How are you, my digital friend? Semiogenesis of a Visual Communication Concept for Emotional Contents of Future HCI in Smart Living Contexts.
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
Imagine it's 2040, and you are living together in a collaborative network of diverse digital entities. As human beings, we often act and react emotionally, mainly in a non-verbal way. Simulating emotions is a sub-aim of the Human-Technology Symbiosis, one of the seven grand HCI challenges (Stephanidis & Salvendy, 2019). How might we enable our autonomous actants to communicate emotionally? This poster aims to scope out the research project on a visual interface for digitally connected systems based on emotions and moods. The project uses a speculative and more-than-human approach to investigate the possibilities and implications of this new coexisting form with smart living products and systems.
