Talk of Prof. Dr. Jörn Hurtienne: ‘Intuitive Use, Image-Schematic Metaphors and Quantifying Interaction’ on December 19, 2016

We are happy to invite you to the following talk, which is part of the SFB-TRR 161 lecture series:

Intuitive Use, Image-Schematic Metaphors and Quantifying Interaction

Speaker Prof. Dr. Jörn Hurtienne
Institution Psychological Ergonomics at the institute Mensch-Computer-Medien [Human-Computer-Media] at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg
Date December 19, 2016
Timeframe 4pm – 5pm
Location C 202 (Powerwall Room)

Can we design user interfaces that are intuitive to use, innovative and inclusive – all at the same time? Although it is generally doubted that this would be possible, we found great promise in the cognitive-linguistic theory of image-schematic metaphors. The talk introduces the theory and research into the application of image-schematic metaphors in HCI. Our research suggests that the application of image schemas can contribute to user interfaces that are innovative, inclusive and intuitive to use. Along the way I will highlight aspects of how we quantify innovation, intuitive use and inclusiveness.
