About CHIL

The CHIL Project (Computers in the Human Interaction Loop) is an Integrated Project (IP 506909) under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme.

The objective of this project is to create environments in which computers serve humans who focus on interacting with other humans as opposed to having to attend to and being preoccupied with the machines themselves.
