Description

Using a scientific and engineering approach to human-computer interaction, this text explores both the theoretical foundations and the application models that are available for predicting important engineering parameters. It covers four major modelling approaches - empirical, predictive, anthropomorphic, and cognitive, outlining step-by-step procedures applying each model. It also discusses how to perform experiments on human-computer interaction research, and presents recent research on applications in virtual reality, visualization of data, and the application of networks to interface design.show more
