This page was created when the Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI) Manifesto was published and the Animal-Computer Interaction Lab was founded in 2011. It lists the names of people who wish to express their support for ACI or what we do at the ACI Lab. If you wish to express your support, please post here, as a comment, your name, discipline or specialism, and affiliation; those details will then be included in this page.

  1. A fascinating and under-explored area that should be close to the heart of any dog-loving HCI researcher 🙂

    It’s nice to hear about others with the same research interests. I research animals and games/ play and make games and play environments for animals.

  4. I think that this is a fascinating area that you have started exploring.

  5. My thesis references your manifesto. More designers should look into the possibilities of ACI and consider how these explorations may in turn reveal opportunities or unmet needs for humans.

    Clara, this is a long-needed generalisation of the notion of HCI which will have far reaching implications. Also, good news for our friends from other species. Well done and more power to your arm.

    Have been following this project with great interest, and was pleasantly surprised to see from this page how many other people have done work in the same area!
    I’m impressed both by the originality of the project itself and by the fact that your group actually takes the principles of its science (that animals are thinking people) fully into account in how it treats its animal volunteers. So much psychology research revolves around the principle that animals have thoughts and feelings, but then ignores this in how it treats its subjects. More power to your elbows.
