Entry for:150 Years of Discovery: Emerging Research
1. Please provide a brief summary of your video and research.
Highlighting techniques are a diverse class of visual effects that make users aware of salient information in a timely manner. Any visual effect can potentially be used and manipulated to create highlighting effects. However, software designers currently have limited knowledge about how to control their effects, often having to resort to multiple rounds of trial and error. My research investigates how we can measure the effects of highlighting techniques to help designers make better design decisions.
