Which smart devices do you like? Factors that affect device acceptability

Kai Zhan, Ingrid Zukerman

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearch


    This paper investigates users' attitudes toward devices. The study starts with a web-based survey that elicits users' demographic information, their ratings of selected devices, their views about various aspects of devices, and their preferences regarding interface features. We performed factor analysis to extract latent factors that influence device acceptability, and employed weighting methods to determine users' attitudes toward these factors and toward factors defined by us. We also analyzed the impact of users' demographics on their attitudes toward different devices, and obtained additional insights from users' responses to questions regarding ten factors and to four open-ended questions.
