I am Thomas Langerak, a student in Human-Computer Interaction & Design at Aalto University, Finland and Twente University, the Netherlands. I specialize in Intelligent Systems.  I have an interested in how people interact with computers. I employ my skills in design, computer science, prototyping and critical thinking to explore the future and spark debate.

Welcome.

I enjoy the thrill of adventure. No matter whether this is discovering a new country or being at the frontier in research. I do not back away from it. Even when things get difficult (or very cold). So far I have studied in three different countries and planning on making it more!

 

I am interested in how humans and machines (being it computers, robots or otherwise) collaborate. How do people work together with AI? How can a robot sense our intention? How can we see the intention of the robot? Are questions that are on my mind.

 

I like to investigate these topics with the help of user modeling. For instance a topic I like is modeling the Theory of Mind.
