UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of March: Audrey Girouard (Carleton University, Ottawa). Deformable and wearable devices: Leveraging new devices for more tangible interactions.

UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of March: Audrey Girouard (Carleton University, Ottawa). Deformable and wearable devices: Leveraging new devices for more tangible interactions.
Deformable and shape-changing devices offer users the ability to physically manipulate objects to interact with them, which in turns can offer new interaction techniques to users. When wearable, devices can integrate on the body or on clothes to make this interaction more ubiquitous. These devices…

UCLIC Research Seminar 13th of January: Stefanie Mueller (MIT). Advancing Personal Fabrication by Making Physical Objects as Reprogrammable as Digital Data

UCLIC Research Seminar 13th of January: Stefanie Mueller (MIT). Advancing Personal Fabrication by Making Physical Objects as Reprogrammable as Digital Data
Computing has revolutionized how we process and interact with data today, unfortunately, these capabilities are constraint to the digital realm and cannot yet be applied to physical matter. For instance, today, we can already quickly update the appearance of a digital photo by applying a filter or…

UCLIC Research Seminar 25th of November: Katarzyna Stawarz (Cardiff University). Integrating the Digital and the Traditional to Deliver Therapy for Depression: A User-Centred Design Study

UCLIC Research Seminar 25th of November: Katarzyna Stawarz (Cardiff University). Integrating the Digital and the Traditional to Deliver Therapy for Depression: A User-Centred Design Study
Traditional approaches to psychotherapy emphasise face-to-face contact between patients and therapists, while current computerised approaches tend to minimise this contact. This can limit the range of mental health difficulties for which computerised approaches are effective. In this talk, Kathy…

UCLIC Research Seminar 14th of October: Praminda Caleb-Solly (Bristol Robotics Laboratory). Connected and Collaborative – designing assistive robots to change the dynamics of health and social care.

UCLIC Research Seminar 14th of October: Praminda Caleb-Solly (Bristol Robotics Laboratory). Connected and Collaborative – designing assistive robots to change the dynamics of health and social care.
Assistive robots offer the potential to transform people's ability to manage their own health, particularly those with the greatest need and lack of adequate support. Our research is exploring how connecting robots with different types of sensors can provide real-time information to not only…

UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of June: Amid Ayobi (University College London and University of Bristol). Trackly: A Customisable and Pictorial Self-Tracking App to Support Agency in Multiple Sclerosis Self-Care

UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of June: Amid Ayobi (University College London and University of Bristol). Trackly: A Customisable and Pictorial Self-Tracking App to Support Agency in Multiple Sclerosis Self-Care
Self-tracking is for many people an important part of understanding and managing their health and wellbeing. However, predefined self-tracking approaches can impede people's self-care agency. In this talk, I will share the findings of our recent CHI paper that addresses this issue. We investigated…
