Modelling Human Behavior Patterns for Interactive Systems through Research in the Large

In this project we propose a new approach to build models of human behavior that are based on a very large number of users. These models provide a solid basis for simulating human interaction with computing systems. Along with exemplary application domains, we want to design and implement apparatus that can be distributed to a large number of users. As we cannot bring a very large number of participants into the laboratory we intend to bring the apparatus to a very large number of participants. In contrast to using the apparatus in laboratory studies, we aim to distribute them through application stores. In particular, we want to use mobile applications as an apparatus that is designed to answer research questions. The applications will provide an incentive for potential users by being useful tools or by providing fun through games.
