Pervasive eye-based human-computer interfaces

LOCATION: Auditorium 1, TEL, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 7, 20th floor

SPEAKER: Andreas Bulling, Max Planck Institute for Informatics


Despite considerable advances in eye tracking and automated eye movement analysis over the last decades, previous work on computational methods and eye-based human-computer interfaces mainly developed use of the eyes in traditional ("desktop") settings that involved single user, single device and WIMP-style interactions. This is despite the fact that the eyes are involved in nearly everything that we do and thus potentially hold a lot (more) valuable information for interactive systems.

In my talk I will first provide a short introduction to the state-of-the-art in eye tracking and eye-based human-computer interaction. I will then motivate and describe a vision for the next generation of pervasive eye-based user
interfaces that continuously analyse and fully exploit the wealth of information contained in visual behaviour in all explicit and implicit interactions that users perform with computing systems throughout the day. In the second part of my talk I will show examples of our previous and ongoing work in this emerging area of research.


Dr. Andreas Bulling is an Independent Research Group Leader (W2) at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the Cluster of Excellence on Multimodal Computing and Interaction, where he leads the Perceptual User Interfaces group. Dr. Bulling holds a PhD in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland, and a MSc in Computer Science from the Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany. Dr. Bulling was previously a Marie Curie IEF Research Fellow and Feodor Lynen Research Fellow in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge,
United Kingdom, a postdoctoral research associate at the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University, United Kingdom, as well as a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Cambridge. Dr. Bulling served as TPC member
and reviewer for major conferences and journals in mobile and ubiquitous computing and HCI as well as TPC co-chair for AugmentedHuman 2013 and associate chair for CHI 2013.
