Welcome to AIT

The Advanced Interactive Technologies Lab is an Human Computer Interaction (HCI) research group within the Departement of Computer Science at ETH Zurich, led by Prof. Dr. Otmar Hilliges. The group is jointly affiliated with the Institute of Visual Computing and Institute of Pervasive Computing. Our research focuses on the intersection of human computer interaction, emerging input sensing technologies, signal processing, computer graphics and applied computer vision.

The Advanced Interactive Technology lab at ETH Zurich is looking for two PhD students starting in Fall 2014.
