April 27, 2007 lecture by Joseph Kaye for the Stanford University Human-Computer Interaction Seminar (CS 547). Human-Computer Interaction sits at the boundary between technical and social practice. In this talk, Joseph discusses the evolution of HCI's notion of evaluation, and redefinitions over time of what HCI considers valid knowledge. This culminates with case studies showing how this understanding may be of use in light of current questions about the evaluation of experience-focused rather than task-focused HCI.
