Instead of looking for design solutions to fix existing problems in privacy, I School researchers used speculative design fictions to explore the potential privacy issues that may arise in future uses and adoptions of emerging biosensing technologies.

I School researchers have developed a custom-fit earpiece that that can capture “passthoughts” through brainwave signals from the ear canal, and for the first time demonstrated one-step three-factor authentication.

An increasing number of apps let users share their heartrate with friends. Now a pair of researchers are exploring how sharing your biosignals can affect your interpersonal interactions.

Professor Marti Hearst

Hearst’s HCI research includes user interfaces for search, information visualization of text, web site usability, and innovation in education.

Facebook is grappling with its impact on our social and emotional lives  —  and that’s a good thing. But it has to get the research right. Why Facebook did the experiment, and how to make it better.
