Seminar: Post-Desktop User Interfaces SS 2019

Intelligent User Interfaces

 

Course information:

This seminar will cover current topics connecting HCI and machine learning. How can intelligent systems improve the interaction with a device? Topics will range from voice controlled systems to image recognition to adapting UIs. The focus will be on the interaction with intelligent systems rather than the technical foundations of machine learning.

Mandatory kick-off meeting:

Course Aim:

After having achieved a general overview of the area of Human-Computer Interaction, this seminar will provide students with an idea of the current research topics that are being tackled in the research community. After the seminar, students will have some in-depth knowledge about one current area of HCI, and will have heard talks about numerous others. The seminar also provides students with an opportunity to refine their scientific writing and presentation skills, and since the topics are assigned to groups of two students each, it is also another chance to learn how to work efficiently as a team.

Quotes From Past Student Feedback:

"The discussion of the presentation style and drawbacks was really useful so one can improve his skills, and now I find presentations with less text and images just amazing. :) I have completely changed my opinion of what a good presentation looks like." — Anonymous student feedback, 2011.
"I really liked the extensive feedback on the presentation. I feel like I really learned a lot from this feedback and I know what to work on in future presentations now. Also, the rather rigid structure of the seminar was very good. My weaker self didn't like all the deadlines but after all it helped actually dividing the amount of work over the whole semester." — Anonymous student feedback, 2011.

Topics

This seminar deals with topics in HCI that go beyond the desktop. In groups of two, you will work on one of the topics listed below. The topics will be assigned in the kick-off meeting. We provide starting papers for each topic.
The topics this year will be about the interaction with intelligent UIs. This includes interaction with autonomous vehicles, the interaction with virtual assistants, and recognizing lies as well as understanding how an intelligent system reaches its conclusion.

Submission Milestones

All submissions have to be sent to the supervisor until 12:00 (noon) via mail. Include the tag [PDUI] and the name of the topic as well as the milestone (e.g., "[PDUI] Explainable AI, Report Outline").

Literature Review

List of 7+ topic-related research papers with a contribution and benefits statement stating the contribution type each with a consistent storyline on how these papers are related to each other.

Report Outline

Clear structure of the final paper submission. What is the storyline you want to convey? How are you introducing the topic? What are the arguments you are providing? How are you connecting the papers to each other and your arguments?

First Report

This is the first complete draft of your seminar paper (10 content pages in the ACM Journal Template). We expect you to submit a version which you consider complete. No spelling mistakes, a closed argumentation, a complete bibliography, including all figures. The better your submission the better the feedback we can provide. If we need to fix spelling mistakes we have less time for in-depth feedback.

You can download the template or set up a collaborative Latex project using Overleaf. In both cases, make sure that you use the "Journal Small" documentclass: \documentclass[acmsmall]{acmart}

Slides

The first complete version of your presentation slides (Powerpoint, Keynote, Prezi, ....). The same applies as for the First Report. Hand in slides which you would confidently use for a presentation on the next day.

Camera-ready Slides

The next version of your presentation slides that include your supervisor's feedback. You will get even more in-depth feedback again for these slides.

Presentation (50% der Note)

The presentation in front of the other students and your supervisor. We expect a well-prepared presentation. Test your talk at least once in the room where you are going to present to familiarise yourself with the equipment and test your slides on the beamer in the room. The presentation time will be 20 minutes followed by a 20 minutes discussion where you will get feedback and questions from your supervisor and your peers. We encourage a constructive feedback interaction where you can learn from each other and have a fun conversation on how to improve your presentation style.

Final Report (50% der Note)

Your final submission of your seminar paper. You have time during the presentation week to include your supervisor's feedback.
