Defence in the field of computer science, Janne Laine, M.Sc.(Tech.)
Janne Laine, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "From visual perception to user experience: measurement and modeling" on Friday 9 November 2018 at 12 noon at Aalto University Haukilahti high school auditorium, Tekniikantie 3, Espoo. This thesis is about understanding and molding visual perceptions and user experiences through psychometric experiments and mathematical modeling.
This work applies color appearance models to predict and control the colors we perceive on digital screens seen in varying ambient lighting conditions. The Experience Mapping approach and the Experience Map diagrams described, developed, and applied in this work use data analytics to describe and visualize the perceived and experiential differences between given products, services, prototypes, concepts, or brands. The approach provides a new perspective and tools for communicating relevant information about users and customers in iterative experience-centered design processes.
