Scaffolding a Methodology for Situating Cognitive Technology Within Everyday Contexts

  title={Scaffolding a Methodology for Situating Cognitive Technology Within Everyday Contexts},
  author={Michael Heidt and Madlen Wuttke and Peter Ohler and Paul Rosenthal},
Cognitive technology is leaving the lab and entering the world of the everyday. Systems such as knowledge navigators, conversational agents, and intelligent personal assistants are increasingly incorporated into real-world systems. This success of cognitive technologies poses novel methodological challenges for interdisciplinary teams tasked with their development. In order to behave successfully within the variegated conditions of the everyday, systems have to be developed within processes of… 

HCI International 2020 – Late Breaking Papers: Interaction, Knowledge and Social Media: 22nd HCI International Conference, HCII 2020, Copenhagen, Denmark, July 19–24, 2020, Proceedings

Results showed a significant relationship between task submission rate and platform design, including interaction strategies, task ambiguity and task instruction design, calling for more studies of crowdsourcing design to inform better strategies for various aspects of platform design.

Examining Interdisciplinary Prototyping in the Context of Cultural Communication

It is argued that interdisciplinary communication processes can be improved upon by further theorising the differences between disciplinary cultures by providing a tentative set of communicative and methodological tools aimed at improving the communicative process in these scenarios.

Where the Action Is - The Foundations of Embodied Interaction

This book addresses the philosophical bases of human-computer interaction and looks in particular at how tangible and social approaches to interaction are related, how they can be used to analyze and understand embodied interaction, and how they could affect the design of future interactive systems.

Interaction design gone wild: striving for wild theory

Interaction designers, with less technical expertise and modest resources, can conjure, create, and deploy a diversity of prototypes in all manner of places in the everyday world. The outcome of

The Three Paradigms of HCI

The underlying unity of a third wave in HCI is demonstrated, and how these waves suggest the centrality of currently marginal criteria for design, evaluation, appreciation, and developmental methodology in CHI work is documented.

Towards a Vocabulary of Prototypes in Interaction Design - A Criticism of Current Practice

A methodological framework and a constructivist meta theory for formulating a vocabulary of prototype characteristics in interaction design are presented. Motivation for this research approach is

Diverse Ecologies - Interdisciplinary Development for Cultural Education

It is argued that the problem at hand calls for a highly interdisciplinary design process and a set of tentative methodological elements aimed at informing adequate interdisciplinary development processes are outlined.

What we talk about when we talk about context

This paper suggests that the representational stance implied by conventional interpretations of “context” misinterprets the role of context in everyday human activity, and proposes an alternative model that suggests different directions for design.

Making epistemological trouble: Third-paradigm HCI as successor science

Thoughtful Interaction Design: A Design Perspective on Information Technology

This book serves to provide a bridge from design to IT, and is important because designers increasingly work with information technologists and epistemologically their worlds are quite different.

Framing complexity, design and experience: A reflective analysis

The paper concludes with the need to reframe concerns in design in order to emphasise situated participation, non-rational design strategies, in situ design and a re-orientation in focus from tasks to experience.
