IHSEV in a nutshell

IHSEV is a multidisciplinary team that focuses on the interaction between humans and systems. It adresses different kind of systems like robots, virtual environnements, socio technic system or simulation but put always the role and the relation between the human the system at the main concern of the researches.  For example, it adresses the acceptability of assistive robots, the improvement of human performances through the use of virtual or augmented reality as well as the developpment of virtual characters able to afford a feeling of co-presence for humans that interact with it. It also adresses the transposition of human interactive and social capabilities toward different systems through machine learning technics or high level modelisations.
