End-User Development for Personalizing Applications, Things, and Robots

Speaker:  Fabio PaternĂ² – Pisa, Italy
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


The pervasiveness of ICT technologies has led to a growing need to empower people to obtain applications that meet their specific requirements. End-User Development (EUD) is a growing research field aiming to provide people without programming experience with concepts, methods and tools to allow them to create or modify their applications. Recent mainstream technological trends related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and the availability of robots have further stimulated interest in this approach.
In this talk, I discuss the historical evolution of EUD, then analyse the main current challenges with respect to recent technological trends (IoT and social robots) through the use of some conceptual dimensions, and conclude with a discussion of a possible research agenda for the field.
