University Libraries Presents: STEM Speaker Series, Dr. Xiaojun Bi
Computational Interaction in Post-PC Computing
SBU Libraries is very pleased to announce its fourth lecture in the spring 2018 STEM Speaker Series presented by Dr. Xiaojun Bi, Department of Computer Science.


In the current Post-PC computing era, new computing technologies such as mobile computing, wearable computing, augmented and virtual reality have emerged, which bring wicked challenges to interaction between humans and information technology. To address these challenges, designers must consider a multiplicity of problems from low-level hardware, through software, all the way to human factors. In this talk I will introduce a new perspective, which was introduced in our recently published book Computational Interaction, on how to design software user interfaces and interaction technology. It is an approach that focuses on the use of algorithms and mathematical models to explain and enhance interaction between humans and information technology. I will particularly introduce how to apply this approach to enhance text-based communication on mobile and wearable devices, and solve touchscreen interface design problems.
