Mentis, Helena M., Lindley, Sian E., Taylor, Stuart, Dunphy, Paul, Regan, Tim and Harper, Richard (2012): Taking as an act of sharing. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW12 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2012. pp. 1091-1100.

We present findings from the deployment of a mobile application, Take and Give, which allows users to place image files in a virtual folder or 'Pocket' on a mobile phone. This content can be viewed by a set of 'Buddies', who can, if they wish, attempt to take ownership of a file for themselves, following which they can keep it, delete it, or place it in the Pocket of someone else. There is only one version of each file, creating a twist on traditional sharing technologies. We report findings from a three week trial of the application in an office space, and describe how Take and Give provided a means of self-presentation and supported a sense of awareness, mutual attentiveness and connectedness. Our findings suggest that the taking of unique content can be an engaging form of sharing and can facilitate awareness and connectedness between people.

Hook, Jonathan, Green, David, McCarthy, John, Taylor, Stuart, Wright, Peter and Olivier, Patrick (2011): A VJ centered exploration of expressive interaction. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1265-1274.

This paper identifies key themes of expressive interaction for VJs. VJs are visual artists who use digital media to express themselves to an audience during a live audio-visual performance. Those designing for the expressive use of technology can gain insight from an articulation of expressive interaction from the perspective of VJ practice. This is developed using a novel qualitative methodology designed to be sensitive to the subtle and tacit nature of expression. We detail our methodology, present the results of its application to a group of VJs and conclude with a discussion of the implications our findings may have for those wishing to design for VJs, or those in related domains that involve expressive interaction with technology.

Kirk, David S., Izadi, Shahram, Sellen, Abigail, Taylor, Stuart, Banks, Richard and Hilliges, Otmar (2010): Opening up the family archive. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW10 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2010. pp. 261-270.

The Family Archive device is an interactive multi-touch tabletop technology with integrated capture facility for the archiving of sentimental artefacts and memorabilia. It was developed as a technology probe to help us open up current family archiving practices and to explore family archiving in situ. We detail the deployment and study of three of these devices in family homes and discuss how deploying a new, potentially disruptive, technology can foreground the social relations and organizing systems in domestic life. This in turn facilitates critical reflection on technology design.

Taylor, Stuart, Izadi, Shahram, Kirk, David, Harper, Richard and Garcia-Mendoza, Armando (2009): Turning the tables: an interactive surface for vjing. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 1251-1254.

In this paper we describe VPlay, a multi-touch tabletop application that allows users to mix and manipulate multiple video streams in real-time. Our aim is to explore how such an interactive surface can support and augment practices around VJing -- a form of video performance art that is becoming increasingly popular in nightclubs and other music events. We conclude with observations from a field deployment, which highlight some initial thoughts and reflections on our design rationale.

Harper, Richard and Taylor, Stuart (2009): Glancephone: an exploration of human expression. In: Proceedings of 11th Conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices and services 2009. p. 24.

In this paper, we describe the design and ethnographic study of a phone developed so as to allow people to glance at each other, rather than simply message or voice call. Glancephones work through having a form factor that allows them to be placed upright when a user wants to be available for glancing, and support a web-based application that allows glances, bitmap images, to be taken and sent to a remote viewer on request, via GPRS connections. Glancephones were originally invented to allow callers to see if it is appropriate to call or interrupt and thus act like normal glances in face-to-face situations. Ethnographic studies of the use indicate that people prefer using the devices not to support greeting sequences, however, but to enable others to glance at them. It was found that Glacephones were used to draw attention to oneself, not to encourage better control of interruption and greeting sequences. The paper uses this data to remark on the concepts of human expression that underscore much of the research reported in Mobile HCI, and it proposes Bourdieu's concepts of habitus and relatedly, distinction, as explanatory tools for this and other evidence about expression enabled by mobile and other technologies of communication.

Kirk, David, Sellen, Abigail, Taylor, Stuart, Villar, Nicolas and Izadi, Shahram (2009): Putting the physical into the digital: issues in designing hybrid interactive surfaces. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 35-44.

Hybrid surfaces are interactive systems combining techniques of direct-manipulation multi-touch surface interaction with elements of tangible user interfaces (TUIs). The design space for such complex hands-on computing experiences is sufficiently broad that it can be difficult to decide when interface elements should be given either a physical or digital instantiation, and the extent to which different interface functions should be made to model real-world interactions. In this paper we present two case studies of hybrid surface systems we are developing and discuss how we have reasoned through these kinds of design decisions. From this, we derive a set of observations about properties of physical and digital elements, and offer them as a design resource.

Hook, Jonathan, Taylor, Stuart, Butler, Alex, Villar, Nicolas and Izadi, Shahram (2009): A reconfigurable ferromagnetic input device. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2009. pp. 51-54.

We present a novel hardware device based on ferromagnetic sensing, capable of detecting the presence, position and deformation of any ferrous object placed on or near its surface. These objects can include ball bearings, magnets, iron filings, and soft malleable bladders filled with ferrofluid. Our technology can be used to build reconfigurable input devices -- where the physical form of the input device can be assembled using combinations of such ferrous objects. This allows users to rapidly construct new forms of input device, such as a trackball-style device based on a single large ball bearing, tangible mixers based on a collection of sliders and buttons with ferrous components, and multi-touch malleable surfaces using a ferrofluid bladder. We discuss the implementation of our technology, its strengths and limitations, and potential application scenarios.

Durrant, Abigail, Taylor, Alex S., Taylor, Stuart, Molloy, Mike, Sellen, Abigail, Frohlich, David M., Gosset, Phil and Swan, Laurel (2008): Speculative devices for photo display. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2008 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems April 5-10, 2008. pp. 2297-2302.

In this paper, we describe three purposefully provocative, digital photo display technologies designed for home settings. The three devices have been built to provoke questions around how digital photographs might be seen and interacted with in novel ways. They are also intended for speculation about the expressive resources afforded by digital technologies for displaying photos. It is hoped interactions with the devices will help researchers and designers reflect on new design possibilities. The devices are also being deployed as part of ongoing home-oriented field research.

Pan, Jeff Z., Stamou, Giorgos, Stoilos, Giorgos, Taylor, Stuart and Thomas, Edward (2008): Scalable querying services over fuzzy ontologies. In: Proceedings of the 2008 International Conference on the World Wide Web 2008. pp. 575-584.

Fuzzy ontologies are envisioned to be useful in the Semantic Web. Existing fuzzy ontology reasoners are not scalable enough to handle the scale of data that the Web provides. In this paper, we propose a framework of fuzzy query languages for fuzzy ontologies, and present query answering algorithms for these query languages over fuzzy DL-Lite ontologies. Moreover, this paper reports on implementation of our approach in the fuzzy DL-Lite query engine in the ONTOSEARCH2 system and preliminary, but encouraging, benchmarking results. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first ever scalable query engine for fuzzy ontologies.
