The 8th HCI SI conference took place on Friday, January 26, 2024, hosted at the University of Maribor, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The program delved into a diverse array of topics within the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). These included investigations into methods for evaluating driver’s situational awareness and enhancing the precision of proximity sensors for vehicle parking assistance, utilising augmented reality for visualizing human anatomy, enhancing digital content with 3D-printed physical counterparts, improving the learning process of piano improvisation, and various other subjects. The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Elisabeth Lex from Graz University of Technology. Her presentation, titled “Trustworthy Recommender Systems,” provided attendees with insights into how recent research and emerging regulations in AI technologies impact ethical considerations such as bias, fairness, and privacy in the development of recommender systems.
Happy to present the HCI SI 2023 keynote speaker Elizabeth Lex. Elisabeth is a Computer Science professor at Graz University of Technology, where she heads the Recommender Systems and Social Computing Lab. Her main expertise includes machine learning, data science, recommender systems, and natural language processing.
Recommender systems play a pivotal role in shaping our digital experiences, influencing the content we see online, the products we consider purchasing, and the entertainment choices we make, such as which movies to watch. The increased adoption of deep learning technologies in recommender systems, while enhancing their effectiveness, has also raised substantial concerns regarding their transparency and trustworthiness. Critical issues such as bias, fairness, and privacy are increasingly coming under scrutiny, both in public discourse and academic research. In response, there’s a growing momentum in developing recommender systems that are not only efficient but also uphold these ethical standards.
In this talk, we will discuss recent work to address concerns of bias, fairness, and user privacy in recommender systems and briefly touch upon recent regulatory frameworks to govern AI technologies.
Call to Action
Mark your calendars and don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights from a leader in AI and recommender systems. Join us to explore how we can shape a more trustworthy digital future.
On Tuesday, November 29th 2022, the 7th HCI SI conference was held at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering. The program covered many interesting topics in the field oh HCI, from in-vehicle human-machine interaction in (semi)automated vehicles, analysis of human physiological and psychological responses during various tasks, exposure to various multimedia content, the use of machine learning for the analysis and modeling of human behavior to user interfaces and applications based on virtual and augmented reality. It also featured a presentation on the EU H2020 HADRIAN project, numerous insights from the project results and two keynotes from its partners, dr. Paolo Pretto and dr. Alexander Mirnig.
This is just a kind reminder to register for the conference NOW if you have not done so already. The registration is free of charge, but necessary.
The detailed program and information about the venue are available here!
The conference will be held in-person. Although, as some authors experienced difficulties with their travelling arrangements for Ljubljana, the Program Committee decided to enable them to present their work online.
