Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Panel

4:30 PM – 6:00 PM Sunday, April 16, 2017

The fast growth of contemporary production and services, majorly operated by complex computer system, imposes a critical challenge on the interaction between human and technologies. Undesirable interface design will lead to uneasy operations, causing inefficiencies and even accidents. Therefore, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), the study of interfaces between human and computer that aligns design study, behavioral science and computer science, greatly impacts the establishment of a convenient modern human life. Carnegie Mellon University has long been reputed for its strength in computer science and design studies. In 2017, the 6th CMU Summit opens the HCI panel to connect the academia to the industry. We will discuss about the research concepts and real-world applications of HCI.
