Agent of User

Hi! My name is Helder S Ribeiro.

As an independent HCI researcher, I focus on the fields of discrete input optimization and predictive end-user programming.

My work centers on high-bandwidth text entry in low-cardinality input devices, such as assistive technology, media controllers, and virtual reality interfaces.

I also develop new methods for interactive and predictive end-user programming, with the goal of enabling tactile, adaptive, and direct manipulation of complex, data-intensive interfaces.

Through my research, I strive to augment human intelligence by removing I/O bottlenecks between mind and machine, and increase our capacity for tackling hard problems, like ensuring AI is scalably aligned to human values.
