Intervention and End-User Development

Thomas Herrmann, Christopher Lentzsch, Martin Degeling


Abstract

Intervention is a new concept for human-computer interaction to help users to cope with the increasing complexity of automated processes in socio- technical settings. We relate the paradigms of End-User Development with it and show the differences, commonalities and emergent areas through a theoretical analysis of a smart home setting. Implications for the design of intervention user interfaces are derived and the interplay of interventions with and their support of End-User Development is shown.
