MI-lab: Man and Information technology laboratory

At MI-lab we conduct applied informatics research for supporting innovative utilization of new information technology in business as well as in everyday life. MI-lab´s research is typically conducted in the form of design-oriented field studies that develop and test new IT concepts in realistic user settings. The current application areas of MI-lab research are media, health technology, and tourism. The core expertise areas of MI-lab include business models, interaction design, user studies, and ubiquitous computing.

Media has been the main focus for MI-lab for a number of years. In collaboration with a significant part of the Swedish media industry and a number of international firms, research has centered on conceptualizing and exploring new IT concepts and services enabling new forms of value capture. In particular, multi-channel publishing and convergence between different technologies and media types are important aspects of this research. Health technology is a new focus for MI-lab. In collaboration with CERES and Intelligent Systems, MI-lab´s research in this area is focused on developing new forms of user collaboration in designing technology-enabled health care of the future. Within tourism, research is geared towards design of mobile IT support for people visiting new places for exploratory and experiential purposes.
