Program description

How do people interact with technology? And how can interaction technology be designed to meet the needs of users? HMI is about the communication between humans and digital technology.

Human Media Interaction combines technical expertise and skills in the field of interaction technology with knowledge and skills in user-oriented design methodologies and an understanding of how people interact with technology (i.e. what are their requirements, abilities and limitations?)

This Master’s programme focuses specifically on intelligent, multimodal systems offering a natural form of interaction. By employing a broad range of input modalities to observe and intelligently interpret user actions, these intelligent interactive systems aim to automatically determine user objectives and operational context and make the necessary adjustments. Topics include speech recognition, natural language processing, virtual reality, robotics and artificial intelligence.

You will develop and study advanced interfaces in interdisciplinary projects with students from various backgrounds: engineering, human sciences and art and design. In collaboration with the University of Trento, you can also earn a double degree
