Keynote speech by Ben Shneiderman

Ben Shneiderman (Emeritus Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Founding Director of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of Maryland) will give the Keynote Speech during the Opening Plenary Session on Sunday 26 June 2022.

"Human-Centered AI: A New Synthesis"

Abstract: A new synthesis is emerging that integrates AI technologies with HCI approaches to produce Human-Centered AI (HCAI). Advocates of this new synthesis seek to amplify, augment, and enhance human abilities, so as to empower people, build their self-efficacy, support creativity, recognize responsibility, and promote social connections.
Educators, designers, software engineers, product managers, evaluators, and government agency staffers can build on AI-driven technologies to design products and services that make life better for the users. These human-centered products and services will enable people to better care for each other, build sustainable communities, and restore the environment. The passionate advocates of HCAI are devoted to furthering human values, rights, justice, and dignity, by building reliable, safe, and trustworthy systems.
The talk will include examples, references to further work, and discussion time for questions. These ideas are drawn from Ben Shneiderman’s latest book (Oxford University Press, January 2022). Further information is available.

Review by Ben Shneiderman, University of Maryland
"Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics", 5th edition (Wiley, 2021)
edited by Gavriel Salvendy and Waldemar Karwowski


A bountiful buffet of brilliant reviews! This monster book of 1500+ double-columned pages present broad coverage of human factors, ergonomics, human-computer interaction, and related topics with applications to medicine, aviation, website design, and much more. Gavriel Salvendy and Waldemar Karwowski have gathered legendary chefs and younger stars to cook up this healthy diet that will have readers snacking for many months as they digest the morsels of wisdom and ample portions of meaningful history, comprehensive overviews, well-crafted diagrams, and abundant references. The 57 monographs justify the high price, since you will return to this hefty handbook regularly and show it to your colleagues to demonstrate the remarkable breadth and astonishing impact that human factors and related topics have had on our civilization. This handbook also lays the foundation for future work, enabling readers to see how ideas have been interpreted across applications and what design decisions made the difference between failure and success. Eager students and experienced professionals will find plenty of perceptual, psychological, and social theory, complemented by in-depth coverage of business-driven user-oriented design, workplace safety, and training. Another theme that I was pleased to find covered was management aspects of cybersecurity, accident investigation, system audits, and cost/benefit analysis. Finally, my pleasure was complete when I found thoughtful reviews of data visualization and human-centered AI.
