As well, here are the slides for topic #2, The Computer, 02-TheComputer.pdf. We are not yet finished this topic, but I thought it might be useful to post the slides now. They might be updated as we work our way through this topic.
Finally, click here to download a zip file containing the Java programs BuildKeystrokes, KSPCWords, and T9, which were demo’d in class last Thursday. A number of people have asked for these programs, so here they are. There are a few supporting files as well. To use these, first do a compile all (javac *.java). For each program, there is command-line help to get you started. Also the word-frequency dictionary file, d1-wordfreq.txt (or something equivalent) is required. It is contained in the zip. Recall that using the T9 program requires you to first build a word-freq-keystroke file using BuildKeystrokes. Good luck.
Jan 16, 2012 – Click here to download the results of the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory we completed in class last Thursday.
Jan 10, 2012 – Assignment #1 now posted. See the main course web page or click here.
Jan 5, 2012 – Here are the slides for topic #0: Historical Perspective, 00-HistoricalPerspective.pdf.
As mentioned in class, your homework is to download and read a recent paper from the ACM SIGCHI Conference Proceedings. Pick a paper on any topic you find interesting. I’ll ask each person to say a few things about their paper on Tuesday. To download a paper, go to the ACM Digital Library, click on “Proceedings” and then search for “SIGCHI” until you find the links for the “Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems” (the formal name for the CHI conference).
Jan 3, 2012 – Please try to read the handout (“Historical Perspective”) before Thursday’s class. Also, if you spot any typos or errors in the handout, please make annotations on the handout and show these to me. A number of typos or errors have already been pointed out to me – greatly appreciated. See you Thursday.
