Bio-Inspired Human-Computer-Interaction

Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished Conference Paperpeer-review


Bio-inspiration, the use of principles derived from biological system to the construction of artefacts,
has been successfully applied in many areas of engineering. Here I argue that Human-ComputerInteraction
can greatly benefit from applying principles found in different areas of biology. While HCI
system, in general, can learn from biology, the recent trend of moving away from conventional user
interfaces to a more naturalistic interaction makes bio-inspiration timely. To support the case, the
paper maps four domains of HCI to areas of biological sciences and gives examples of works that
applied the underlying principles.
