國立臺北大學通訊工程學系前身為國立台北大學通訊工程研究所,於2004年成立,位於南港軟體園區、中研院及新竹科學園區間,三峽交流道旁,為台灣高科技產業的中心點。本系主要發展通訊高科技產業,強調獨立思考及創新設計能力之訓練,並要求學生參與研究計畫,以驗證所學和獲取經驗,同時培養理論與實務兼備、人文與科技整合的高級人才。發展方向為通訊系統設計、通訊晶片設計、網路交換、數位訊號處理、多媒體通訊等相關技術。近年積極參與工程科技教育認證(IEET),並於2010年通過認證。目前設有通訊工程學士班、碩士班、資通科技產業碩士專班、及國際學生碩士班。

題目:From Managing Scarce Attention to Leveraging it For Potentially Rich Collaboration

Abstract:

People have scarce attention. So are smartphone users. Research shows that smartphone users only pay intermittent attention on their phones. As a result, much research effort in mobile attention has been trying to manage scarce attention by minimizing the interruption of notifications to the users through detecting interruptible and opportune moments for sending notifications. However, while one person's attention may be scarce, aggregated attention is abundant and can be of great value if it is properly leveraged. In this talk, I present my current and future research work in managing smartphone users' attention when it is scarce. Then I move on to research focusing on leveraging aggregated attention to perform mobile crowdsourcing tasks such as collecting labeled data and information sharing. 

Bio:

Yung-Ju (Stanley) Chang is an assistant professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at the National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan. He received his M.S. (2009) and Ph.D. (2016) degree in Science of Information in the School of Information at the University of Michigan. In 2016, he was a Research Associate at the University of Michigan, and then he joined the National Chiao Tung University and led the Mobile and Ubiquitous Interaction Lab (MUI Lab). Stanley's main research interests lie in the intersection between Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with a primary focus on supporting mobile communication and attention,  mobile crowdsourcing, and city exploration. Recently he also starts to study human intelligence interaction and attention in Virtual Reality.
