Title: Human-Centered Computing Long-range plan


1
Human-Centered ComputingLong-range plan
  • John Canny
  • UC Berkeley

2
Our reason for being
  • To make computing more useful to people.
  • To use computing to learn more about people.
  • Computing is permeating our daily lives, and
    becoming our environment.

3
The center model
  • We want to have social sciences participate as
    primary partners.
  • Interdisciplinary collaboration is hard, and
    happens sporadically by itself.
  • Collaboration happens much more often when
    facilitated by
  • Shared space or proximity
  • Regular face-to-face contact
  • Shared funding

4
What we want to deliver
  • The center provides those resources, and seeks to
    generate
  • Focussed research projects involving
    collaboration between 2-7 faculty.
  • Industry partnerships in those projects.
  • Opportunities for graduate students contact with
    or co-advising by faculty across departments.
    Contacts with industry.

5
Three projects in the pipeline
  • Being There (2 CS, 2 EE, 2 psychologists).
  • Tacit Knowledge Mining (2 CS, 2 sociologists, 1
    anthropologist)
  • Knowledgescapes (2 CS, 2 sociologists, 1 SIMS)

6
Lessons from the GVU
  • Create a core group of faculty (and industry
    people) with specific responsibilities.
  • Hire some staff people to manage day-to-day
    functioning of the center.
  • Create partnerships with industry.
  • Go after government support.
  • Create shared labs.

7
The Berkeley Brand
  • Balance and strength in SS and CS.
  • Of the 30 main graduate research disciplines,
    Berkeley has departments in the top 10 in 28.
  • Rigor in both theoretical and experimental work.

8
Next semester
  • The HCC seminar continues speakers from CS,
    social sciences, academic and industry.
  • New graduate course on HCC Covers
  • Presence and non-verbal communication
  • Social network theory and applications
  • Tacit knowledge
  • Activity theory, social learning
  • Web site is www.cs.berkeley.edu/jfc/hcc
  • Reading group Mark and Eric

9
How you can help
  • UCB folks Be involved in the seminar, retreats
    etc.
  • Direct support at the center level.
  • Partnerships Focussed projects, fixed-duration,
    IP contracts need to be figured out.
  • Steering committee or IAB.
