Description

In the past few years a branch of sociology, conversation analysis, has begun to have a significant impact on the design of humanb1computer interaction (HCI). The investigation of humanb1human dialogue has emerged as a fruitful foundation for interactive system design.This book includes eleven original chapters by leading researchers who are applying conversation analysis to HCI. The fundamentals of conversation analysis are outlined, a number of systems are described, and a critical view of their value for HCI is offered.Computers and Conversation will be of interest to all concerned with HCI issues--from the advanced student to the professional computer scientist involved in the design and specification of interactive systems.

Readership

Researchers and advanced students in human*b1computer interaction, social implications of computing, ergonomics, and computational linguistics.
