Principal Research Scientist, Motorola Mobility
Author of "Building Mobile Experiences"
Building Mobile Experiences
Using examples from over a decade of research at Motorola and six years of teaching at MIT, Frank will describe his methods for creating and evaluating new mobile experiences. The talk will cover methods from generative research to paper prototyping, usability analysis, mobile programming, and multi-week field evaluations adapted for the unique properties of interaction out in the world. The focus is on getting something built and in use in real-world settings as quickly as possible (often within days!) to learn how these systems integrate with and enhance daily life. This talk will describe how these methods have been used to create services now in use by millions of people such as MotoBLUR, TuVista, and StoryPlace.me.

What We Do
BostonCHI is the Boston area chapter of ACM's Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI). Our members, from throughout New England, share ideas and experiences on the rapidly growing and changing area of how computers and people interact. Read the chapter Bylaws.
We have monthly gatherings in the metro Boston area, which are open to both members and non-members at no charge. In addition, members receive a monthly e-mail newsletter. If you're not yet a member, we encourage you to become one!
SIGCHI is a forum for the study of human-computer interaction (HCI) and includes research and development efforts leading to the design and evaluation of user interfaces. The focus of SIGCHI is on how people communicate and interact with computer systems. SIGCHI serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among computer scientists, human factor scientists, psychologists, social scientists, systems designers and end users. (from ACM SIGCHI)
BostonCHI is an organization of professionals from the New England area in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. Our members represent the diverse interests of that field: graphic arts, documentation, usability, psychology, user interface design, human factors, industrial design, ergonomics, computer science, training, education, and many others.
