For most researchers outside of the field, Human Computer Interaction (or HCI) is the study and evaluation of interactive systems and techniques. While this is an important part of our discipline, nowadays HCI is as much about “building” the underlying technologies and systems as it is studying their use. In this talk I will demonstrate why it is an exciting time to be a computer science researcher in this discipline. You can play with the newest technologies, such as exotic cameras, displays and sensing hardware; readily embrace approaches outside of your discipline (e.g. within computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, or computer graphics); and even invent technologies and algorithms along the way. However, ultimately, you'll build working systems that are grounded by real-world problems that have direct impact on users.
