OVERVIEW

The course introduces the concepts of Human-Computer Interaction that allow designing effective systems for users' needs both from the point of view of the simplicity of interaction and the naturalness of the use (fundamental aspects in the biomedical field). Programming and computer vision techniques are presented for the realization of advanced interaction systems. Furthermore, interaction evaluation is introduced: design of experimental sessions and data analysis.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course introduces the concepts of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) to design effective systems for user needs both from the point of view of simplicity of interaction and the naturalness of the system's use as a whole. Attendance and active participation in the proposed training activities and individual study will enable the student to: know the theoretical tools to design advanced interaction systems; use the theoretical and practical tools for the realization of advanced interaction systems; develop the skills to operationally apply the concepts learned in the virtual and augmented reality

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Final assignment and oral exam.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Details on how to prepare for the exam and the degree of depth of each topic will be given during the lessons. Through the monographic project, the student must demonstrate that he/she is able to develop simple systems of interaction in virtual and augmented reality environments. The oral exam will verify the actual knowledge of the theoretical topics learned during the semester.
