The SAMS project is developing software tools for analyzing logs of computer use and email to detect possibly early signs of dementia/ Alzheimer’s disease in older users. Data and text mining tools analyse usage logs to detect changes in usage patterns and errors that map to clinical indicators of dementia in behaviour patterns, memory errors and language use. So far requirements analysis has been completed and specification is in progress. This presentation focuses on the UI design problem- how to persuade people to take follow up diagnostic tests and self refer themselves to medical experts if the system detects signs of potential dementia. The problem is first how to deliver emotionally upsetting messages and then to persuade people to take appropriate action. The problem will be framed with reference to Fogg’s model of persuasive technology and Reeves-Nass CASA framework. The preliminary results from the requirements mock ups exploring design options will be given, then I want to open the debate on a critical design question- how can one be sure that the opinions users express at design time will match with their actions when presented with the real system ? Some ideas from decision making theory can used to frame the discussion. If time allows I have a further UI design problem to discuss- data visualization matching N analysis variables (from DM/TM) to M clinical indicators to help medical experts derive a diagnostic model from the analysis variables
Bio: Professor Alistair Sutcliffe retired from the University of Manchester in October 2011; however, he continues his research as a visiting professor in University College London and as a Research Fellow on the EPSRC SAMS Project and visiting professor in the University of Lancaster. He has been principle investigator on numerous EPSRC, ESRC and European Union projects. His research interests span a wide area within Human Computer Interaction and Software Engineering. In HCI particular interests are theory and models of user experience, interaction design, social media and design of complex socio-technical systems. In software engineering he specialises in requirements engineering methods and tools, scenario based design, knowledge reuse and theories of domain knowledge. He has over 250 publications including five books and several edited volumes of papers. He was awarded the IFIP silver core in 2000 and a Lifetime Achievement Award by the IEEE Requirements Engineering community in 2011.
