BioSENSE researchers will be presenting two papers at the 2018 ACM Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) Conference next week. A paper by Richmond Wong, Nick Merrill, and John Chuang entitled When BCIs have APIs: Design Fictions of Everyday Brain-Computer Interface Adoption uses design fiction methods to think about the potential social implications of brain-computer interfaces as they...

Authors Noura Howell, Laura Devendorf, Tomás Alfonso Vega Gálvez, Rundong Tian, Kimiko Ryokai Abstract Biosensing displays, increasingly enrolled in emotional reflection, promise authoritative insight by presenting users’ emotions as discrete categories. Rather than machines interpreting emotions, we sought to explore an alternative with emotional biosensing displays in which users formed their own interpretations and felt...

Richmond Wong, Noura Howell, and Sarah Fox have received a joint grant from the Berkeley Center for Technology, Society & Policy (CTSP) and Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) for their project Menstrual Biosensing Survival Guide. From the project description, Biosensing technologies are increasingly present, predicting bodily or emotional health and offering promises of improved efficiency...

PhD Student Noura Howell and Prof. Greg Niemeyer are participating in the Arts Research Center Fellowship to develop their project proposal FEELER/CRAWLER/OCTOPET. This project explores an alternative vision of urban sensing inspired by the dérive or unstructured wandering of the Situationists. Through these walks the Situationists sought to break out of routines and experience life...
