Interaction paradigms, Paradigmas de interacción, Embodied interaction, and Paradigmes d'interacció
In the last decades new interaction paradigms have emerged: Tangible User Interfaces, ubiquitous computing, wearable devices, mixed- reality among others. Such paradigms extended the user interface beyond the keyboard and mouse, and physical interaction has gained importance. This transformation represents a challenge-opportunity for interaction and experience designers. As a consequence, design frameworks are incorporating embodied cognition theories, getting inspiration from phenomenology and aiming to integrate body, mind and technology. This interaction design perspective is known as embodied interaction. This dissertation aims to understand how to design and implement embodied interactive systems for mathematics learning for children, including sighted children and children with visual impairments (VIs). Thus, we might capitalize technological progress into actual opportunities to better support learning. In this context, the thesis explores the development of three interactive systems for mathematics learning and the evaluation of two of them. Through this prototyping approach we discuss design implications for embodied interaction systems in learning contexts, contributing with the generation of intermediate-level knowledge. Finally, we also confirm and extend previous research in this field.

Facial asymmetry -- Care and treatment
Byline: Yue Sun, State Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases, National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.; Wen Du; Chunwei Xu; Yunfeng Lin; Xian Liu; En Luo Abstract Computer-aided surgery has been widely used in treatment of hemifacial microsomia and matured in recent decades. These techniques include the computer-aided design, virtual surgical planning, modeling surgery, rapid prototyping techniques, intraoperative navigation and so on. The purpose of this article is to summarize the current application of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing technology in the treatment for hemifacial microsomia during the last 5 years, as well as the views and discussions on some topics, and finally introduce a method of our team. Our effort is that using the holes predrilled in cutting guides, the pre-bent titanium plates are easily placed. Avoiding potential bone autorotation caused by unfitness between conventional titanium plates and bone surface, which keeps the bone fixation precisely in line with the preoperative virtual plan and reduce the movement of bone segments due to the undesirable stress of the plates.
Building Information, Modeling (BIM), Internet of Things (IoT), Interaction, Real-Time Information, Responsive Architecture, Human-Computer Interaction, User Centered Design, Post- Occupancy Analysis, Thermal Comfort Optimization, Energy Efficiency, and Arquitectura y tecnología de computadoras
Symbiotic Data Platform is a receptive-responsive tool for ‘personalized’ thermal comfort optimization. The research focuses on; searching new possibilities of how to upgrade BIM methodology to be interactive, the possibility of using existing BIM data during the occupation phase of the building, and also, researching on the potential of enhancing energy efficiency & comfort optimization together by taking benefit of BIM material data. The objective of the research is to take benefit of the massive existing data that is embedded in Building Information Models, by exporting the information and using in other mediums as input. The research addresses both energy efficiency and sustainable environment concerns due to augmenting the accuracy of analysis by material data and real-time information, while focusing on personalized comfort optimization. The final product is an interface that addresses the contemporary concerns of global facts and the new generations responsible society. The research is developed by designing and testing via Prototyping thanks to IoT technology, and investigating the possibilities of adding BIM data to the prototypes’ algorithm.
