CHIL

Computers in the Human Interaction Loop

The goal of the CHIL project is to make everybody’s daily life easier.

Therefore we are developing a fundamental shift in the way we use computers today. We aim to realize computer services that are delivered to people in an implicit, indirect and unobtrusive way. This will free people to interact with people and reposition machines to be in the background and - like electronic butlers - attempting to anticipate and serve people’s needs. Computers in the Human Interaction Loop (CHIL) aims to introduce computers into a loop of humans interacting with humans, rather than condemning a human to operate in a loop of computers. This will give humans the most valuable gift: more time.
