Interactive Technologies & Multimedia Research Group/ Lab

(Room no. 4309, CC-2, IIITA)

Incharge/ Head :

Prof. Anupam Agrawal




The Interactive Technologies & Multimedia Research Group targets to conduct research on the cutting-edge topics of interactive technologies & multimedia with Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) fields. Designing interactive systems is an interdisciplinary field in which computer scientists, engineers, neuro-scientists, psychologists, social scientists, design professionals and others play important roles. The goal of this research lab is to solve real problems in the design and use of technology, making computer controlled and computer-based systems easier to use and more effective for people and organizations. Ease of use fitting the technical level of operator and effectiveness in services are critical to the success of any systems that interact with people, including software systems, home, office and factory appliances, web applications, infotainment systems, medical diagnostics and treatment systems, learning systems etc. Designing interactive systems needs to be human-centered.    

New paradigms for interacting with computers are being developed which will define the 21 st century standards and enable the world to communicate and interact effortlessly and intuitively. Much of today's research in interactive technologies lacks a tight coupling between technology innovation and end-user needs. The development of intelligent interactive systems would need to address the issues related to wide variety of cultures and languages, different levels of literacy and education, new sets of users with different experience, attitudes, expectations and capabilities. The aim of current research in designing intelligent interactive systems is to make the interaction between computers and people smarter. Unlike traditional Human-Machine Interaction (HMI), we are willing more to consider solutions that involve large amounts of knowledge, heuristics, and emerging technologies such as brain-computer interfaces, natural language understanding, automated surveillances or gesture recognition etc to serve the purpose effortlessly. Since multimedia signals can now be integrated using computers, there has been a virtual explosion of computer-based multimedia applications.

Our research is directed mainly towards the following areas:

  • Image & Vision Processing
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Machine Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Video Surveillance
  • Intelligent System
  • GPU Programming
  • Virtual Reality
  • Computer Graphics
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Remote Sensing & GIS
  • Soft Computing
  • Multimedia Information Processing
