An in-depth exploration of the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) including its history, goals, principles, methodologies, successes, failures, open problems, and emerging areas. Broad topics include theories of interaction and design (e.g., stages of execution, error identification, natural constraints, memory by affordances), design principles (e.g., visual design, multimodal design, emotional design), design methods (e.g., user-centered design, task analysis, prototyping tools), evaluation techniques (e.g., inspection-based evaluations, model-based evaluations) and emerging topics (e.g., affective computing, augmented cognition, social computing, ubiquitous computing).
A broad overview of the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), including its historical and philosophical foundations, classical and contemporary approaches, cognitive systems, and recent trends and applications. Topics include traditional AI techniques (e.g., searching, problem solving, knowledge representation and reasoning, planning, constraint satisfaction, decision making), probabilistic and network based approaches (e.g., Bayesian models, neural networks), computational models of cognition (e.g., models of perception, action, memory, cognitive architectures), and recent developments in natural language processing, speech recognition, robotics, human-computer interaction, machine learning, and computational emotions.
