This list contains the books I believe everyone who wants to truly understand what digital design is all about needs to read. I've tried to roughly categorize them into more foundational topics and then somewhat along the double diamond: finding the right problem and finding the right solution. To provide a glimpse into the future, I also list some books on designing for an with (a selection of) novel types of interfaces.
Two research papers I co-authored have been recently accepted to prestigious international conferences: ACM CHI and ICWE. The first one even won a Best Paper Award. 🎉
At this year's INFORMATIK conference held by the GI in Cottbus, I had the chance to present a research paper (full text here) about HoloBuilder—officially titled "Enabling Industry 4.0 with holobuilder"1—that I wrote together with my colleagues Kristina Tenhaft, Simon Heinen and Harry Handorf. In our paper, we examine HoloBuilder from a research rather than… Continue reading Enabling Industry 4.0 with HoloBuilder
My PhD thesis introduces a novel methodology that is named Search Interaction Optimization (SIO) and is used for designing, evaluating and optimizing search engine results pages (so-called SERPs). As a proof-of-concept of this new methodology, I've developed a corresponding SIO toolkit, which comprises a total of seven components1 (most of which have already been introduced in previous… Continue reading The Search Interaction Optimization Toolkit – The Essence of my PhD Thesis
As one of the building blocks of my PhD thesis, I have developed a novel instrument for measuring the usability of web interfaces, which is simply called Inuit—the Interface Usability Instrument1. This was necessary because a usability instrument that is suited for the automatic methods for Search Interaction Optimization I have developed in my PhD… Continue reading INUIT: The Interface Usability Instrument
In the context of my PhD thesis in Human–Computer Interaction, I currently conduct a survey concerning the use of search engines. With the help of this survey I hope to better understand how you perceive and use search engines and which expectations you have towards them. In particular, I focus on the use of search… Continue reading Survey: Search Engines – Perception, Usage & Expectations
Für meine Doktorarbeit in Human-Computer Interaction führe ich momentan eine Umfrage zur Nutzung von Suchmaschinen durch. Es geht mir in dieser Umfrage vor allem darum, herauszufinden, wie ihr Suchmaschinen wahrnehmt und welche Erwartungen ihr an sie habt. Besonderer Fokus liegt auch auf der Nutzung mit Smartphones, Tablets und anderen Geräten, wie z. B. einer Nintendo Wii… Continue reading Umfrage: Suchmaschinen – Wahrnehmung, Nutzung & Erwartungen
