The all-seeing eye

The evil all-seeing eye AI can be if not bestowed with good ethics.

A human-computer interface (HCI) is the point of interaction between humans and computers. It includes hardware, software, and any peripheral devices that allow humans and computers to communicate with each other. The purpose of an HCI is to provide a way for humans to interact with computers in an effective and efficient manner. In other words, HCIs are designed to make it easy for humans to use computers and to get the most out of them. With the increasing complexity of computer systems, it is becoming increasingly important to design effective HCIs. Good design can mean the difference between a user-friendly interface and one that is confusing and difficult to use. In many cases, the effectiveness of an HCI can be the deciding factor in whether or not a particular computer system is successful. As such, designers of HCIs must carefully consider the needs and psychology/emotions of users when designing their interfaces.

Bots need to have friendly faces

If you’ve ever been to a store and had a helpful employee offer to assist you, then you know how important it is for customer service representatives to have friendly faces. The same principle applies to bots. In order for them to be effective, they need to have faces that convey friendliness and approachability. Otherwise, people will be hesitant to interact with them. The face of a bot should be designed to put people at ease and encourage them to ask questions. Additionally, the face should be expressive enough to convey empathy and understanding. Only by meeting these criteria will bots be able to build the rapport necessary to be successful.

So … why this page?

You may have noticed that, as you move your mouse pointer around the screen (above), a pair of friendly eyes follow it. This effect is called “mouse tracking”, and it’s used to make web pages more personable. By making it appear as though the page is watching you, eye tracking can create a sense of rapport and make you more likely to trust the site. In addition, mouse tracking can be used to collect data about how users interact with the page. This information can be used to improve the design of the site and make it more user-friendly.

Editor’s note: We used to create the eyes and embed them into this page. It’s super easy, you should try it too.
