Operational Studio Director, Research Studio Pervasive Computing Research Studios Austria Forschungsgesellschaft

Benedikt Gollan studied electrical engineering and information technology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). He completed his dissertation “Sensor-based Online Assessment of Human Attention” in 2018 at the JKU Linz. In his research he focuses on automatic feature recognition in various areas (audio / video, various forms of explicit and implicit interaction). In particular, he deals with the technical recording of cognitive states (human attention) and their role in the interaction with technical information systems (attention-aware ICT).
