HCID Research Seminar - After serendipity strikes: Creating value from encountered information

1.00pm

Seminars

Public

Speakers: Dr Stephann Makri, Senior Lecturer, Human-Computer Interaction, City, University of London

Series: HCID Research Seminars

Seminar Abstract:

Existing research into serendipitous information encountering has focused on how people stumble upon information, rather than how they create value from the information encountered. This online diary study with follow-up interviews provides an enriched understanding of the subjective value of information encounters and the motivators, barriers and actions involved in creating value from them. We leverage our findings to generate design suggestions for digital information tools aimed at assisting in creating value from encountered information.

About the speaker:

Dr Stephann Makri is a Senior Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction at City, University of London and self-proclaimed 'prince of
serendip'. His research focuses on serendipity on the Web-understanding how people 'encounter' useful information unexpectedly
and how we can design technology to better support this. His work has featured widely in the media, including in the Sunday Times, BBC and ABC Radio and Readers Digest.
