Affective Feedback – towards ending frustrating online interactions and making secure interactions more usable

Affective Feedback has been found to have a positive effect on human-computer interactions. Often this is through use of an emotional avatar, presented in the literature as agents that can demonstrate to a certain degree social and emotional intelligence. It has also been argued that humans tend to apply similar social rules to interactions with computers as they do to interactions with other humans. Research presented in this talk considers human computer interaction when a human is in a frustrated state and also that when demonstrating insecure online behaviour and how affective interaction generated by an emotional avatar may help the situation.

Dr Jackie Archibald is a lecturer at University of Abertay Dundee. Her teaching covers HCI, Usability, Web Design and Professional Practise. Jackie’s research interests lie in the areas of Usability, Affective Computing and Security and is currently supervising three PhD students working in different aspects of these said areas.
