On body and Out of body Interactions

Abstract: Mobile devices have become ubiquitous over the last decade, changing the way we interact with technology and with one another. Mobile devices were at first personal devices carried in our hands or pockets. They are now changing form to fit our lifestyles and an increasingly demanding amount and diversity of information to display. My research focuses on the design, development, and evaluation of novel interaction techniques with mobile devices using a human-centered approach.

In this presentation, I will in particular focus on two types of mobile devices: wearables and drones. I will discuss the use of multiple modalities to interact with technology and in particular how haptics on wearables can support long-term tasks without interrupting the user’s attention. I will then discuss how autonomous devices such as drones re-invent our understanding of ubiquitous computing and present my current research on collocated natural human-drone interaction.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Jessica Cauchard is an assistant professor in Computer Science and Communication at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya in Israel. Her research focuses on Human-Computer Interaction. Previously she worked as a postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University. Jessica’s research focuses on novel interaction techniques for mobile, and ubiquitous computing. She completed her PhD at the University of Bristol, UK in 2013 in Human-Computer Interaction. She received a Magic Grant for her work on interacting with drones by the Brown Institute for Media Innovation in 2015.
