Sports, data, and HCI: SIGCHI Spring 2014 Seminar, 10th April

Sports, fitness, and health applications are fast increasing their share in mobile markets. The users are tracked by the sensors of wearables, mobile phones, and other gadgets, and the applications collect, process and present the data on the user interfaces of desktop and mobile apps. HCI relates to the collection of user data, management of data and data sources, and the applications and UIs that provide the data of the user to the user.
