“What we aim for in the end is some sort of mechanism, that tells us, whether the users understood, what they were looking at.”

Jakob Karolus is a researcher at the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems at the University of Stuttgart working in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. Within the project SFB-TRR 161 “Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing” he wants to find out how different visualizations influence the eyemovement patterns of people. His vision is the development of a system that adapts visual information by detecting if people understood it or not.

Just have a look at this interview about his research activities!
