QLila Europe's First Live-In-Lab

The Quantitative Live-In-Lab (QLiLa), established by Prof. Faisal in Kulmbach focuses on deploying artificial intelligence (AI) methods to address health-related questions while seamlessly integrating them into everyday life. The interdisciplinary and international team includes researchers from engineering, computer science, nutrition science, and neuroscience fields. Their collective aim is to analyze human behaviors and develop new technologies that support a long, healthy, and independent life.

The concept of a 'Live-In-Lab,' also known as a 'Reallabor' in German, translates the scientific and technical laboratory concept into an apartment setting. Rather than conducting scientific experiments in abstract settings such as laboratories or hospitals, the vision is to examine and treat individuals using digital methods in their everyday lives.

Our Research Focus


We record or obtain data on behavior in real-world environments, to fully capture the variance and richness of natural human actions.



We take a data-driven approach to analyse the high-dimensional data we record, often across complex action spaces.


We ​build data-driven models from these datasets, to gain insight into human behavior in both health and disease.
