The research and teaching at the Division for Human-centered systems (HCS) at the Department of Computer and Information Science is highly interdisciplinary.
Cognitive Science: In this field we do research and teaching on distributed and situated cognition, cognitive ethnography, learning technologies, and design cognition. We also do research on artificial intelligence including knowledge representation, machine learning, and natural language processing. In cognitive systems we cover human factors, cognitive ergonomics, man-machine interaction as well as command and control, emergency and disaster management, safety management, and resilience engineering.
Information Systems: In this field, the research and teaching focuses on decision support systems, data mining, and the world wide web including semantic web, ontologies, description languages, searching, applications and services. We also have research on information retrieval, such as document representation, personalization and search interfaces, retrieval models, ranking, retrieval tasks and evaluation of retrieval results.
Applied Computing: Areas of research include document management and text processing, aerospace, services, healthcare, games, trainings simulations, education, command and control, and computing in government and military domains.
