Drexel CCI HCI/UX Conversations Seminar Featuring D. Yvette Wohn
Monday, December 4, 2023
5:00 PM-6:00 PM
The Department of Information Science at Drexel University’s College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) is pleased to present its next HCI/UX Conversations Seminar:
Featuring D. Yvette Wohn, PhD
Online harassment is a problem that we still have been unable to solve in the social media age of Web 2.0. As we move deeper into Web 3.0, which includes 3D virtual worlds, moderation moves beyond content to include behavioral components such as embodied interactions. How do we design these systems to be creative and generative while maintaining safety and equity? This talk will discuss the challenges and opportunities, both social and technical, in creating the next wave of networked multimedia systems.
