We are changing how we will notify email subscribers about news from the Exertion Games Lab. This is due to Feedburner support being phased out. We are using the WordPress service instead. Nothing changes to your notifications via email, they are still sparse, only about 1 email/month, and we will never sell your email, spam or anything like that. We want to make sure you are ok with this change, so if you have subscribed via email, you will get a notification email that we please ask you to confirm so you can continue to get updates from us.

BCI Talk

Nathan collaborated with UK artist Rod Dickinson and will present the result as part of the event “Decoding Humans” “The Quantification of Emotions” on Thursday morning, 2:00am – 3:00am (essentially Wednesday night), Melbourne time. This is part of the Downloadable Brain series, a series of artistic presentations published by Cognitive Sensations exploring the relationship between technology and the brain. 

The work is called “Machine_in_the_middle”, a play on the idea of a “man-in-the-middle” attack, in which the emotions of the victim are extracted via a brain-computer interface (BCI) and animated onto their face through electrical muscle stimulation for all to see.

Outstanding Dissertation Award

Josh has received a SIGCHI Outstanding Dissertation Award. There are only 3 recipients for the best HCI PhD thesis, so this is an outstanding achievement! Congratulations Josh, well deserved!

Josh Andres’ dissertation (Integrated Exertion – Understanding the Design of Human–Computer Integration in an Exertion Context) helps to move human-computer “interaction” to human-computer “integration” by considering the active human body in a user-computer partnership. Josh used design research to investigate how to integrate computational machinery with the active human body to extend the user’s abilities. He exemplified this by designing three eBikes that use three different data types, motion, traffic lights, and EEG (electroencephalography) to integrate with the exerting user and make cycling safer and more engaging. 

This research is timely and increasingly ethically important, as integrations between users and computers are gaining potency through technological advances that allow the user and computer to work together more tightly. His work can guide interaction designers on how to, and in an inclusive manner, amplify a person’s sensations of their abilities in an exertion context to create “superpower”, “co-operative” and “symbiotic” human-computer partnerships. 

Josh undertook his PhD at the Exertion Games Lab in Melbourne, Australia, with support from Monash University, IBM Research Australia, and RMIT University, and it was co-supervised by Florian’ Floyd’ Mueller, Jürg von Känel and Jonathan Duckworth.

Josh got his PhD!

Josh Andres has successfully completed all requirements for his PhD, congratulations!

Josh contributed a novel understanding of how to integrate humans and computational machines via designing better eBikes.

He moves human-computer “interaction” to “integration”, where the computational machine and the human body become active partners. Using design research, he developed three eBikes (controlled by motion, traffic light and EEG data) to demonstrate how his “integration framework” can facilitate more engaging, healthier and safer user experiences.
