Our Research

Humans are evolving with technology whether we like it or not. To explicitly face this reality, and actively seek to understand it, we can maximize the success of this co-evolution. CENTIENTS supports development of a new field – human-building interaction – which represents unique collaboration between many fields – architecture, engineering, computer and data science, human factors and psychology, and more; it therefore contributes to a number of fields. The most exciting implications of the emerging field of human-building interaction are the possibilities for automation in buildings. The work conducted by CENTIENTS and elsewhere, will evolve into opportunities for automation/AI to redesign our life “inside” by granting it control over our indoor spaces.
