Socio-Technical Systems brings together applied research interests that have a common focus on users and their requirements.
The Socio-Technical Systems research group investigates the interactions between information technologies, design methods and people. The group researches both organisation-level software design, development and adoption methods as well as user-focussed design technologies such as user simulation through cognitive modelling, face recognition and modelling, location/situation-aware systems, visualisation and mobile technologies.
Applications in areas:
- Oil and Gas
- Finance Sector
Group members interests in field of:
- Usability and HCI
