The talk was a comprehensive take on the historical background, current trends and future implications of the HCI field.

Dr. Dinesh Katre took us through various aspects of HCI field with witty anecdotes and a fluidity that never let most of us realize the passage of time. At the end of it, it looked like there is still more to be taken.

The CDAC case study regarding teaching village farmers about Watershed management through the use of satellite data and a 3D simulation of village, all in form of a game package, was exciting as well as gave many insights into HCI process.

This was a very practical talk that touched the theory as well as application of HCI in real world context. We do look forward to more such sessions.
