Welcome to the Computational Interaction (COIN) group website! We use computational methods and data-driven models to enable, support, explain, and improve any kind of user interaction. In particular, our work addresses both fundamental and applied research activities in the following areas:

  • Human-Computer Interaction, with a strong focus on computational user interface design and interactive input techniques.
  • Machine Learning, in particular research with Deep Learning models.
  • Information Retrieval, especially related to human factors and interfaces.
  • Natural Language Processing, including text generation, phrase sampling, and text entry.

In addition, teaching and supervision of both Master of Science and Doctorate students rank high in the group's activities. We pursue a strong educational policy and actively combines state-of-the-art research with the training of next generation of high-class researchers. The group also engages in strong cooperative research activities by direct and peer-to-peer interactions with relevant industrial actors resulting in jointly funded PhD students and significant technology transfer.

COIN is led by Prof. Dr. Luis A. Leiva. The group is part of the ILIAS lab of the Department of Computer Science.
