ACM SIGCHI Curricula for Human-Computer Interaction : 2. Definition and Overview of Human-Computer Interaction Last updated: 2009-07-29 Accesses since 1997-04-17: 885,996 Table of Contents 2.1 Definition of HCI {p. 5} There is currently no agreed upon definition of the range of topics which form the area of human-computer interaction. Yet we need a characterization of the field if we are to derive and develop educational materials for it. Therefore we offer a working definition that at least permits us to get down to the practical work of deciding what is to be taught: Human-computer interaction is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surrounding them. From a computer science perspective, the focus is on interaction and specifically on interaction between one or more humans and one or more computational machines. Take the notion of machine. Or consider what is meant by the notion human. 2.2 Field of HCI {p. 8} 2.2.1 Historical Roots {p. 8} 2.2.2 Likely Future Developments {p. 10}

Usable Web Trends in interactive design 2013 HCIRN: Human-Computer Interaction Resource Network Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union. The Cahiers du cinéma consistently ranked his films on their top ten annual lists. Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, "Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream." And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, "I love all of Tarkovsky's films. I love his personality and all his works. Shot between 1962 and 1986, Tarkovsky's seven feature films often grapple with metaphysical and spiritual themes, using a distinctive cinematic style. You can now watch Tarkovsky's films online – for free. NOTE: If you access the films via YouTube, be sure to click "CC" at the bottom of the videos to access the subtitles.

Media studies, mobile augmented reality, and interaction design Authors: Jay Bolter, Maria Engberg, Blair MacIntyre You are walking in the Sweetwater Creek State Park near Atlanta and using the Augmented Reality (AR) Trail Guide, a mobile application designed by Isaac Kulka for the Argon Browser (Figure 1). The application offers two views: a now familiar Google-style map, with points of interest marked on its surface, and an AR view, which shows these points located in space. You see the map view when you hold the screen parallel to the ground; when you turn the phone up to look at the world, you get the AR view with the points of interest floating in space in front of you. This simple gesture of raising the phone changes your relationship to the information. You pass from a fully symbolic form of representation to a form of perceiving symbolic information as part of your visual environment. Media Studies and Aesthetic Design Media studies is a historical, humanities-based approach to understanding the role of media in our culture. AR Browsers
