Dr. Dinesh Katre

Dr. Dinesh Katre was in Hyderabad and discussed on "Experience of Ph.D. Research in HCI and the Issues Involved" on a high-tea meeting with the local HCI community.

The meeting was hosted by Cordys and was attended by HCI professionals from companies like CA, Convergys, Cordys, Cognizant, Glansa, Hitha, Kanbay, Microsoft, Oracle, Progress, Satyam, SIT, TCS, and Trina.

The talk was a comprehensive take on the historical background, current trends and future implications of the HCI field.

Dr. Dinesh Katre took us through various aspects of HCI field with witty anecdotes and a fluidity that never let most of us realize the passage of time.

At the end of it, it looked like there is still more to be taken.

The CDAC case study regarding teaching village farmers about Watershed management through the use of satellite data and a 3D simulation of village, all in form of a game package, was exciting as well as gave many insights into HCI process.

This was a very practical talk that touched the theory as well as application of HCI in real world context. We do look forward to more such sessions.

This is really great to see people from outside hyderabad are visiting. I enjoyed listning to Dinesh at IIT Guwahati on mobile interfaces. I am sure his talk at Cordys must have been interesting. I missed this event as I was out of India. But sure we will have more events and everyone will benefit form this.

I have a question rather than a comment. What problems did you face with remote usability testing and how effective or relevant was the feedback.
