Graphical User Interface and Human-Computer Interaction

  • Gerard O’Regan


Human-computer interaction (HCI) is a branch of computer science that is concerned with the design, evaluation, and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use. It is focused on the interfaces between people and computers and involves several fields including computer science, cognitive psychology, design, and communication. It has grown over the decades to include text-based interaction systems, graphical user interfaces (GUI), and voice user interfaces (VUI) for speech recognition and speech synthesis.
