AIS Transactions on HCI: Vol. 12 Iss. 3 published

(Oct. 30, 2020)
The September 2020 issue of THCI comprises three papers.

  • The first paper entitled “Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence: Three Fresh Ideas” is a commentary by Ben Shneiderman where he offers three fundamental ideas to the design of Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HCAI) by emphasizing the importance of human control and governance structures. The paper provides suggestions for developing reliable, safe, and trustworthy HCAI, as well as fifteen recommendations for the governance structures for reliable, safe, and trustworthy HCAI.
  • In the second paper entitled “Understanding the Interaction between Older Adults and Soft Service Robots: Insights from Robotics and the Technology Acceptance Model” by Loong Yi Lee, Weng Marc Lim, Pei-Lee Teh, Omar Ali Syadiqeen Malik, and Surya Nurzaman, the authors developed a teleoperated human-sized soft service robot and studied its acceptance among older adults.
  • The third paper entitled “The Impact of Anonymous Peripheral Contributions on Open Source Software Development” by Sherae Daniel, Tingting (Rachel) Chung, and Pratyush Nidhi Sharma examined the effects of the ratio of identified and anonymous peripheral contributions on open source software project performance and the moderating effects of developer versus end-user applications.
