Research Challenges

The following challenges are to be addressed on the way to the user-adapted solutions:

  • Human-machine communication is context dependent.
  • The natural user-to-machine communication is dependent on user’s personality, mood and emotions.
  • The user-to-machine communication is continuous. 
  • The communication system is autonomous in terms of information gathering and intelligent decision.

To make a step forward towards a solution of the above-listed challenges, our group is concentrating on the following fields:

  • User modelling and context-aware conversational recommender systems. 
  • User interface design. 
  • Multimedia signals and communication.
  • Social signals.
  • Internet of things (IoT) and big-data analysis for end-user context identification.
  • Special communication hardware solutions. 
  • Social network user-data acquisition.
