  Funology 2: from usability to enjoyment (2nd ed.)
Blythe M., Monk A., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2018. 561 pp.  Type: Book (978-3-319682-12-9)

This was an unusual book for me to review, far removed from my comfort zone of developer environments and programming languages. This book is purely about human-computer interaction (HCI). It consists of 35 distinct essays, averaging a...

  A systematic literature review on intelligent user interfaces: preliminary results
Gonçalves T., Kolski C., de Oliveira K., Travassos G., Grislin-Le Strugeon E.  IHM 2019 (Proceedings of the 31st Conference on l’Interaction Homme-Machine, Grenoble, France, Dec 10-13, 2019) 1-8, 2019.  Type: Proceedings

Designers of user interfaces often face a fundamental dilemma: how much of the underlying functionality of the system should they expose to the user? An experienced user may want direct access to most, or all, of the functionality, whi...

  Self-healing UI: mechanically and electrically self-healing materials for sensing and actuation interfaces
Narumi K., Qin F., Liu S., Cheng H., Gu J., Kawahara Y., Islam M., Yao L.  UIST 2019 (Proceedings of the 32nd Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology, New Orleans, LA, Oct 20-23, 2019) 293-306, 2019.  Type: Proceedings

Compared to living things like animals or plants, today’s electronic devices are quite fragile. Even minor “injuries” render them incapacitated, or limit their functionality. Sometimes they can be repaired...

   Systematic automation of scenario-based testing of user interfaces
Campos J., Fayollas C., Martinie C., Navarre D., Palanque P., Pinto M.  EICS 2016 (Proceedings of the 8th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems, Brussels, Belgium, Jun 21-24, 2016) 138-148, 2016.  Type: Proceedings

In May 2016, the driver of a Tesla Model S equipped with the autopilot feature was killed when his vehicle crashed into a tractor-trailer [1]. Tesla confirmed that the vehicle’s autopilot was active and that its brakes were n...

  Modelling perception using image processing algorithms
Biswas P., Robinson P.  BCS-HCI 2009 (Proceedings of the 2009 British Computer Society Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Cambridge, UK, Sep 1-5, 2009) 494-503, 2009.  Type: Proceedings

A visual perception model that predicts visual search time is discussed in this paper. Of specific interest to the authors is a model that can be utilized for both disabled and able-bodied people. The experiment used to gather data for...

  Creating a lightweight user interface description language: an overview and analysis of the personal universal controller project
Nichols J., Myers B. ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction 16(4): 1-37, 2010.  Type: Article

For many decades, it has been a dream of computer scientists to build user interfaces by using very simple language constructs that would describe both design and functionality, in a device-independent way. This paper describes the aut...
