Already Thinking About the Thesis
Yesterday, we heard from three HCI Master’s students who talked about their theses and surviving the course. I was impressed by the range of their thesis topics. One was on extracting keywords from common discussion and using those keywords to search for related images via Alta Vista image search. Another examined using information visualization techniques in complex transportation displays. Finally, another investigated the idea of immersion in video games.
We won’t need to solidify our project topics until after the first term, but I can’t help but think about what I might study. I already have quite a few ideas brewing, but I’d love to hear any project ideas you have. So if you have any important, interesting or outrageous ideas that you think I should look at in the context of HCI, please me let know in the comments.
