So it’s my first time at CHI. Pretty amazing so far … Will blog about more later.
I’m in the first poster rotation, starting this afternoon: “Towards inferring language expertise using eye tracking” Drop by my poster if you’re around (or try to spot me, I’m wearing the white “Kai@CHI” Shirt today :)).
Here’s the abstract of our work, as well as the link to the paper.
“We present initial work towards recognizing reading activities. This paper describes our efforts detect the English skill level of a user and infer which words are difficult for them to understand. We present an initial study of 5 students and show our findings regarding the skill level assessment. We explain a method to spot difficult words. Eye tracking is a promising technology to examine and assess a user’s skill level.”
