Very successful HCI Lab. Annual Summer Training:
It is with great pleasure that we announce the successful completion of the 2017 #HCI_Lab summer internship program. Out of more than 30 applicants, 15 students made it through six weeks of #multidisciplinary#research intensive tracks. The tracks spanned a wide spectrum of #Computer_Science areas such as: Human-Computer Interaction #HCI, Internet of Things #IoT, #Data_Science and #Machine_Learning, #Cryptography, #Image_Processing and Brain-Computer Interfaces #BCI. Each successful student is offered the opportunity to further pursue research with one of the lab’s professors building towards publishing a student #paper. We are hoping to see more high-caliber enthusiastic students in our upcoming cycles for the coming years, God willing.
نجاح برنامج التدريب الصيفى لمعمل تفاعل الإنسان والآلة:
إنه لمن دواعي سرورنا أن نعلن عن إتمام برنامج التدريب الصيفي بمعمل التفاعل بين الإنسان والآلة لعام 2017 بنجاح. من أصل أكثر من 30 طالبا تقدموا، نجح 15 طالبا من اجتياز 6 أسابيع من المسارات كثيفة البحث ومتعددة المجالات. غطت المسارات نطاقا واسعا من مواضيع علوم الحاسب مثل:#التفاعل_بين_الإنسان_والآلة، #إنترنت_الأشياء، #علم_البيانات و #تعليم_الآلة، #التعمية،#معالجة_الصور و #واجهات_المخ_مع_الكمبيوتر. كل طالب ناجح لديه فرصة مواصلة البحث مع أحد أساتذة المعمل في سبيل كتابة #ورقة_بحثية طلابية. نأمل أن نستمر في رؤية أفضل الطلبة المتحمسين في دوراتنا خلال السنين القادمة بإذن الله.

HCI-LAB formed in 2011 by Prof. Dr Mostafa Sami, Dr. Waleed Youssed (Lab Director), Dr, Ayman Ezzat (Lab Co-Director) and Dr, Omar Hamdy. In 2013 Dr, Essam rashed become visiting researcher from Image Science Lab Suez University. In 2014 Dr, Mohamed Nabil Joined the group for Cryptography. In 2015 Dr, Ghada Ahmed joined the lab for Networking Group
The lab aims Mission is
- Research Human-Computer Interaction area.
- Prepare and teach educational materials to establish theoretical foundations in that area.
- Push the culture to own the “know-how” science to produce than consume.
- Linking research with national industrial needs.
- Boosting the academic level, especially in our institution
Cryptography Group GP 2014-2015
1- Delegating Computation using Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE): Cloud security is a common concern in many markets today, including the Egyptian Ministry of Communication. Many users today worry for their data and/or trade-secret algorithms that they are not willing to submit them to the cloud for execution even if they need to. The aim of this project is to allow a user to send his program to the cloud for execution, while preserving the secrecy of both, his data, and his algorithm. The approach to this problem will employ Fully Homomorphic Encryption (see the list of references below) to implement an LLVM virtual machine, that will be able to execute any application, given it was compiled to LLVM, and then encrypted using an FHE scheme.
2- Cryptographic E-Voting: Electronic voting have been a rising field of research for the past few years and have been deployed in real-life situations in many countries. However, the existing approaches may not cover all the challenges facing developing countries. In particular, the unavailability of a reliable internet connection in many rural–and sometimes urban–areas; the potentially widespread corruption; and the illiteracy, whether to reading or to technology. The goal of this project is to investigate and implement a (partial) solution that is tailored to the unique challenges in Egypt, a developing country, using advanced cryptographic techniques, while at the same time assuring the whole system can tolerate the decaying infrastructure and be easily understandable by the general public.
In order a quickly and easily to create Augmented Reality and real-time application.We would like to build a smart augmented reality engine that allows ordinary users to develop their own AR education/entertainment applications. The engine aims to reduce the development cost and time needed to develop an AR application. Even-thought their exist some commercial AR engines they either requires programming knowledge or restricting their usage to predefined setups. We aim to deliver an AR engine that can utilize novel IHCII input devices (Kinect , WII, leap motion,…ETC). Moreover, ARENA allows ordinary users to build their own AR markers and scenarios with a usable GUI. ARENA users can create an Augmented reality application on mobile application.
