HumanComputer Interaction Course Staff

Dear FIX,

We're live! As many of you have seen, we've posted the first assignment and lectures, and the discussion forum is full of energy.

These first lecture videos introduce the field of human-computer interaction and provide a high-level overview of the course. I'll also provide a whirlwind 'greatest hits' history of HCI and the origins of graphical interfaces. Next, we dive into techniques for finding design ideas by engaging users, and you'll use these techniques in the first week's assignment.

Like some other courses, the HCI class will offer two tracks: an "apprentice" track for those that keep up with lectures and do well on the quizzes, and a "studio" track for those that also do well on the project. You don't need to 'pick' a track. The course will automatically provide you with the right Statement of Accomplishment that you earn based on the work you submit. For more information about the track options, go to . The first time you log in, please fill out the survey because we'd like to get a sense of who you are. It helps us create the best possible course, and also makes all the students taking this class more tangible and real. That's personally rewarding for me. You can fill out the survey at

Over the nine-week course, there will be five project assignments. The first assignment will be due Sunday, October 7th at 10pm *PST*. (If you’re in a different time zone, make sure to convert this to your local time.) Quizzes and peer assessment (of your fellow students ) will be due on Wednesdays at 10pm. The first quiz/peer assessment deadline will be Wednesday October 10th. I want to underscore that the peer assessment feature is brand-new for this course, and enables us to offer you exciting, open-ended assignments. To make it work, we'll need your full support and cooperation. It's very important that you take this part of the course seriously -- it's going to take all of us working together to make this a success.

What I hope you'll get out of the first assignment and lectures is the simple yet powerful idea that by leaving our desks to observe and interview people, it's possible to gain some really useful ideas for designing new kinds of systems, or redesigning existing systems so they better fit people's goals. It can take some courage to get started, but the payoff can be huge. I think this first assignment will be a lot of fun, and I'm really excited to see all the ideas that all of you come up with.

This first assignment gives you a lot of latitude to be really creative, and so I hope you'll take advantage of it. What unique things can you find to observe? What creative design insights can you imagine? Feel free to brainstorm with your fellow students, both in
person and online. The sky's the limit...

Course Updates & News


You can check out the syllabus page to see the topics we’ll be covering. In addition to learning the theoretical foundations of AI, you will also get hands-on experience implementing AI algorithms in a video-game-themed context. There will be lecture videos and homework assignments every week, programming projects every other week, and a single final exam at the end.
The course information page has information about course logistics and policies. The course staff page tells you a little more about us. The primary communication channel for this course is our interactive forum, where you are encouraged to post questions, answers, and comments!
The first week's videos are available for you to watch! In these introductory segments, we discuss what artificial intelligence is (and isn't), explore some of its history, and see its current capabilities and limitations.
We have posted an optional short math self-diagnostic so you can verify your mathematical preparedness for the course. We've also posted an optional mini-refresher (or introduction) to Python, the language used in our programming projects. The Python refresher is also a great opportunity to try out the project submission interface used throughout the class.
We look forward to a great semester with you!

Dan, Pieter, and the CS188x Course Team
