    Recipient of the Grant PSL -NYU Global Alliance for the project:

    “Disorientation: from remediation to prevention’’

    This research project is on how people look for directions in a huge diversity of contexts. Research will

    focus on two targets: to collect a sufficient number of case studies to highlight the determinants of disorientation;

    and to produce a translational-design handbook with emphasis on solutions: from guidelines to

    designing spaces, to procedures to follow for assisting people in different disorientation situations.

    Time-offset interaction applications (TOIA) allow simulating conversations with people who have previously recorded relevant video utterances, which are played in response to their interacting user. TOIAs have great potential for preserving cross-generational and cross-cultural histories, online teaching, simulated interviews, etc. Current TOIAs exist in niche contexts involving high production costs. Democratizing TOIA presents different challenges when creating appropriate pre-recordings, designing different user stories, and creating simple online interfaces for experimentation. We open-source TOIA 2.0, a user-centered time-offset interaction application, and make it available for everyone who wants to interact with people’s pre-recordings, or create their pre-recordings.
