New Paradigms in Using Computers 2004

August 4, 2004 - What can I do with WAY too much information??
NPUC 2004 Logo
New Paradigms for Using Computers (NPUC) is a non-confidential, invitation-only workshop and networking forum for the community. In this one-day event, NPUC bridges academic and industrial HCI/CHI/UI/UE centers of work by focusing on a common theme. We invite several leading experts in the area of human interaction technology to come and tell us what they know, and have plenty of chance to discuss what's going on. It's a chance to hear the latest, best work in our field, and a premier opportunity to network within the human-centered computing field.  

Workshop Description:
For NPUC 2004 we ask the question:

"What can I do with WAY too much information??"
It's obvious to point out that we're inundated in information. Every news source keeps telling us that’s there’s too much information, too often, and too lightweight.  

Yet at the same time, people really do have access to qualitatively new information sources, with new spins on old data and we can touch a wealth of information that just wasn't widely available a few short years ago. 

In this year's edition of NPUC, we focus NOT just on digging deeper into classical data mining, but how the riches of the unstructured (and semi-structured) information ocean changes our daily lives, our work and our perceptions of the world around us.

Our speakers will tell us about what information they use, what interesting new and possibly non-traditional sources they draw upon, how they analyze it, and what they've learned from their studies.  Each of them has an  interesting, detailed and pragmatic story to tell about how WAAAY too much information can lead to insight.
