Title: Toward Live Programming of the Real World

Dr. Jun Kato


In this talk, I plan to briefly introduce my prior work on improving programming experience by combining text-based programming and programming-by-example, which I call “Programming with Example (PwE)”. PwE makes use of example data retrieved from the real world during text-based programming. To support this approach, I propose integration of graphical representations of example data (photos and videos) into existing development environments. Concrete projects are listed on I will also share my thoughts on HCI research and ideas on future research directions.


Jun Kato is a researcher at Media Interaction Research Group, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), where he works on designing tools for programming interactive media content. He is interested in broad area of Human-Computer Interaction, but has been focused on improving programming experience by creating toolkits and integrated development environments. He received a Ph.D in Computer Science from The University of Tokyo in March, 2014. Prior to graduation, he worked as research intern at Microsoft Research Asia, Redmond, and Adobe Research Seattle. He gained academic recognition such as Microsoft Research Asia Fellowship 2012 and ACM CHI 2013 Best Paper Honorable Mention.
