Title : Striving toward ubiquitous and life-immersive interactive computing
Abstract : With the recent advances of mobile and ubiquitous computing technology, we are now having a number of opportunities to create novel interactive applications fit to people’s daily life and specific needs. In this talk, I will share my experiences in designing and implementing novel interactive systems and applications, including mobile hand gesture interaction platform, exergaming platform for swimmers, and games for anxiety reduction using living plants. This talk will highlight several lessons learned from these design, implementation and evaluation processes, from the perspectives of mobile systems and human-computer interaction (HCI).
Short Bio : Taiwoo Park is an Assistant Professor in Department of Media and Information of Michigan State University. He received Ph.D. from Computer Science Department of KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) in 2014. Dr. Park explores mobile and ubiquitous interactive application and system design, from the viewpoint of user experience and motivation. He believes that true pervasive computing should begin from closely scrutinizing moments of people’s daily and social life, and among these moments, he enjoys to find ‘sweet spots’ to be interweaved with cutting-edge technologies. His recent works have been presented at several premier conferences including ACM CHI, MobiSys, SenSys, UbiComp, and CSCW.
