  • Activity Theory in HCIby Victor Kaptelinin; Bonnie Nardi

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    Activity theory -- a conceptual framework originally developed by Aleksei Leontiev -- has its roots in the socio-cultural tradition in Russian psychology. The foundational concept of the theory is human activity, which is understood as purposeful, mediated, and transformative interaction between human beings and the world. Since the early 1990s, activity... more...

  • HCI Theoryby Yvonne Rogers

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    Theory is the bedrock of many sciences, providing a rigorous method to advance knowledge, through testing and falsifying hypotheses about observable phenomena. To begin with, the nascent field of HCI followed the scientific method borrowing theories from cognitive science to test theories about user performance at the interface. But HCI has emerged... more...

  • Vision-Based Interactionby Matthew Turk; Gang Hua

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 50.00

    In its early years, the field of computer vision was largely motivated by researchers seeking computational models of biological vision and solutions to practical problems in manufacturing, defense, and medicine. For the past two decades or so, there has been an increasing interest in computer vision as an input modality in the context of human-computer... more...

  • Adaptive Interactionby Stephen J. Payne; Andrew Howes

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 35.00

    This lecture describes a theoretical framework for the behavioural sciences that holds high promise for theory-driven research and design in Human-Computer Interaction. The framework is designed to tackle the adaptive, ecological, and bounded nature of human behaviour. It is designed to help scientists and practitioners reason about why people choose... more...

  • User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routinesby Estefanía Martín; Pablo A. Haya; Rosa M. Carro

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines is motivated by the need to bring attention to how people with special needs can benefit from adaptive methods and techniques in their everyday lives. Assistive technologies, adaptive systems and context-aware applications are three well-established research fields. There is, in fact, a vast amount of... more...

  • Eye Gaze in Intelligent User Interfacesby Yukiko I. Nakano; Cristina Conati; Thomas Bader

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    Remarkable progress in eye-tracking technologies opened the way to design novel attention-based intelligent user interfaces, and highlighted the importance of better understanding of eye-gaze in human-computer interaction and human-human communication. For instance, a user’s focus of attention is useful in interpreting the user’s intentions,... more...

  • Lehrbuch Digitaltechnikby Jürgen Reichardt

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 1,114.00

    Dieses Lehrbuch führtdie wesentlichen Sprachelemente von VHDL Schritt für Schritt parallel zu den Grundkenntnissen zum digitalen Schaltungsentwurf ein und versetzt den Leser in die Lage, einfache digitale Systeme zu verstehen und zu entwerfen. more...

  • Cultural Differences in Human-Computer Interactionby Rüdiger Heimgärtner

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 84.00

    Es wird eine Methode zur Bestimmung von quantitativ klassifizierenden kulturellen Variablen der Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion (MMI) präsentiert und in einem Werkzeug für die interkulturelle Interaktionsanalyse umgesetzt. Rüdiger Heimgärtner zeigt, dass MMI anhand der kulturell geprägten Interaktionsmuster des Benutzers automatisch an dessen kulturellen... more...

  • Coverbal Synchrony in Human-Machine Interactionby Matej Rojc; Nick Campbell

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 129.95

    Embodied conversational agents (ECA) and speech-based human?machine interfaces can together represent more advanced and more natural human?machine interaction. Fusion of both topics is a challenging agenda in research and production spheres. The important goal of human?machine interfaces is to provide content or functionality in the form of a dialog... more...
