Successful IT products often push technical boundaries, but they also often meet—and even reveal—human needs and desires. As a field, HCI/d focuses on the ways that technologies can address needs that result in desired experiences. That is, HCI/d seeks to understand and advocate for users and other stakeholders, melding such insights with technologies to craft tools, systems, and services.
