Audio Visual studios (A-101 & A-104, Research & Development Block, IIITD)

Audio Visual studios are designed to exhibit academia's research and intellectual capital onto Digital and Innovative Media platforms. These studios will help students prepare a comprehensive understanding of the modern media landscape through a blend of focused study and hands-on practice and research. The habitat fosters students to advance in knowledge and widespread learning on the challenges and innovations of the new digital media era.

The studios consist of 3 units, Audio Studio, Video Studio, and a Production Control Room. These are equipped with 4k Multi cameras, switcher, capture devices, Led lights, Gimbal cranes, sliders, Microphones, Midi controllers, and multi-track audio recording equipment, ready to harness the very best of virtual production technology.

The Audio-Visual Lab is currently under the supervision of Aman Samuel (Visiting Faculty, HCD, IIIT-Delhi) and Anoop Ratn (Visiting Faculty, HCD, IIIT-Delhi).

Cognitive Science Lab (Research & Development Block, IIITD)

Cognitive Science is the study of mind and intelligence and shares rich interdisciplinary knowledge across Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Linguistics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Education, and Media Studies. Goals of Cognitive Science: To understand and model the mind and its processes like attention, memory, executive functions by utilizing ideas and approaches from the complementary disciplines.

Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) Lab (B-418, Research & Development Block, IIITD)


At the Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) lab, we investigate novel interaction mechanisms to empower human-machine cooperation. HMI Lab is an initiative founded by Jainendra Shukla (Assistant Professor, CSE & HCD, IIIT-Delhi). The research at HMI lab lies at the intersection of Computer Science, Design, and Psychology. HMI lab provides a unique facility for talented individuals, including computer scientists, designers, and philosophers coming from Ph.D., master as well as undergraduate levels. The collaborative spirit of these talented individuals is employed to design and evaluate novel mechanisms of human-machine interaction for a wide range of application areas such as healthcare, education, entertainment, and training.

Living Lab (A-418, Research & Development Block, IIITD)


Understanding people’s attitudes towards and uses of technology is an essential aspect of successful design. Living lab under the supervision of Grace Eden (Assistant Professor, HCD IIIT-Delhi) specializes in research that explores the interrelationships between people, society, and technology. Researchers conduct empirical research using a variety of qualitative methods to identify requirements, improve usefulness and usability, and identify implications for how new technologies transform social life. Research areas:

  1. Contextual studies: Activity and interaction in real-world settings.
  2. Motivation studies: Attitudes and perceptions of emerging technologies, data, and information.
  3. Group and Individual behavior: Collaboration, communication, decision making, problem-solving, and distributed tasks.

Mélange Lab (A-413, Research & Development Block, IIITD)


What started as a journey of a group of dynamic researchers under the supervision of Pushpendra Singh (Professor CSE & HCD, IIIT-Delhi) working on Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing (MUC) in 2009 has now got an identity as Mélange– a diverse cadre working in areas like Public Health & Education(both rural and urban settings), Energy Sustainability, Mobile Cloud Sensing, etc. With passing years the transformation in vision moved towards Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with the objective of sustainable development.
Mélange believes that technology as a catalyst has the potential to drive our society towards a better future – at the individual, community, and societal levels. A group of socially-committed researchers who envision a multi-disciplinary approach in our research. Being actively involved in Maternal health and Menstrual hygiene, our work views women’s health from a broader perspective and finds opportunities in ICT based solutions for imparting education.

Multimodal Digital Media Analysis Lab (MIDAS Lab) (A-415, Research & Development Block, IIITD)


MIDAS is a group of researchers at IIIT-Delhi who study, analyze, and build different multimedia systems for society leveraging multimodal information. MIDAS stands for Multimodal Digital Media Analysis Lab and it is founded by Rajiv Ratn Shah (Assistant Professor, CSE & HCD, IIIT-Delhi).
MIDAS work includes Machine Learning, Multimedia Content Processing, Natural Language Processing, Image Processing, Multimodal Computing, Data Science, and Social Media Computing towards AI for Social Good. We believe in multidisciplinary collaborative research and work closely with eminent researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Georgia Institute of Technology, The University of Texas at Austin, National Institute of Informatics (NII), Bloomberg, SLTI, and others.

WEAVE Lab (A-416, Research & Development Block, IIITD)


Weave Lab under the supervision of Aman Parnami (Assistant Professor, HCD, IIIT-Delhi) works on interactivity that is weaved into everyday objects and experiences. Weavers envision as well as discover through critical observations new opportunities for human-computer interactions. Through extensive research on material and technologies, WEAVE prototypes manifestations of ideas, which are then iteratively improving. Weavers applied research approach interweaves basic research with which contributions to the advancement of the technologies is leveraged.
