ICS graduate student and HICHI lab member Philipp Jordan had his work highlighted in MIT Technology Review. Phil studies how science fiction inspires human-computer interaction research and design.
According to the article:
“[T]echnology companies increasingly employ futurists who use science fiction as a medium for exploring potential new technologies and their social impact. They call this science fiction prototyping. Jordan and co’s work could clearly help to make this activity more fruitful.”
The Tech Review article was inspired by Phil et al’s most recent paper: Exploring the Referral and Usage of Science Fiction in HCI Literature.
