Traditionally, humans have been seen as users of technology, leading to considerations of how people interact with computers and how computers present information back to them. The evolution of internet-connected devices, wearable technology, big data and AI have given rise to smart cities and smart homes, where human actions and everyday behaviour become implicit inputs to technology, and environmental changes become the outputs. In this talk I will discuss some of the implications of this, and describe how human-centred computing enables us to keep the user at the forefront of technological innovation.

Light Refreshments will be provided.
