Reflection: What is Interaction

Reflection: What is Interaction

Dubberly’s article, What is Interaction? Are there Different Types, presented information on different perspectives on interaction, models of interaction, and how interaction functions between humans and objects, humans and systems, and between systems.

Interaction is a way of framing the relationship between people and objects designed for them—and thus a way of framing the activity of design. - Dubberly et al.
Man-Machine System: This model depicts the basic feedback loop model of interaction in which a user and the system are in a cycle of communication.
Gulf of Execution and Evaluation: This model shows the steps of user ability (execution) vs. ability to meet the goal (evaluation).
Seven Stages of Action: This model helps to demonstrate the progression interaction from both a top down and bottom up condition.

  1. 0-0 Reacting
  2. 0-1 Regulating
  3. 0-2 Learning
  4. 1-1 Balancing
  5. 1-2 Managing and Entertaining
  6. 2-2 Conversing

Multiple system types can be seen within a single system. From the most basic, 0-0 Reacting, where an input equates to a simple output (ex. flipping a light switch or clicking a hyperlink) to the most complicated, where systems interact with one another on our behalf (ex Google assistant calling to make a reservation).
