Welcome to the BEAR Lab at the Department of Computer Science, University of Rochester .

BEAR stands for Behavioral Enhancement and Adaptive Reality (or Be Enthusiastic About Research :D). We focuse on understanding, predicting and enhancing user behavior in Mixed Reality (MR) interaction. We capture the user’s behavioral and perceptual patterns with computational methods; develop input techniques and adaptive user interfaces to facilitate human-computer two-way communication; explore unique behavioral enhancements enabled by MR.
