Abstract

The UCL Interaction Centre is an interdisciplinary research group with roots in the Psychology and Computer Science Departments of UCL. Research focuses on the cognitive, affective, social and physical aspects of human-computer interaction, including such topics as: sensemaking, information work and digital libraries; design practice; collaborative learning; experiences of novel interaction; and affect, emotion, and subjective experience. In this presentation we will focus on the work of a subset of the researchers, who use and/or develop cognitive models to understand human-computer interaction. This work roughly focuses around three themes: human errors, visual search and strategic adaptation in multitask settings.
