 Designing With Discomfort
발표 시간 :
 2016. 1. 27(수) 15:00 ~ 16:00

Abstract :
The traditional tenets of HCI are grounded in making the user’s interactions with computers as comfortable – efficient, ergonomic, satisfying, legible and predictable – as possible. However, as HCI increasingly turns its attention to cultural uses of computing, from highbrow arts to mainstream entertainment, so the game is changing. Our experience of artworks is often far from comfortable. Our engagements with games and sports may push our minds and bodies to the limit. I will therefor set out an argument for deliberately and systematically designing with discomfort in order to deliver powerful cultural experiences. I will identify the potential benefits of uncomfortable interactions under the general headings of entertainment, enlightenment and sociality. I will review a series of artworks and performances that have deliberately employed discomfort to create unusually powerful and provocative interactive experiences. By reflecting on these and other examples, I will articulate a suite of tactics for engineering four primary forms of discomfort in interactive experiences - visceral, cultural, control and intimacy. I will reveal how moments of discomfort need to be embedded into an overall experience which ultimately resolves them, requiring a further consideration of the dramatic acts of exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and dénouement. Finally, I will consider an ethical framework for designing uncomfortable interactions, revisiting key ethical issues such as consent, withdrawal, privacy and risk.

Bio :
Steve Benford is Professor of Collaborative Computing in the Mixed Reality Laboratory at the University of Nottingham. His research explores unusual interactions for cultural and creative experiences and involves working with artists to create, tour and study interactive performances from which he generalises provocative design concepts. He has received best paper awards at the ACM’s annual Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) conference in 2005, 2009, 2011 and 2012 and been awarded the 2003 Prix Ars Electronica for Interactive Art, the 2007 Nokia Mindtrek award for Innovative Applications of Ubiquitous Computing and received four BAFTA nominations. He was elected to the CHI Academy in 2012. His book Performing Mixed Reality was published by MIT Press in 2011. He has previously held an EPSRC Dream Fellowship and been a Visiting Professor at the BBC in 2012 and a Visiting Researcher at Microsoft Research in 2013.

발표 주제 :
 Five challenges for personal fabrication
발표 시간 :
 2016. 1. 28(목) 11:00 ~ 12:00

Abstract :
"I believe that computer science and mechanical engineering are about to unite. In the future, users will build machines and solve mechanical problems by digitizing the involved objects using 3D scanners, solving the problem in the digital domain using the means of computer science, and converting the result back to the mechanical domain using a 3D printer. This will allow solving mechanical problems with the effectiveness and efficiency of computer science. This will not only change mechanical engineering, but also allow computing to reach its next phase, which is to merge into matter itself, where the physical matter of objects will also perform the computation. In this talk, I will take a closer look at this unification process and try to point out the five grand challenges it brings for researchers in the field of human-computer interaction and in particular personal fabrication"

Bio :
Patrick Baudisch is a professor in Computer Science at Hasso Plattner Institute at Potsdam University and chair of the Human Computer Interaction Lab. After a long history in natural user interfaces, mobile devices, and touch input, his current research focuses on interactive fabrication. Previously, Patrick Baudisch worked as a research scientist in the Adaptive Systems and Interaction Research Group at Microsoft Research and at Xerox PARC. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. He was inducted into the CHI Academy in 2013 and has been an ACM Distinguished Scientist since 2014.

발표 주제 :
 What happened at the Darpa Robotics Challenge
발표 시간 :
 2016. 1. 29(금) 09:00 ~ 10:00

Abstract :
The DARPA Robotics Challenge, which was motivated by nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Japan, in 2011,
consisted of increasingly demanding two competitions, DRC trail and DRC final, over two years.
The goal was to accelerate progress in robotics for humans and mitigate the impacts of natural or man-made
disasters. The DRC Finals competition challenged participating robotics teams and their robots to complete a
difficult course of eight tasks relevant to disaster response, among them driving alone, walking through rubble,
tripping circuit breakers, turning valves and climbing stairs.

25 teams from worldwide participated in this demanding challenges but only three of them completed the
mission in the specified time limit, one hour. Even the first place winner, team KAIST, took 44 minutes to
complete. Many teams struggled a lot in operating their robots. Most of the robot experienced real ‘disastrous’
situation as falling down before entering the disaster scene or during the tasks. Some of them were from
mechanical failure, the others were from operator’s mistakes or from bipedal walking difficulties, etc.

Prof. Jun Ho Oh will review the DRC final process and discuss about what the difficulties were, what happened
and what we learned from the challenge. He will also explain some details and winning strategy about the
robot ‘DRC Hubo’.

"This is the end of the DARPA Robotics Challenge but only the beginning of a future in which robots can work alongside people to reduce the toll of disasters,"
- Arati Prabhakar, DARPA Director -

Bio :
Prof. Jun Ho Oh received his B.S. and M.S. degree from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea in 1977 and 1979,
respectively. After short working at Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute as a researcher from 1979 to 1981,
he received Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering in the field of automatic control at U.C., Berkeley in 1985.
He is now a distinguished professor of mechanical engineering and the director of Humanoid robot research
center(Hubo Lab) at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

He performed many industry and government research projects in motion control, sensors, microprocessor
applications, and robotics, etc. He is especially interested in mechatronics and system integration.
In the recently ten years, he completed unique humanoid robot series KHR-1, KHR-2, Hubo and Hubo 2.
And he also developed Albert Hubo and Hubo FX-1. Recently, he leaded team KAIST and won Darpa
Robot Challenge final as first place at Pomona, Ca, USA in 2015.
He is currently studying to improve the performance of humanoid robot for faster and more stable walking,
robust robot system integration and light weight design, etc. He is a member of ASME and IEEE.
And he also is the member of the National Academy of Engineering of Korea.
