Animal-Computer Interaction: Shifting Perspectives in a World of Ubiquitous Computing

Location: Meeting Room 10, 2nd Floor, JLB
Time: 12:30pm - 13:45pm
Speaker(s): Dr Clara Mancini

Over the past year and a half, the Department of Computing has been pioneering the new research area of Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI), which is rapidly developing through partnerships with academia, industry and non-governmental organisations; publications and events in internationally leading venues; a PhD studentship; internal and external funding. But what is ACI? And what does ACI research involve? In this session, I will give an introductory talk about ACI and its current developments (Minding Animals 2012), and a more detailed talk about arecent study on dog tracking, and its effects on both humans and dogs, which explores some of ACI's theoretical and methodological implications (Ubicomp 2012 best paper nomination).
