Optimizing Teams

Esports data analytics

Every single esports players generates tons of data every time they play. We are looking into the pile of data and find a patterns out of it. We are interested in finding out the secret of victory, cooperation of players, communication behaviors, and any other type of human behavior of esports players.

cognitive studies

Studying cognition in teams is hard. Experiments can be hard to control and natural teamwork can be hard to observe. At the Esports Research Lab, we study team cognition in League of Legends, because it offers a context in which teams of five -- working and communicating much like naval navigators, air traffic controllers, and NASA mission controllers -- naturally perform classic cognitive tasks in pursuit of common goals.
