Mediating Attention for Second Screen Companion Content
This week, one of our speakers is Timothy Neate. Tim previously studied at the University of York where he gained a BSc (Hons) and MSc (by research) degrees. His PhD, working with Prof. Matt Jones and Dr. Michael Evans (BBC R&D), focusses on the design of dual screen television and investigating interfaces that compensate for splitting user attention across multiple foci.
In this talk, Tim will discuss his work into investigating methods to mediate a user's attention between multiple devices in a dual screen TV scenario and the implications for broadcasters and application designers alike.
