the technique has been implemented in a real-world search engine SciNet.
We develop machine learning models to model, understand, and decode cognitive states of humans interacting with large information spaces, such as texts, images, and video. We have discovered that human information processing of language stimuli when reading follows information theoretic principles and can be explained by information gain.
