The author discusses the existing theoretical approaches of semiotically informed research in HCI, what is useful and the limitations. He proposes a radical rethink to this approach and offers a different view of interaction from that of most HCI experts.
This introduction to the concepts and methods of information visualization illustrates how to pictorially represent structured and unstructured data. The book’s focus is on the human aspects of the process, rather than the algorithmic or graphic design.
Because formal education cannot meet all learning needs, community learning is vital. In 2005, a group of multidisciplinary scholars met for a workshop on learning in communities, and this book is a compilation of papers that emanated from that workshop.
From holes in space and telepresence to mobile technologies and online communities, media spaces crystallize socially-aware networked media-rich computing. This book provides perspectives on this fast-moving field.
In our complex times, simple, powerful systems are an ideal of interaction design. This book traces the development of Minimalism, defines the four types of Minimalism in interaction design, and considers various applications of them.
This book explores the application of machine learning techiques to problems of classification, showing how they can be decomposed into much simpler sub-problems, and demonstrating how this approach often leads to improved classification performance.
Here is a different approach to pattern recognition systems, in which users of a system are involved during the recognition process, and examines a range of advanced multimodal interactions between machine and users, including handwriting, speech and gesture.
This book details what system developers need to know and need to be able to do in order to develop usable new multimodal applications. It covers the theory of modalities and multimodality and presents nine key multimodal usability parameters.
