Direct Finger Touch for Human-computer Interaction

Abstract: Crossing has arguably become an important paradigm in human-computer interaction such as mouse input, stylus input, direct finger touch and remote display interaction. Yet its interactive potentials have not been fully explored. In this talk, I will present some of our recent crossing-based studies to show how to leverage the expressiveness of crossing for interface design. First I will introduce the use of crossing-based selection in virtual reality. I will also talk about applying the crossing paradigm to moving target selection. In addition, I will introduce distractor effects on crossing-based interaction. I will conclude my talk with future directions of crossing-based interaction.

User Experience and Quality in Use

Abstract: Target are self-driving car and autonomous system. Firstly, presents issues and requirements for self-driving cars by UX and safety management. And the next, introduces a Quality in Use model which corresponds to stakeholder needs. Quality in Use model include “dependability” and “acceptability”, So I explain the relationship between UX about self-driving car and quality in use model.

Mindful Inclusion: Designing Technologies for Diversity and Inclusion

Abstract: To design inclusive technologies for marginalized/vulnerable population, HCI researchers have primarily focused on understanding their difficulties and designing technologies to fulfill their needs. While this is a promising approach to support the population, previous works have shown that people in this category tend to be overwhelmed by handling their own issues, and have limited bandwidth to adapt to novel technologies. Meanwhile, people around them, who normally have more bandwidth to adapt to novel technologies, are often willing to help, but do not know how and when to provide support. To fill this gap, I propose a novel approach, “mindful inclusion,” which aims to induce support from surrounding people to individuals with disabilities. In this talk, I discuss the potential/challenge of this approach by introducing a few case studies.


Bio: Naomi Yamashita is a primary researcher at NTT Research Labs in Kyoto, working in the field of Human-Computer Interaction and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods, she aims to uncover the nature of human interaction and to design novel communication technologies for better well-being, diversity, and inclusion. Some tools developed in the projects are used daily by a growing number of users (e.g., machine translation tools to support globally distributed teams; an app that helps family caregivers better cope with their depressed family members). She is also an active member of the research community. She serves on Program Committee chairs of top-tired conferences ACM CHI (2020, 2021) and ACM CSCW(2022). She is also a guest editor for the Journal of Collaborative Computing and Work Practices “Living Through a Crisis: Special Issue on How COVID-19 Has Transformed the Way We Work, Learn, and Live” and a steering committee member of Microsoft "New Future of Work" Summit.

HCI & Accessibility - lessons learned from two projects to improve the quality of life of deaf and hard of hearing people

Abstract: The talk will focus on summarizing two recently conducted study results. The first study is based on designing and evaluating a haptic stimulus start system for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) people, whereas, the second is a preliminary study to understand the effect of emoji-based text representation for the DHH people during voice-only online meetings through leveraging an emoji-based captioning system. The study results provide comprehensive implications for designing inclusive user interfaces.

Things That Make Us Happy: Towards Human-Engaged Computing

Abstract:Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a field of design that influences the user through a designed artifact. The user's experience of the artifact can bring happiness to the user. From this perspective, the relationship between designer, artifact, and user is indirect, and the user's happiness depends on the user's subjective experience regarding the artifact. The current question of our research group is: can we give happiness to users more directly through an artifact, or can we design an artifact that approaches more directly to human nature?" In this talk, I will introduce some of our recent projects relating to this research question.
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) はデザインの領域であり,デザインされた成果物をとおして,そのユーザに影響を与える.その成果物にかかわる体験によって,ユーザは幸福感を得ることができる.この観点において,デザイナと成果物,ユーザとの関係は間接的であり,ユーザが幸福感を得られるかどうかは,個人的な使用体験に委ねられている.「ユーザに対して,もっと直接的に幸福を与えられないだろうか,あるいは,人間の本質にもっと直接的に関わる人工物がデザインできないだろうか」これが,私たちの研究グループの現在の問いである.本講演では,直近で取り組んでいる研究プロジェクトを紹介する.

Brain and Driving Performance

Abstract: In Japan, where the ratio of ≥65 aged persons to the total population is predicted to remain the highest in the world until 2060, measures against dangerous driving performance of the elderly are an urgent and long-term national issue. Based on the research strategy of "Driving performance is controlled by the brain, therefore, the brain is examined", we have showed that leukoaraiosis, a common magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) finding and ischemic lesions in the brain, representing aged brain is a brain factor regulating driving performances from the analyses of the MRI examination data in the brain healthy check-ups, which is one of preventive medicine uniquely having developed in Japan. Furthermore, I will introduce a research scheme in which measures for aging brains lead to prevention from traffic crashes for elderly drivers, that is, healthy brain contributes to maintenance of safety driving.

Selection and Manipulation in 3D User Interface

Abstract: This lecture addresses the critical area of 3D UI design - a field that seeks to answer detailed questions that make the difference between a 3D system that is usable and efficient and one that causes user frustration, errors, and even physical discomfort. I present practical information for developers, the latest research results, easy-to-follow guidelines for the UI designer, and relevant application examples.
I intend to integrate both theory and practical information. Theory-related content includes the following:
• The psychology and human factors of various 3D interaction tasks
• Information on different approaches for the evaluation of 3D UIs
• Results from empirical studies of 3D interaction techniques
• A research agenda for 3D interaction
Practice-related content includes the following:
• Principles for choosing appropriate input and output devices for 3D systems
• Details and helpful tips for the implementation of common 3D interaction techniques
• Guidelines for the selection of interaction techniques for common 3D tasks
• Case studies of 3D UIs in real-world applications
The objective of this lecture is to help you design usable 3D UIs. This lecture is based on the textbook, 3D User Interfaces – Theory and Practice.


Bio: Kibum Kim is currently an associate professor in the Division of Media, Culture, and Design Technology at College of Computing in Hanyang University ERICA. Before joining Hanyang University, he was an assistant professor at the Department of Game and Mobile Engineering at Keimyung University from 2016 to 2018. Before that, he was a research professor at Chuncheon National University of Education from 2014 to 2016. He was also an assistant professor at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction at Kochi University of Technology, Japan from 2012 to 2014. Before moving to Japan, he was an adjunct assistant professor in the School of Computing in Queen's University, Canada. Before that, he was a senior human interaction research engineer at the Applied Research Center in Motorola Labs located in a Chicago suburb for 4 years. He got his Ph.D. from Virginia Tech, Master from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Bachelor's from Korea University Seoul, all in Computer Science. For his dissertation work, he studied how small handheld screens could be used for collaborative learning by sharing the visual context in real time between a group of people.
At Hanyang University, he currently integrates these core research experiences into solutions to overcome the significant challenges blind people face when interacting with Extended Reality (i.e., AR/VR/MR/XR).
