Event description

Description

Thanks to the generous support of the Francqui Foundation, the Web & Information Systems Engineering (WISE) lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is happy to present a lecture series by the 2020 Francqui Chair holder in Computer Science Prof. Dr. Jean Vanderdonckt.

This inaugural lesson will introduce the audience to the major aims and goals of people interacting with any system (e.g. a computer, a smartphone, a screen or a service) by relying on human gestures. It will raise the ethical question of whether any gestural interaction could be considered as natural. It will then presents a series of myths, that gestural interaction may induce and that are not (yet) true. During this discussion, a permanent insight will be kept with our human capabilities to check whether this is acceptable or not.

Location: I.0.02, VUB, Pleinlaan 2

The inaugural lecture will be followed by a reception starting around 18:00.

Details about the content and exact location of the lectures taking place at five different dates can be found here.

host: Prof. Dr. Beat Signer, Vrije Universiteit Brussel
