History and Current Research sections[edit]

I feel this article is missing two very important sections, namely the history of HCI and what research is being done to further develop HCI.

The history section could go over the early ideas and concepts in HCI, like

Current research could briefly go over the following ideas and how they relate to HCI

  • Speech recognition and natural language processing
  • Gesture recognition
  • computer vision, face recognition, gaze tracking, ect...
  • virtual reality and 3D interfaces
  • multi-touch interfaces

Anyone have other ideas? Loserpenguin15 (talk) 01:37, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm sympathetic to including some history, and there are several references in the article to historical treatments. I'd caution anyone undertaking this to read Colin Burke's book Information & Secrecy before writing about Memex (or read about it in my chapter in ARIST 47 or the forthcoming 3rd HCI Handbook edition). I'd also add Engelbart to the list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jgrudin (talkcontribs) 10:44, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Lucy Suchman[edit]

Might I suggest that an editor link human-computer interaction to Lucy Suchman as this subject is what much of her work is in. Her feminist theory piece "Subject Objects" states, "Three stagings of human-robot encounters (with the robots Mertz, Kismet and Robota respectively) demonstrate different possibilities for conceptualizing these subject objects, for the claims about humanness they they corporealise, and for the kinds of witnessing that they presuppose." This page should potentially also be linked to the above listed robots of Mertz, Kismet and Robota. Taylor Bohl (talk) 18:48, 26 February 2013 (UTC)Taylor Bohl
