A short history of Human Computer Interaction: a people-centred perspectiveSpeaker: Geraldine Fitzpatrick – Vienna, Austria
Topic(s): Human Computer Interaction
AbstractHuman Computer Interaction (HCI) has always been concerned with designing technologies and interactions from a people-centred perspective. However what this means has changed radically over the years - each new wave of computing technology brings different challenges for interpreting what aspects of H (human), C (computer) and I (interaction) matter. In this talk, I will present a broad-brush history of HCI, showing its roots in the middle of the 20th century and charting how its concerns, methods and related inter-disciplinary connections have evolved as new technologies evolve and move from the basement, into the office and on the desktop, and now into everyday life. I will reflect more broadly on the challenges this entails for the intersection between computing paradigms and research paradigms.
