Human Behaviour Network: Accessibility of Big/Broad Data: Adapting Interfaces to Suit Our Senses

Abstract
The next Human Behaviour Network Seminar will be presented by Dr. Simon Harper from CS entitled "Accessibility of Big/Broad Data: Adapting Interfaces to Suit Our Senses". The seminar is free to attend.

Overview Visually disabled people typically use methods of 'sensory translation' to access data via assistive technology. These technologies conventionally render content under the direction of the user into a form that can be perceived by that user -- in effect the interface and content are adapted to suit their sensory requirements -- but simple sensory translation is not enough for big, broad and complex data. Why is this -- and how can things be better?
