Title: Ubiquitous User Interfaces
Displays are all around us, on and around our body, fixed and mobile, bleeding into the very fabric of our day to day lives. Displays come in many forms such as smart watches, head-mounted displays or tablets and fixed, mobile, ambient and public displays. However, we know more about the displays connected to our devices than they know about us. Displays and the devices they are connected to
are largely ignorant of the context in which they sit including knowing physiological, environmental and computational state. They don't know about the physiological differences between people, the environments they are being used in, if they are being used by one or more persons.
In this talk I review a number of aspects of displays in terms of how we can model, measure, predict and adapt how people can use displays in a myriad of settings. With modeling we seek to represent the physiological differences between people and use the models to adapt and personalize designs, user interfaces. With measurement and prediction we seek to employ various computer vision and depth sensing techniques to better understand how displays are used. And with adaptation we aim to explore subtle techniques and means to support diverging input and output fidelities of display devices. This talk draws on a number of studies from work published in UIST, CHI, MobileHCI, IUI, AVI and UMAP.
Professor Aaron Quigley is the Chair of Human Computer Interaction in the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, UK. He is visiting the University of Primorska until March 24th. Aaron is the ACM SIGCHI Vice President for Conferences (and former ACM SIGCHI Adjunct Chair for Specialised Conferences). Aaron's research interests include surface and multi-display computing, human computer interaction, pervasive and ubiquitous computing and information visualisation. He has published over 160 internationally peer-reviewed publications including edited volumes, journal papers, book chapters, conference and workshop papers and holds 3 patents. In addition he has served on over 80 program committees and has been involved in chairing roles of over 20 international conferences and workshops including UIST, ITS, CHI, Pervasive, UbiComp, Tabletop, LoCA, UM, I-HCI, BCS HCI and MobileHCI.
The lecture is a part of Monday's seminar on Computer and Information Science organised by DIST departments from UP FAMNIT and UP IAM.
