Progressivity for Voice Interface Design (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Fischer, J. E., Reeves, S., Porcheron, M., & Sikveland, R. O. (in press). Progressivity for Voice Interface Design. doi:10.1145/3342775.3342788

Drawing from Conversation Analysis (CA), we examine how the orientation towards progressivity in talk--keeping things moving--might help us better understand and design for voice interactions. We introduce progressivity by surveying its explication i... Read More

From director's cut to user's cut: to watch a brain-controlled film is to edit it (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Ramchurn, R., Martindale, S., Wilson, M. L., & Benford, S. (2019). From director's cut to user's cut: to watch a brain-controlled film is to edit it. In CHI '19: proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systemsdoi:10.1145/3290605.3300378

Introducing interactivity to films has proven a longstanding and difficult challenge due to their narrative-driven, linear and theatre-based nature. Previous research has suggested that Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) may be a promising approach but... Read More

Sensory Alignment in Immersive Entertainment (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Marshall, J., Benford, S., Byrne, R., & Tennent, P. (2019). Sensory Alignment in Immersive Entertainment. doi:10.1145/3290605.3300930

When we use digital systems to stimulate the senses, we typically stimulate only a subset of users' senses, leaving other senses stimulated by the physical world. This creates potential for misalignment between senses, where digital and physical stim... Read More

Failing with style: designing for aesthetic failure in interactive performance (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Hazzard, A., Greenhalgh, C., Kallionpää, M., Benford, S., Veinberg, A., Kanga, Z., & Mcpherson, A. (in press). Failing with style: designing for aesthetic failure in interactive performance. In CHI '19 Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Glasgow, Scotland UK — May 04 - 09, 2019 doi:10.1145/3290605.3300260

Failure is a common artefact of challenging experiences, a fact of life for interactive systems but also a resource for aesthetic and improvisational performance. We present a study of how three professional pianists performed an interactive piano co... Read More
