Abstract

One of the major steps in the evolution of Human-computer interaction (HCI) is the introduction of physiological computing. Real-time measurements and analysis of physiological signals through sensors help opening up an implicit communication channel between computers and their users. Awareness of the user's emotional and cognitive states allow computers to react and adapt in real time, and therefore potentially maximize HCI performance efficiency and communication. Ubiquitous wearable computing enables us to make use of computational power in everyday situations. This liberates experiments and applications from necessary heavy stationary devices and controlled laboratory environments. Physi..
