Master thesis: Make a device smarter with use of eye tracking and machine learning

Today we use eye tracking in various applications and games for VR and PC, the eye tracking is used for various interactions where user is using his/her eyes to indicate explicit intention. What we believe is that we can turn the interaction the other way around and make the device understand what user is intending to do instead. By identifying what the user is trying to do like reading, looking for something or other we can then train a model to predict such states and use that to improve user experience implicitly.

The aim of this master thesis is to determine and evaluate what eye patterns can be used with machine learning to give an acceptable predictability of user intention.

The goal of the thesis is to:

  • Define relevant user eye patterns, such as reading, searching etc.
  • Create a prototype that uses machine learning to predict eye patterns in real-time
  • Evaluate various ML algorithms and choose the best one for the task

We believe you have: 

  • Understanding of common machine learning algorithms
  • Understanding of what is needed and how to set up training of a model
  • Some experience with machine learning prototyping
  • Scientific approach to problem solving

Your application shall include: 

  • CV
  • cover letter
  • transcripts
