1 Introduction to HCC and HCM

2 Human Centered Computing Philosophical-humanistic position regarding the ethics and aesthetics of a workplace Any system that enhances human performance Software design process that results in interfaces that are really user-friendly

3 HCC HCC research focuses on all aspects of human-machine integration Humans with software Humans with hardware Machine-Machine interaction e.g. software agents.

4 Scope of HCC Goes way beyond user friendly interfaces. Uses 5 technologies in a synergesic way. Natural interaction, automation, individualized information access, collaboration and customization. Core of HCC system and algorithm design process Socially and culturally aware. Directly augment or consider human abilities. Be adaptable. HCC Application Qualities Act according to the social and cultural context in which they were deployed. Integrate input from different types of sensors and communicate through a combination of media. Allow access by a diversity of individuals.

5 Scope of HCC - Academia HCC doctoral program at Georgia Tech Bridge gap between technology and humans. Integrating concepts from anthropology, cognitive sciences, sociology psychology with computing and computer science. HCC consortium at UC Berkley Guide the future development of computing so as to maximize its value to society. Institute of human and machine cognition at Florida.


7 Multimodal Interface Technology Collaborative Science Dialogue Systems Human-System Modeling Brahms Apex-GOMS Agent-Based Decision Systems Mars Exploration Rovers HCS Tasks Intelligent Launch and Range Operations Integrated Mission Operations for ISS

8 HCC at NASA - Human-System Modeling technical area focuses on computational modeling of distributed groups (scientists, engineers, astronauts, and mission operations personnel) interacting with advanced autonomous and robotic systems

9 HCC at NASA – Decision Systems DS capabilities include software tools for intelligently acquiring, representing, managing, sharing, and interacting with scarce or valuable knowledge

10 HCC at NASA – Multimodal Interface Technology Technical area integrating humans, computational devices, and environments in a seamless manner, leveraging the unique capabilities of each to satisfy system-level requirements MI technologies speech and natural language interfaces multimedia systems adaptive and intelligent interfaces displays, ubiquitous computing, and mobile and wearable computing

11 HCC at NASA – Multimodal Interface Technology

12 Approaches to Human-Centered Software Development

13 HCM – Human Centered Multimedia Three key factors in the development of future computing systems: culture integration of sensors and multiple media. access outside the desktop by a wide range of users.

14 HCM…. Multimedia technologies are key in accessing the world’s resources, particularly if we extend our notion of multimedia to what it really is— A combination of digital, analog, spatial, and sensory inputs and outputs. This leads to ubiquitous computing.

15 HCM – Cultural Factors Cultural factors plays an important role in human–human communication because the way we generate signals and interpret symbols depends entirely on our cultural background The contrast is even greater in film: colors, music, and all kinds of cultural signals convey the elements of a story. Consider the differences between Bollywood and Hollywoodmovies (colors, music, story structure, and so on). Content is knowledge, and to make this knowledge widely accessible, we must develop culture specific automatic analysis techniques.

16 HCC, HCI, and Human Computation HCC - conceived as a theme that is important for all computer-related research. HCI - The study of interaction between people and computers. It is often regarded as the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design and several other fields of sciencebehavioral sciencesdesignother fields Interaction between users and computers occurs at the user interface (or simply interface), which includes both software and hardwareuser interfacesoftwarehardware

17 HCC, HCI, and Human Computation Human Computation The computer asks a person or a large number of people to solve a problem, then collects, interprets, and integrates their solutions

18 HCC and human-based computation approach computing from two different perspectives, they both try to maximize the synergy between human abilities and computing resources. Can this synergy be really possible, and if it is then can we really create a ….
