At HCI we engage in the design of socially innovative systems and services leading to more sustainable and humane society. Our work focusses on stakeholder driven service innovation across several contexts: from health care, aged-care, education to human resource management and organisational innovation.
We deliver social robot enabled life style centred services to support people affected by social isolation, dementia and autism in various settings. We’ve worked with organisations, clients and individuals to deliver these services in home-based care, residential aged care, hospital and other health care contexts in Australia.
The work is outcome of 8 years of research and field trials undertaken by Research Centre for Computers, Communication and Social Innovation (RECCSI) at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.
