Many principles of how we interact with computers are so familiar to us that we don’t stop to think how they came to be. In this session, we’ll discuss how human/machine interaction has evolved from buttons and switches to icons, and from punch cards and command line typing to graphical user interfaces and touchscreen technology. Participants will see videos of early systems in action, hear quotes from key thought leaders in the field, and walk away with a better understanding of how our relationship with these “thinking machines” evolved.
