CS 7340: Theory and Methods in Human Computer Interaction
Lecture - 4 credits
- Covers the foundations of human abilities, computational artifacts, design, and evaluation.
- Human computer interaction concerns the design and evaluation of software based on a deep understanding of how humans interact with computers, devices, and sensors.
- The field merges theories from psychology and computer science, using methods from AI and design.
- Introduces cognitive, perceptual, and affective theories and theories of individual differences that allow us to design and develop better computer software and systems.
- Also covers research methods for designing and evaluating computer software systems.
- Topics discussed in the context of next-generation interaction modalities include sensors, haptics, wearables, and performative interfaces.
- Students who do not meet course restrictions may seek permission of instructor.
