Attention Feedback for Data Exploration Tasks

  • With the use of Business Intelligence and Analytics (BI&A) systems, companies collect and analyze data from various sources to support data-driven decision making. Despite the fact that having information access comes with huge potentials to support better decision making, there are also challenges with regards to users’ limited attentional resources. Therefore, there is a need to provide solutions addressing users’ challenges in managing limited attentional resources while exploring the provided data-driven insights. Existing research in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) field highlights the importance of designing Attentive User Interfaces (AUI) to assist users’ attentional processes using eye tracking technology. This project builds upon the disciplines of HCI, Information Systems (IS) and psychology and follows the Design Science Research (DSR) methodology to design AUIs that support user’s data exploration tasks.
