Conference Proceeding
Kettley, S., & Smyth, M. (2007)
Plotting affect and premises for use in aesthetic interaction design: towards evaluation of the everyday. In N. Bryan-Kinns, A. Blanford, P. Curzon, & L. Nigay (Eds.), People and computers XX Engage : proceedings of HCI 2006, 17-22. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-84628-664-3
This short paper presents an experimental approach to the difficulty of evaluating interactive systems as artefacts for everyday life. The problem arises from the event-like n...

Lessons from experience: making theorem provers more co-operative.

Conference Proceeding
Lowe, H., Cumming, A., Smyth, M., & Varey, A. (1995)
Lessons from experience: making theorem provers more co-operative. In Proceedings of the Second Workshop on User Interfaces for Theorm Provers, 67-74
We describe our experiences in trying to build a co-operative theorem proving system. Our model of co-operation is that of a user and an automaton combining forces to prove th...
