Human-computer interaction (HCI) is a multidisciplinary subject
that focuses on computer design and user experience. It brings together
expertise from computer science, cognitive psychology, behavioral
science, and design to understand and facilitate better interactions
between users and machines.
The subject is broken down into three parts: the user, the computer, and
- USER:-The user is any individual or group and considers all
of the factors that may influence their interaction with a machine,
including sensory systems (sight, sound, touch), level of education,
age, and cultural or social differences.
- COMPUTER:The computer is a broad term
that refers to any piece of technology, software, or digital platform.
- INTERACTION:Interaction is the design element. Its primary goals are usability and
functionality, which are always unique to every specific project. For
example, a developer working on a piece of software to encourage
children to get into coding will have very different HCI considerations
from the designer working on a program for a professional coder.
