Tre aksepterte artikler til HCI International
Forskergruppe for interaksjonsdesign er del av den 20. internasjonale konferansen i human-computer interaction (HCII) denne sommeren med tre aksepterte fulle artikler. Alle tre publikasjoner vil finnes etterpå i Springer Lecture Notes i Computer Science (LNCS).
Harald Holone skrev i samarbeid med Trenton Schulz og Jo Herstad fra Oslo Universitet en artikkel om “Privacy at Home: an Inquiry into Sensors and Robots for the Stay at Home Elderly”.
Sammendrag: “The elderly in the future will use smart house technology, sensors, and robots to stay at home longer. Privacy at home for these elderly is important. In this exploratory paper, we examine different understandings of privacy and use Palen and Dourish’s framework to look at the negotiation of privacy along boundaries between a human at home, the robot, and its sensors. We select three dilemmas: turning sensors on and off, the robot seeing through walls, and machine learning. We discuss these dilemmas and also discuss ways the robot can help make the elderly more aware of privacy issues and to build trust.”
Susanne Stigberg sendte inn en invitert artikkel med tittelen "Music at your Fingertips: Designing Mobile Interaction Interfaces for Runners”.
Sammendrag: “The paper presents a technique to simplify the making of mobile interaction interfaces. We often use smartphones while moving, resulting in non-optimal or even unsafe mobile interactions. Better interactions need to be created with locomotion in mind and experienced in context. Consequently interactive behavior of mobile devices cannot be sketched, but must be made to be experienced. Making mobile prototypes is time-consuming and requires programming literacy. It often involves the making of an input artifact; establishing a connection between artifact and mobile phone; and implementing an application on the mobile phone for exploring the interactive behavior. The use of commercial smartphone automation tool eliminates the need for reimplementing available smartphone functionalities, and invites non-programmers into the process of making mobile interaction interfaces. To illustrate the proposed technique I present a case study of a wearable prototype to control music on the mobile phone by tapping one’s fingertips.”
I samarbeid med Oslo Universitet sendte Klaudia Carcani inn en artikkel om “Exploring Technology Use in Dance Performances”.
Sammendrag “The objective of the paper is to critically reflect on how research through design (RtD) can be used to gain knowledge of a new design context within HCI. We use the design research triangle presented by Fallman  as the framework for analyzing and to reflect upon the RtD process. The design context to which this new knowledge was applied to is within the area of dance and technology. Our design inquiry, therefore, using the term we coined – addhance, seeks to either add a sort of novel experience, or enhance a dance performance. We, thus, taking an RtD approach, explored how the dancers could compose music by moving their bodies. We designed a Kinect based system that captures dancer’s movements and translates them into music. Intending to addhance the choreography, enlighten dancers’ movements and bring a new disrupted workflow of both creating and enjoying a dancing performance.”
