CHIL

Project researchers

The vision of the CHIL project (IP 506909) is to develop and explore a fundamental shift in the way we use computers today. We aim to realize computer services that are delivered to humans in an implicit, indirect and unobtrusive way. We wish to free people to interact with people and reposition machines to be in the background, discretely observing the humans and – like electronic butlers – attempting to anticipate and serve their needs. Computers in the Human Interaction Loop (CHIL) aims to introduce computers into a loop of humans interacting with humans, rather than condemning a human to operate in a loop of computers. This will give humans more time to do what they really like: communicate and work productively with other humans.
