Touch interfaces are used in a large number of ubiquitous computers; however, they reduce the
users' input to simple points on a 2D touch-sensitive plane. This is in stark contrast to the
richness of how humans interact with the physical world. In my work, I study and build the
interfaces for the next generation of computing systems by considering the humans' full physiology
potential while respecting social and ergonomic constraints. I show how to go from simple
interaction to hand- and body-aware interactions.
About the Speaker
Sven Mayer is an assistant professor for HCI at the LMU Munich. In his research, he uses machine
learning tools to design, build, and evaluate future human-centered interfaces. He focuses on hand-
and body-aware interactions in contexts, such as large displays, augmented and virtual reality, and
About the Series
The Lecture Series is organized every winter term and consist of talks with international
speakers. The speakers are experts from various fields and professions. The talks are aimed at
covering the whole spectrum of visual computing and at discussing the relevance of quantification.
This years lecture series will be held entirely online.
This is an online event only.
