Welcome to the Consumer Computing Laboratory. CCL is a laboratory at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb.
The goal of Consumer Computing Laboratory is bootstrapping consumer-centered innovations in application development. Innovation and creative thinking is a defining feature of human intelligence, but the majority of humanity is limited in expressing their ideas through application development. This is due to a burden imposed by application development paradigms that require knowledge of specific technologies and processes that fail to deal with what while not abstracting the how.
Artificial intelligence in a symbiotic relationship with the plural wisdom of the crowd represents a mechanism that needs to be put in service of human intelligence and assist consumer innovation during application development. Only then will human intelligence of a much larger population of ICT consumers be able to express its individual and unique creativity and innovation in application development.
Creating a productive application development environment for consumer-centered innovation requires joint effort and strong interdisciplinary research of techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and theories from a variety of academic disciplines including formal, social and natural sciences, as well as humanities. That is why the laboratory established a new research discipline called consumer computing and is initiating the creation of a global Consumer Computing R&D Network.
