Dr Rebecca Fiebrink is currently a Senior Lecturer in Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is the original creator of Wekinator, an open source software project that allows users to build new interactive systems by demonstrating human actions and matching them to computer responses, instead of writing code.
Accompanied by her students and research assistants, Fiebrink works on projects that develop technologies that enable new forms of human expression, creativity, and embodied interaction.
Dr Fiebrink’s work draws on, and contributes to, fields such as human-computer interaction, machine learning, and signal processing with an aim to allow people to apply machine learning more effectively to new problems, such as the design of new digital musical instruments and gestural interfaces for gaming and accessibility.
She is affiliated with the Embodied AudioVisual Interaction (EAVI) group.
