SEMINAR 18th March: Danaë Stanton Fraser - Towards humans and robots in public space

Publication date:

Wednesday, 18th March 3pm, Chadwick 2.18

Abstract:

I will start my talk by providing a brief overview of current projects within the CREATE Lab. I will then focus on our work within the EPSRC Being There project. Being There is examining the social and technological aspects of being able to appear in public in proxy forms. Our work at Bath is particularly exploring trust in communication. I will discuss a recent study we carried out on tele- present handshaking and also the involvement of a creative cohort as part of our impact plan throughout the project.

SEMINAR 11th March: Raymond Bond - Human Computer Interaction in Healthcare: Current Work and Opportunities

Publication date:

Wednesday, 11th March 3pm, Chadwick 2.18

Abstract:

This presentation will provide an overview of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) research studies that have been carried out by Ulster University.  The presentation will focus on HCI research within the healthcare domain. At Ulster, we have developed HCI systems for patients to encourage the self-management of chronic diseases as well as interactive user interfaces for medical professionals. We believe optimal HCI in healthcare can help both the patient and the physician. 1) The patient will only likely engage with good HCI (for example – if they are required to continuously record their own vital signs in the home – currently branded as connected health) and 2) the physician can make better decisions more efficiently and accurately with optimal HCI. As a result of our recent studies in this area, we are launching a commercial User Experience Laboratory (UX-Lab), which will allow enterprises to empirically evaluate their products using state of the art usability testing equipment which entail psycho-physiology sensors (eye tracking, electro-dermal activity, heart rate variability etc.) to derive biometrics for objectively determining the user experience. In addition to evaluating the usability of medical devices and software, we have also evaluated the usability of medical (diagnostic) images and signals. For example, we recorded the eye gaze and scan path of world leading cardiologists whilst they read the 12-lead electrocardiogram and we have also analysed eye gaze patterns from radiographers whilst they interpreted X-RAY images. Such studies will be discussed in this presentation. In summary, I will provide a brief overview of previous work and make predictions about future HCI research in healthcare (which may include natural and intelligent [adaptive] user interfaces for the patient, nurse and the doctor).
