Understanding users behaviours, applications and challenges
Event date:  November 11, 2019, 4:00 PM  to 5:00 PM


Understanding users behaviours and human daily activities is a challenging area of research. Current methods suffer from real-time recognition issues, classifiers, and pattern recognition problems. In this talk, we explore diverse methods to capture human activities, sensor-based and camera-based. We subsequently introduce HCI-LAB research in this area from different application perspectives (Sports, drivers behaviours, hand gestures, and autistic child behaviours etc).



Dr. Atia is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Helwan University, Egypt. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Tsukuba, Japan 2011, and the B. Sc. and M. Sc. degrees from the Department of Computer Science, Helwan University, Egypt in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Dr. Atia is a Co-Founder of HCI-LAB, and head of the interaction group.  His work includes finding new interaction techniques for large display and finding abnormal behaviour for driving vehicles, theft detection, sports activities and software engineering frameworks. Despite the education and research challenges that face countries like Egypt, Dr. Atia is continuously supervising master and bachelor theses and was a recipient of governmental-fund and/or awards on several occasions. He is currently a member of ACM SIGCHI and a former senior member of the IEEE computer society till 2016.
