A process-oriented approach to the science of human-computer interaction

Abstract : Since the birth of the field, HCI has defined itself both as a theory of the relations between humans and numerical systems and as a practical activity that aims at building new interactive systems. However, HCI has not yet succeeded in discovering a unified theoretical framework nor in building a strong link between both activities. Based on an analysis from various fields, we show that most of the difficulties come from the computational paradigm that is still used as a foundation of most of the theories in HCI. This brings us to proposing a new philosophical view on the science of HCI, based on a process ontology. We show how it accounts for several phenomena related to HCI and unifies them. This approach lends itself to new ways of thinking and programming interaction at di↵erent scales, which may help HCI scientists in their modelling and design activities.
