A broad understanding of digital technologies is of utmost importance in the information era. How do we make sure that humans stay in the loop in a socially sustainable way as societies become ever more digitalised?
Human-Computer Interaction and Design
Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID) is a crucial research area examining the intersection of computing, interaction technologies and human-centred design research. HCID engages transdisciplinary approaches to conducting critical research, design, development and evaluation of current and novel technologies, behaviors, processes, models, practices and experiences among human, artificial and non-human entities, while examining the impacts on people, society and ecology. It draws from emerging research, scholarship and practice across disciplines including computer science (computation, software engineering, machine learning, AI, interaction design), cognitive science, psychology, sociology, anthropology, media, arts, design, learning/education, ethics, and public policy, among others.
Johanna Kaipio, Professor of Practice, ventured onto the path of technology as a result of an interest in psychology, mathematical subjects and medicine in upper secondary school. Now, as a researcher of health and social care information systems, Kaipio brings these elements together.
