Speculating on the Interpretation of Sensory Perception Objects by Humans and Computers
Synku was developed in the Tactical and Tactile Lab (TAT Lab) in the Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington under the direction of Dr. Daniela Rosner. We subsequently co-authored a conference proceedings publication in the 33rd Annual ACM Conference Extended Abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI EA '15.'
Synku is a mobile application that merges audio and image processing with human interpretation to speculate on the production of sensory objects. Sensory objects are representations of sensory phenomena interpreted and used by both people and software. The SynKu application enabled us to explore how algorithms help to change and legitimate the reconstruction of sensory phenomena across self-tracking platforms.
