Human-Computer Interaction

I am teaching  Human Computer Interaction (CSE 463 / SER 594) this Summer (2020). I taught it before in Spring (2019).

This course is designed to introduce students in computer science and software engineering to principles of HCI, an interdisciplinary area concerned with the study of the interaction between humans and interactive computing systems. It reviews major cognitive and social phenomena surrounding human use of computers with the goal of understanding their impact and creating guidelines for the design and evaluation of software and physical products and services. It explores the principles of cognitive and affective states recognition, interaction design and relevant software design techniques.

Students will conduct a semester-long team project to explore HCI research methods and tools. Finally they will apply artificial intelligence to enhance the design and to develop adaptive software systems.
