Description

Open PhD position in Human-Computer Interaction

We have an open position (fully funded) on the use of interactive recommendation techniques to deliver personalised advice to end-users. These techniques are researched to increase engagement of end-users in personalised health applications or in the context of smart education.

Research in the Augment group of the department of Computer Science at KU Leuven focuses on how end-users interact with personalised systems, such as recommender systems, personalised search and targeted advertisement. The objective is to enable end-users to understand the rationale of such systems and to enable them to steer the personalisation process with input and feedback. The focus is on visualisation and interaction techniques, using the full spectrum of hardware from small mobile devices to large multi-touch displays. Applications include healthcare, learning analytics, precision agriculture, media consumption, and digital humanities.
