Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is easy to define yet difficult to predict. Encompassing the management, study, planning, and design of the ways in which users interact with computers, this field has evolved from using punch cards to force touch in a matter of decades. What was once considered science fiction is now ubiquitous. The future of HCI is mercurial, yet predictions point to the effortless use of high-functioning services.
The Handbook of Research on Human-Computer Interfaces, Developments, and Applications is primarily concerned with emerging research regarding gesture interaction, augmented reality, and assistive technologies and their place within HCI. From gaming to rehabilitation systems, these new technologies share the need to interface with humans, and as computers become thoroughly integrated into everyday life, so does the necessity of HCI research. This handbook of research benefits the research needs of programmers, developers, students and educators in computer science, and researchers.
Reviews and Testimonials
Computer scientists and electrical engineers examine interfaces between humans and computers from the perspectives of gesture interaction, augmented reality with special attention to applications in education, and assistive technologies with a special emphasis on technologies related to navigation and wellness. Among the topics are remote gripping for effective bilateral teleoperation, interacting with augmented reality mirrors, using a design science research approach to develop a human-computer interface artifact for designing web interfaces, a robotic assistive system: developing a model based on an artificial intelligence technique, and identity assurance through electroencephalograph recordings.
