The field of Human-Computer Interaction has long engaged in creating and studying online tools that serve as information resources. However, few studies explore how people, particularly underserved populations, find these tools. This study examines the role that online search plays in the access to online information resources using access to online Computer Science (CS) education as a case study. First, we conduct a survey with U.S. parents to identify terms used to search for online CS education. Second, we look at the search results for those terms.
Dressing is one of the most common activities in human society. Perfecting the skill of dressing can take an average child three to four years of daily practice. The challenge is primarily due to the combined difficulty of coordinating different body parts and manipulating soft and deformable objects (clothes). We present a technique to synthesize human dressing by controlling a human character to put on an article of simulated clothing. We identify a set of primitive actions which account for the vast majority of motions observed in human dressing.
