In this talk, I’ll (probably) review a series of studies we’ve been doing in Nottingham, where we’ve been looking at turning a hard-to-observe and hard-to-reflect-on internalised concept (Mental Workload) into something thats reliably observable in HCI (primarily using an fNIRS brain scanner at the moment), and something that people can more easily comprehend. I’ll progress through published work into ongoing work that is feeding peoples Mental Workload data back to them mid task. And touch on exciting things like our Brain-Controlled Movie.

Max L. Wilson is an Assistant Professor in the Mixed Reality Lab, based in Computer Science at the University of Nottingham. His work spans both HCI and Information Retrieval, where his primary recent focus has been on objectively measuring Mental Workload (with fNIRS), and how it is influenced by user interface design. Max received his PhD from Southampton, and his recent work has been supported by both Google and EPSRC funding. Max is an Associate Editor for IJHCS , has served as a senior reviewer for CHI , and has been on many CHI and CHIIR committees.
