Come to the nexUX Meetup!


With Emil Polyak, professor of art and design at NC State

A presentation of cross-disciplinary experiences

In this informal presentation at a special time, Emil Polyak will share with us some of his work that breaks down the barriers between art and technology, and will also hold a Q&A after the presentation. Please bring your questions to the event!

Emil Polyak is professor of art and design at NC State. With degrees in cross disciplinary art and design as well as telecommunications engineering. The experiences he creates attempt to break boundaries between technology and art by focusing on play, interactivity and making. Emil will present several of his projects, including virtual puppets exhibited at SIGGRAPH, and his current work in the area of virtual reality.

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and art. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.

Please RSVP using the button below. 

Also, please forward this email to whomever you think might be interested!

Special thanks to our 2015-16 sponsors - LexisNexis, Deutsche Bank Global Technologies, the ePartners Program and the NC State Engineering Foundation.

Announcment: Friday's nexUX meetup: Chang Nam on measuring experience, at 3p


Come to Friday's nexUX Meetup! @ Hunt Library @ 300p
View this email in your browser

Come to the nexUX Meetup!

With Chang S Nam of Industrial and Systems Engineering

New brain measurement technologies: an emerging alternative for capturing experience?

New technologies such as EEG, FMRI and fNIR can measure brain activity. How well suited are they to capturing human experience? In this meetup we'll learn about the practicality and utility of these technologies for UX. 

Chang S. Nam has been an Associate Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University since 2011. He is also an associated faculty in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering as well as Department of Psychology. He conducts basic and applied research in human factors and ergonomics engineering, including brain-computer interfaces and rehabilitation engineering.

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about how we measure experience, why we measure it, and how we should be doing it.

Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.

If you're coming, please RSVP with the button below. Also, please forward this email to whomever you think meet be interested!

Come to the first nexUX Meetup!

Ross Teague and Todd Eischeid of Allscripts UX

Data Visualization in Healthcare:  a working meeting discussing best practices and ideas for meaningful presentation of data 

The amount of data being collected in healthcare is now immense and there are promised benefits of improved patient care, improved efficiency, and reduced costs with the analysis and presentation of the findings from this data. A clinically meaningful presentation of the data will be important to realize these benefits and "data visualization" is important. But what does "data visualization" really mean? Is it a chart, an answer to a question, a line graph? Are there data visualization standards that can be followed for presenting different types of information? What are the best ways to determine how best to present information to clinicians?
This is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to brainstorm and discuss what is known about how best to address some of these questions. While Todd and Ross will present the questions we'll seek to answer in the context of their healthcare environment, the discussion and output from this discussion will be applicable to any domain where the presentation of data/results of analysis of this data is important.
If you're coming, please RSVP with the button below. Also, please forward this email to whomever you think meet be interested.
