Research: Centers, Labs, and Programs

Computer Graphics and Visualization Group

Building technology that lets you step into photographs. By capturing stereo-panoramas at resolutions above 100 Megapixels, virtual reality becomes reality. We are testing and developing a variety of 360′ stereo capture devices to allow for real-time navigation in photo realistic environments.

Information Security, Privacy, and Mining Group


The main goal of the Information Security, Privacy, and Mining (ISPM) Research Lab is to carry out research in areas of cyber-security. ISPM aims at designing secure and privacy-preserving protocols for distributed data mining, integration, and publishing. It also aims at developing tools and systems for solving real-life problems related to cyber forensic, digital currencies, and cloud computing.

People and Information Research Team

The People and Information Research Team studies information retrieval, recommender systems, and other intelligent information systems. We are particularly interested in building compelling new applications focused on the needs of their users; understanding the ways in which these systems, their users, and society affect each other; and promoting high-quality, reproducible research on recommender systems.

Directors: Sole Pera, PhD and Michael Ekstrand, PhD

Speech, Language & Interactive Machines Group

The SLIM group has a theoretical as well as a practical aspect to it. We draw inspiration from linguistics and psychology to help guide our theoretical research and develop computational models of all aspects of spoken dialogue. We then implement practical dialogue systems (e.g., as digital personal assistants, robot commands, conversational chatbots, etc.) to evaluated the theories and improve people’s lives.
