CSAIL Student’s Video Garners Playful Award

Graduate student Michael Bernstein and a group of collaborators have been awarded a Golden Mouse Award from the prestigious CHI Conference. The conference, an event on human factors in computing systems, has been held annually since 1982; this is the first year in which a video showcase has been held. Twenty-five videos were accepted in three different categories: Best Research Video, Best Design Video, and Best Entertaining Video, the latter of which was won by the submission of Bernstein and his colleagues, “CHIstory.” The video, a parody history of human-computer interaction, has contributors from eight universities and organizations across the United States and Europe.
