Students Co-Author Paper Presented at International Conference


Four Hamilton students were co-authors of a paper accepted for presentation at the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing held May 7-12 in Vancouver, B.C. “This is Your Brain on Interfaces: Enhancing Usability Testing with Functional-Near Infrared Spectroscopy,” was written by seniors Samuel Hincks, Matthew Russell and Thomas E. Williams, as well as Rachel Ward ’12. The other writers were Stuart Hirshfield, the Stephen Harper Kirner Professor of Computer Science; former Research Associate Leanne Hirshfield ’02; Rebecca Gulotta of Carnegie Mellon University and Robert Jacob of Tufts University.

 

The paper presents the results of research that used EEG and functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) equipment to study patterns and levels of trust, suspicion and frustration with various computer interfaces.

 

According to the conference website, “The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of human-computer interaction. CHI 2011 focuses on leveraging our diversity and connecting people, cultures, technologies, experiences, and ideas.”
