From our mobile phones to our watches, televisions, and even our cars – smart technology has become a staple in our everyday lives. And with the further development of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, our relationship with technology will only continue to increase.
But like any relationship, our relationships with technology requires clear communication – which is where Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID) comes in.
By developing intuitive user interfaces and easy-to-use interactive systems, HCID facilitates how we ‘talk’ to our smart devices. With the EIT Digital Master School programme on Human-Computer Interaction and Design, you’ll have the skills – and confidence – you need to design the systems that define this interaction.
