Computer Interface: A Video History

A talk by Jamie Zigelbaum
The interface is the bridge and bottleneck between humans and
computers. Over the past 50 years researchers have invented and
imagined many and various interfaces to join synapse and transistor.
In this talk Jamie will give a brief history of human-computer
interaction research and we’ll watch videos of seminal interfaces from
Sutherland’s Sketchpad in ‘63 up through the latest nerdtastic work at
MIT and elsewhere.
Jamie Zigelbaum is a Ph.D. student in Prof. Hiroshi Ishii’s Tangible
Media Group at the MIT Media Lab. This talk is a version of a lecture
that he’s given with Dr. Jean-Baptiste Labrune in Ishii’s Tangible
Interfaces class and with Labrune and Seth Hunter in Prof. Pattie
Maes’ and Ishii’s New Paradigms for Human-Computer Interaction class.
Jamie is in LA for the summer working downtown at Oblong Industries.
