Human-Centric Computing (HCC) or Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is what puts the “U” or user in Natural User Interactions (NUI). HCC is about understanding what users need and want from computing interactions. There are several methods of research to determine users’ needs and desires with regards to computing interactions that result in the most effective outcomes with the least amount of user effort. This Initiative will explore these methods and discuss the importance of defining user needs before developing natural user input and output solutions.
