Research seminar at DVMT September 22, Dipak Surie: Egocentric Interaction for Ambient Ecologies

Speaker: Dr. Dipak Surie
Title: Egocentric Interaction for Ambient Ecologies

Abstract: Ambient ecologies demand novel interaction paradigms that enable designers and product developers to frame and manage the dynamic and complex interaction between humans and objects of interest in smart places. While traditional approaches have typically adhered to a device-centric stance inherited from mobile and stationary interactive devices, egocentric interaction offers an alternative approach, taking human body and mind as the centre of reference in facilitating interaction. This talk will present use cases where egocentric interaction was applied to technology development, interaction design and innovation.

Dipak Surie is a researcher and teacher in the field of ubiquitous computing and interaction design with a PhD degree from Umeå University. He is currently working at Malmö University, giving courses within the information architecture program. His research interests include exploring novel interaction paradigms for facilitating complex and dynamic human interactions in smart places.
