Human-Centered Computing

Presented by ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science

The HCC Workshop is a collection of hands-on activities that demonstrate the research that the Human-Centred Computing Research group carries out at ANU. Human-Centred Computing uses the latest technology to explore computer-human interactions to make computers 'think ahead', and be responsive in their interactions with humans. We want computers to understand what users' want when they perform specific tasks, and to enhance their user experience.

In the HCC Workshop, students will be able to play with some of the latest technology that we use in our research, such as having their eye gaze tracked. Students will have the opportunity to play games and have fun learning about leading research in an exciting blend of different fields such as computing, art, science, music, security, psychology, social network analysis, digital humanities and biologically inspired computing.
