2017 Summer Research Program Faculty Projects
|Faculty Member||Research Projects|
- Build intelligent personal assistants (e.g. Siri, Google Now)
- Superhuman typing project (using speech recognition and language models)
- Build systems that allow people with disabilities to be crowd workers
- Personal Medical Devices: looking for students to help build wearable devices that are as easy and seamless as a FitBit but provides medically-relevant information to the users.
- From one device to many: with advent of smartphones and more recently, Internet of Things, the users are interacting with many devices with overlapping capabilities. We are looking for students to help us make these distributed and overlapping interactions seamless.
- Build smartphone privacy tools
- Design and evaluate better user interfaces for privacy
- Build crowdsourcing tools to streamline smartphone messaging
- Improving online community moderation and management tools and techniques
- Designing novel social interactions for streamers and audience members on Twitch
- Design and build new ways for people to make sense of information (e.g., searching the web, scientific papers)
- Accelerate innovation and discovery (e.g., finding and using analogies from other products or fields)
- Improve (including development and design) online health support groups
- Investigate student editors' behavior on Wikipedia
- Design and/or build social computing research systems
- Design systems to increase diversity in the future of work
- Design and evaluate citizen science, environmental education, and observation and learning support tools
- Design and evaluate identification games and tools for water quality biomonitoring
- Digital Bioforensics - Analyze existing data set of typing rhythms to baseline/distinguish among 100 typists
- Digital BioTherapeutics - Gather and analyze data from physical therapy devices to track/evaluate patient progress.
- Dashboards for educational technology
- Work on and extend a collaborative, web-based environment for grammar construction and analysis. This work will lead to software actually used by CMU students as they learn about grammatical form and function in writing courses. Experience in Java programming a must.
- Design and develop educational games
- Software engineering + HCI for security
- Smartphone end-user programming by example
- IoT programming
- Studying API Usability
