Designing Interactions for Enhancing Collaborative Learning and Decision Making
A talk about novel multi-device and AR systems, designed and implemented in Dr. Orit Shaer's Human-Computer Interaction lab, to enhance co-located collaborative learning and decision making in various settings ranging from museums to meeting rooms. She will also present new research methods, developed to investigate the impact of such systems on the behavior of individuals and groups.
Designing in-vehicle interfaces: From manual driving to the mobile office
With recent advances in automated vehicles, there is increased attention for user interactions as they relate to creating a place for work and play during a trip. Given that it is unlikely that most vehicles will be fully automated in the near future, there are also significant efforts to understand how to help the driver switching between different modes of automation. In this talk, Professor Kun will provide a brief review of these areas of research.
