Seminar Type:  ITEE Research Seminar


Artificial intelligence (AI) has outperformed human in many established domains. As a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) researcher and an optimist, I see opportunities to invent next-generation interactive technologies that augment human intelligence and creativity by human-computer cooperation.

In this talk, I will present my recent works where human and computer team up to build creative contents, from 2D sketching, 3D modelling, to 3D fabrication. I will also explain why I believe the future of human augmentation lies in the combination of Mixed Reality (MR) and Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and present my current works about learning and training in this emerging interdisciplinary research field.

Seminar duration: 45 mins


Tim Chen received his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan in 2012. He then worked as a researcher at the Igarashi Lab at the University of Tokyo and a post-doc research fellow at the HCI Lab at Hasso Plattner Institute. In 2016, he took a lecturer position at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and became a core member of the Center of Artificial Intelligence. His research interests lie in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Graphics. He actively works with researchers in different disciplines to build novel interaction systems where humans team up with computers to collaboratively produce creative contents.
