Carnegie Mellon has had a long history of successful research in areas relevant to human-computer interaction, including user-interface software tools, cognitive models, speech recognition, natural language understanding, computer graphics, gesture recognition, data visualization, intelligent agents, visual interface design, multimedia, computer-supported cooperative work, computer music and drama, intelligent tutors, technical writing, and the organizational and social impact of technology.

The Human-Computer Interaction Institute carries on this tradition by fostering and carrying out multidisciplinary research and education in human-computer interaction. The scope of its work includes designing and testing of new tools and technologies to support human activity and organization, and building theory in the field. The research includes empirical and analytic studies of behavior, and studies of behavior in groups and organizations to inform the design and evaluation of new technologies. Students from supporting departments find a rich source of research opportunities in the HCII; and the Institute also offers a framework for research and development alliances with industry.
