Publication: Brain and Body Interfaces: Designing for Meaningful Interaction

The brain and body provide a wealth of information about a person's physiological, cognitive and emotional states. There is an increasing trend to use physiological signals in computerised systems as an input control, and as entry level physiological sensors become more widespread, physiological interfaces are liable to become more pervasive in our society (e.g., through mobile phones). While these signals offer new and exciting means for controlling interactive systems, little questioning has been done whether or not these physiological interfaces are appropriate for applications and to what extent the end-user finds the interaction meaningful. This workshop sets out to bring together re-searchers working in the psychophysiological interaction field for discussing the nature of making physiological interactions meaningful for users.

Projects

Affective Computing
Evaluation of a user's emotional experience with technology is not well understood, especially when the primary goal of a technology is to entertain (e.g., computer game) or to invoke an emotional experience (e.g., animated film).
