Human Computer Interaction

Human Computer Interaction (HCI) focuses on how people use technology and how it affects their lives, with a goal of designing the best possible digital tools for human users. At Adobe Research, HCI scientists are inventing new ways to help users learn to use technologies to become more efficient and thoughtful creators, tools to empower people to collaborate on artistic projects, and novel approaches to building creative communities online. This work spans a range of areas at Adobe, including design, photography, video, art, VR and AR, and more.
