Welcome to the Smart Tools Lab!
We are part of the Mechanical Engineering Department
in the Bourns College of Engineering
, at the University of California, Riverside
We conduct research in the development of intelligent
design software. For example, we have developed systems that can learn to
solve design problems by observing solutions created by a human designer. We
also conduct research in natural user interfaces. Here, our work is focused
on enabling computers to understand natural forms of human communication,
primarily sketching, but also speech and gesture. The aim of this work is to
we create computational techniques and user interface design principles to
enable natural, pen-based software for a variety of applications, such as
engineering and education.
