New Frontiers of Assistive Augmentations

Speaker:  Suranga Chandima Nanayakkara – Auckland, New Zealand
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


The overarching topic of this lecture is centred on the design and development of novel human computer interfaces that seamlessly integrate with a user’s mind, body and behaviour, providing an enhanced perception. We call this ‘Assistive Augmentation.’ Creating such Assistive Augmentations poses a twofold challenge as they require a novel input and interactions as well as a holistic design approach. Inspired by insights from physiology, neuroscience, emerging electronic devices, computational methods and design thinking approach, we have an unprecedented opportunity to design a new generation of Assistive Augmentations. This talk will present several proof of concept Assistive Augmentations for enhancing human I/O in the focus areas of assistive technologies, novel input strategies, smart health and well-being, and interactive learning technologies.
