OpenHCI 2013 Closing Address

  1. 1. On (Re-)Positioning HCI - My Ongoing Reflection - Hao-Chuan Wang . 王浩全 Department of Computer Science Institute of Information Systems and Applications National Tsing Hua University at OpenHCI Workshop 2013, July 5, 2013
  2. 2. Wang A Poster from CHI 2012 - “CHI – 30 years of Creation, Evolution, and Intelligent Design” 2
  3. 3. 3
  4. 4. Wang Creation, Evolution and Intelligent Design Creation • OpenHCI as a successful case • Great creativity from student designers! Evolution • Diversity • Sophistication Intelligent Design • Collaboration • Bridging what need to be done socially and what can be done technically. 4
  5. 5. Wang HCI Isn’t New, Neither Homogeneous (Grudin, 2011) 5
  6. 6. Wang Where Should We Place HCI? Art? Business? Design? Engineering? Humanities? Sciences? Social Sciences? … 6
  7. 7. Wang Ontological Classification as Persistent Human Habit 7
  8. 8. Wang However, Classification Can Be Arbitrary 8
  9. 9. Wang Possible Ways Out • Pluralism- Multiple labeling • HCI isn’t belonging to just one discipline. • Interdisciplinarity- HCI is the combination of all (design, CS, engineering, social sciences, etc.). • HCI can and should grow in a variety of colleges, and maybe with different emphases and styles. This is what we are doing. • Emergentism- Emergent area • HCI evolves from multiple disciplines but isn’t belonging to any of them. • Emergent properties- the whole is not the sum of the parts. • HCI is itself a discipline. This is what we should probably pursue next. 9
  10. 10. Wang 10 “It's not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change” - Charles Darwin, 1809 - 1882
  11. 11. Wang Thank You! See You Next Year! 11
