Prof Sine McDougall (Professor in Psychology, Bournemouth University)

Title: Accessing meaning, usability and user experience: What eye tracking might and might not tell us in the healthcare context.

HCI and Digital Health: Technologies and Opportunities in China and UK

The workshop, hosted by iTalkTone Lab, Bournemouth University and Newford Research Institute of Advanced Technology (NRIAT, China), is a satellite meeting to the British HCI 2016 Conference and will be held in Bournemouth University on 12th, July.

This workshop initially aims to review the current digital heath technologies and explore their potentials in real world.  Under the umbrella concept of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), EEG, eye-tracking and social assistive robot are three incentive technologies we are investigating. Relevant business models and investment opportunities between China and UK will be introduced as well.

locked_in_syndrome

Without any assistive communication tool, locked-in syndrome patients are suffering from “nightmarish qualities, robbed of all function and trapped in a body in which you can’t communicate.” – Dr Mark Delargy,director of the brain injury programme at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dublin from BBC website.

The academia, mainly from psychology, health and IT backgrounds will present their findings in communicative behaviours and demonstrate cutting edge technologies, which facilitate wide range of communication in diverse groups, e.g. aphasia, autism and aged people, and various scenarios.

In particular, a healthcare-driven HCI approach will be under discoursed and developed. Advancement in HCI and even BCI has more and more entered into our privacy. From the perspectives of economics, ethics and business, we will answer whether technology could bring more equality, inclusion and benefit for different groups. A concept of “technology equity” will be proposed and discussed in the workshop.

The workshop themes and topics

  • Tendency and business models in global digital health market
  • Tendency in Human-computer and Brain-computer interfaces (BCI)
  • Edge-cutting technology in healthcare, especially EEG, eye-tracking and Robot
  • Cost-effectiveness analysis on HCI in digital health technologies
  • Potential and future ethical issues in digital health technologies

More registration,submission and agenda details are coming soon.
