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
