Dave Robb demonstrating to Samsung

Last week MACS Computer Scientists Professor Mike Chantler, Dr Stefano Padilla and Dave Robb attended the CHI conference in Seoul, South Korea.

The conference, pronounced ‘kai', was attended by around 3,000 researchers and is the world's leading conference in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Held by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), CHI has been attracting the world's leading researchers and practitioners in the field of HCI for over 30 years.

As well as showcasing their latest technology to fellow scientists and companies such as Samsung, the team presented two pieces of work; “Crowdsourced Feedback With Imagery Rather Than Text: Would Designers Use It?” and “What to Study in HCI? A Reflection Based on CHI and UK Research Data”.

The conference provides the opportunity for businesses and universities to share ground-breaking research and innovations related to how humans interact with digital technologies. The CHI conference presents a highly selective showcase of the very best advances across the disciplines of computer science, cognitive psychology, design, social science, human factors, artificial intelligence, graphics, visualization, multi-media design and other disciplines.
