Introduction

The human-computer interaction (HCI) industry is dynamic and ever-changing and, as a result, requires professionals committed to improving the discipline with a focus on the future.

Eight experts from MIT CSAIL have dedicated their research efforts to exploring the ways in which HCI can be enhanced and now they’re opening that research up to you.

You have the opportunity to access their work to imagine your own future for HCI and the user experience by reflecting on non-traditional interaction, speech recognition, and rapid prototyping, among others.

Take your understanding beyond interface by integrating experimental HCI into your work, all backed by the research of expert MIT faculty and verified with a certificate from MIT xPRO.
