About the Talk

Researchers and practitioners at NC State and nearby are coming together around the problems and questions raised by pervasive technology to form nexUX, a center dedicated to understanding what's next in user experience. As technology permeates our lives, its impact is much deeper than efficiency. It affects the whole person, including emotion, cognition and behavior; and more broadly community and society. Through research, practice, teaching and outreach, nexUX will create understanding of these effects, and apply that understanding so that technology will do what it was designed to do: improve our lives. Please bring and share your ideas; our plans for nexUX are still forming. 

About the Speaker

Benjamin Watson is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at North Carolina State University. His Visual Experience Lab focuses on the engineering of visual experience, and spans the intersections between graphics, perception, design, and interaction. Much of his work has migrated to the mobile platform, as the most pervasive of visual interfaces. Watson is an ACM and senior IEEE member. He earned his doctorate at the Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
