The HCII Seminar Series that was to be held on Wed, October 24, with speaker Alaina Hardie has been cancelled for personal reasons. We will plan to reschedule her visit for next semester.
The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing has recognized a 2002 paper on usable programming systems co-authored by Brad A. Myers, professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and two of his students, as the joint winner of the Most Influential Paper of one decade ago.
Justine Cassell will formally receive her appointment as the Charles M. Geschke Director of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) during a Sept. 10 ceremony at Carnegie Mellon University. The director’s post has been newly endowed by Charles M.
Chris Harrison, a Ph.D. student in Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) who develops new ways for people to interact with digital devices, particularly when they are on the go, has been recognized by MIT’s Technology Review as one of the world’s top 35 innovators under the age of 35.
Ken Koedinger, professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute and director of the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center, will present the keynote address, “Bridging the Gap Between Psychological Science and Educational Practice,” at the American Psychological Association annual convention Aug. 2 in Orlando, Fla.
Innovation in computing will be essential to finding real-world solutions to sustainability challenges in such areas as electricity production and delivery, global food production, and climate change, according to the report of a National Research Council committee that included Jennifer Mankoff, associate professor in the Human-Computer Interactio
A doorknob that knows whether to lock or unlock based on how it is grasped, a smartphone that silences itself if the user holds a finger to her lips and a chair that adjusts room lighting based on recognizing if a user is reclining or leaning forward are among the many possible applications of Touché, a new sensing technique developed by a team at Disney Research, Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Mellon University.
People who have already sifted through online information to make sense of a subject can help strangers facing similar tasks without ever directly communicating with them, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Microsoft Research have demonstrated.
Online communities are among the most popular destinations on the Internet, but attempts to create social networking sites often meet with failure. In a new book, Carnegie Mellon University’s Robert E.
The millions of “check-ins” generated by foursquare, the location-based social networking site, can be used to create a dynamic view of a city’s workings and character, Carnegie Mellon University researchers say.
A vibrating steering wheel is an effective way to keep a driver’s eyes safely on the road by providing an additional means to convey directions from a car’s navigation system, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and AT&T Labs have shown.
The Human-Computer Interaction Institute’s Mobile and Immersive Learning for Literacy in Emerging Economies, or MILLEE, project has been named a 2012 Laureate in the Computerworld Honors Program. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.
Faculty members in Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science (SCS) and College of Fine Arts (CFA) are the first recipients of a pair of professorships for junior faculty that have been endowed by Eric Cooper, a former computer science professor, founder of FORE Systems Inc., and Carnegie Mellon trustee, and his wife, community volunteer Naomi Weisberg Siegel.
Twitter users choose the microblogs they follow, but that doesn’t mean they always like what they get. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Georgia Institute of Technology found that users say only a little more than a third of the tweets they receive are worthwhile.
Devices in hand, a group of students lucky enough to get into one of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute’s newest classes are already hard at work. They are learning the art of iPad programming.
But they aren’t the only ones.
Charles M. Geschke, co-founder of Adobe Systems Inc., and his wife, Nancy, have endowed the directorship of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) in Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science (SCS). Mr. Geschke earned his Ph.D. in computer science at Carnegie Mellon in 1973.
