56 New disciplines and genres of computing ubiquitous computing pervasive computing context-aware computing mixed / augmented reality attentive user interfaces wearable computing sensor networks information appliances tangible user interfaces alternative input and output devices cooperative buildings smart homes smart furniture / clothes consumer robotics …

57 Mark Weiser Xerox Parc Source: Mark Weisers UbiqCom web site Ubiquitous Computing - many computers per person It is invisible, everywhere computing that does not live on a personal device of any sort, but is in the woodwork everywhere. Its highest ideal is to make a computer so embedded, so fitting, so natural, that we use it without even thinking about it. invisible designed to fit exploits our everyday participation in the world

58 Hiroshi Ishii MIT Media Lab Source: Hiroshi Ishii publications Tangible Computing gives physical form to digital information, seamlessly couple the dual worlds of bits and atoms From painted to tangible bits input: grasp and manipulate output: change physical properties of object

59 Embodied Interaction People create, manipulate and share meaning by the way they engage with the world everyday routines situated actions surrounding environments surrounding people … Source: Dourish web site The systems we use are embedded in systems of social meaning, fluid and negotiated between us and those around us… Users create and communicate meaning through their interaction with the system (and with each other…)

60 Situated Computing Exploits our everyday participation in our world physicality placement in space affordances proximity is out here with us is in many small and large places, including trivial ones Source: Mark Weisers UbiqCom web site

61 Domestic Computing A new opportunity for computing that stresses social engagement personal environments social routines, coordination, relationships vs. tasks It is not just the home!

62 Domestic Computing The domestic vs. work context the home its furnishings its artifacts home inhabitants routines coordination methods individual activities social activities social sphere Revisit last few slides in this context Source: Mark Weisers UbiqCom web site

63 Context-Aware Computing Context as information … characterizes a situation of a person, place or object relevant to the interaction between a user and an application olocation oidentity ostate and activities of people, groups ostate of computational and physical objects Context-aware computing uses contextual information to oselectively present information and services oautomatically execute a service oattach context information for later retrieval Source: Dey, Abowd and Salber, HCI Journal 2001; Image from Hong and Landay (Berkeley)

64 Is HCI ready for this?
