Projects

Current Projects

The goal of our current projects is to support individuals with special needs through design and engineering across multiple domains: human-centered AI (#1), health informatics (#2, #3, #4), social computing (#5, #6), & accessibility (#7, #8) but not limited to those areas. HCAIL is currently supported by four major grants: 1) the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) grant funded by the Korea government (MSIT), 2) grant by the University of Seoul, 3) grant by the Seoul Metropolitan Government, & 4) grant by the Korean Ministry of Education.
