The UbiComp lab (@ National Taiwan University) is interested in designing and creating real systems that demonstrate how future computing technologies can blend into our everyday activities. We are interested in creating digital technology that can engage and excite people into active participation of desirable physical and mental activities at home that are considered healthy, creative, productive, educational, playful, etc. Our goal is to develop digital technology that empowers people, not just supports smart environments.
We are interested in behavior sensing and feedback systems that influence and motivate behavioral changes in people. We are interested in wearable computing that can monitor and produce data about human activities and health. We are interested in exploring sensor system & networking platform, making it easy to create new UbiComp applications. We have a general interest in human-computer interaction, Internet of Things, and mobile computing. We are interested in working with researchers outside of our computer science discipline. We are interested to learn, from their eyes, how ubiquity of data and computing can play a part in doing good for humans.
We are re-grouping toward the next big mobile revolution where smart things (i.e., embedded with computing, sensing, and networking capability) also gain mobility (e.g., self-driving cars). This will create a new world, where data and computing will come out of the digital world into our physical world where we live, work, and play.
We welcome all students who share our interest to join our research projects. We especially welcome undergraduate students (大學部1-4). It is our hope that students will be active participants, gain valuable research and hands-on project experiences, and then move on to do great things in their next steps. Please check out our lab alumni worldwide.
