Human-Machine Communication

University of Groningen

Master Postgraduate Groningen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary How can we model human task performance? How do our brains combine visual and auditory information? What is the ideal interface for a tired air traffic controller?
Course description The Master's degree programme in Human-Machine Communication (HMC) focuses on Cognitive Science and its applications. HMC provides you with insights into human cognition and teaches you to use this knowledge in applied settings, such as tutoring systems, speech technology and human-computer interaction. For example, by leveraging knowledge of human cognition, you can improve the communication between humans and complex computer systems, use language and speech technology, or develop simulation models of users.Two questions form the basis for this programme: * How does human cognition work?* How can we use this knowledge in applied settingsTo answer these questions, you have to know how humans perform specific tasks and how this performance limits and affects task performance. How do humans acquire new skills and how do they learn to adapt to a new task? In addition, it is important to think about how humans communicate and apply this to human-machine communication. While language is the most natural way of human communication, this might not always be the best to communicate with a machine.
