MDBF Webinarları – Doç. Dr. James Eagan
Mühendislik ve Doğa Bilimleri Fakültemizin düzenlediği webinar serisi kapsamında 1 Nisan Cuma saat 14.00’te Institut Polytechnique de Paris’ten Doç. Dr. James Eagan, “Building a Better Bicycle for the Mind” başlıklı bir sunum yapacak.
Zoom üzerinden gerçekleşecek etkinlik ilgilenen herkesin katılımına açıktır.
Özet: Steve Jobs once described the computer as “a bicycle for the mind,” a tool that amplifies people’s cognitive capabilities. My work focuses on making this bicycle a better, more expressive tool for humans in a data-rich world: by understanding how people interact with and make sense of data, by making interactions more flexible and expressive, and by rethinking how we build software so users can appropriate and adapt it to their own idiosyncratic needs. In this talk, I will present an overview of my lab’s work in these three areas.
Konuşmacı Hakkında: James Eagan is an Associate Professor (Maître de conférences) and head of the Design, Interaction, Visualisation & Applications (DIVA) group at Télécom Paris and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. His research in the fields of human-computer interaction and information visualisation is generally organized around three themes: making software more malleable, using information visualisation to help people better make sense of data, and increasing the expressiveness of the tools people use to do so.
He is also chair of the MS Big Data program at Télécom Paris and the Interaction, Graphics, and Design Master’s program at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. Before joining Télécom Paris, he was a post-doctoral researcher at LRI (CNRS & Université Paris-Sud). He holds a Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and a B.A. in Mathematics/Computer Science from Lawrence University.
