Risk Issues in Developing Novel User Interfaces for Human-Computer Interaction
In "RISK - A Multidisciplinary Introduction", Springer, 2014, pp. 407-439. (bib)

When new user interfaces or information visualization schemes are developed for complex information processing systems, it is not readily clear how much they do, in fact, support and improve users' understanding and use of such systems. Is a new interface better than an older one? In what respect, and in which situations? To provide answers to such questions, user testing schemes are employed. This chapter reports on a range of risks pertaining to the design and implementation of user interfaces in general, and to newly emerging interfaces (3-dimensionally, immersive, mobile) in particular. The facts. - In our modern society, much of what we do is at least partially supported, guided or influenced by information stored, simulated or analyzed in computers. - It is important that everybody is able to use and understand such virtual information without mental or physical barriers. - Research in human-computer interaction strives towards finding suitable interaction paradigms that support people in using computer information in their daily activities { for both personal and professional use. - Research on suitable interaction metaphors analyzes risks of miscommunication between humans and computers. - Potential miscommunication can be a challenge (e.g., in games), a nuisance (in uncritical situations) or a physical danger (in life-critical situations).
