Fields of expertise
Cyber Physical Systems
MissionThe Interaction Systems Group (REACT) deals with the design, the implementation, and the adoption of innovative information systems (algorithms, services, platforms, and apps). Interdisciplinary domains of deployment are cyber physical systems, social media for digital education and knowledge management, capacity building for development and social action, as well as explainable artificial intelligence.
BiographyDenis Gillet received the Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 1988, and the Ph.D. degree in Information Systems also from the EPFL in 1995. During 1992 he was appointed as Research Fellow at the Information Systems Laboratory of Stanford University in the United States. He is currently Maître d'enseignement et de recherche at the EPFL School of Engineering, where he leads the React research group. His current research interests include Technologies Enhanced Learning (TEL), Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Human Devices Interaction (HDI) and Optimal Coordination of Complex and Distributed Systems. Denis Gillet is affiliated at EPFL with the Center for Intelligent Systems and the Center for Digital Education.
