Research

Overview

Our research topics include design, methods and techniques for making interactions between humans and data more effective, thereby making it easier to address societal issues based on a large amount of data. We work on different sensing methods including crowd sensing; different data analysis and visualization techniques based on data mining; and applied research of data analytics. In particular, we actively pursue applied research on learning analytics to improve learning and teaching based on data. We also conduct research on ubiquitous computing for the support of collaboration, problem solving, and creativity.

We focus on the topics including:

Learning Analytics for All (LA2)

Developing learning analytics for people of all ages including older adults.
Relevant symposium (LA9)

Right Feedback to the Right Learners (RFRL)

Developing learning analytics technologies with a strong focus on the provision of the right feedback to the right learners.

High-Res Social Analytics

Sensing and supporting people in public spaces and local communities.
