Leitão, Carla; Maciel, Cristiano; Piccolo, Lara Schibelsky Godoy; Salgado, Luciana; de Souza, Patricia C.; Prates, Raquel; Pereira, Roberto and Pereira, Vinicius Carvalho (2017). Human Values in HCI: a challenge for the GrandIHC-BR. In: Proceedings of the XVI Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems - IHC 2017, ACM Press, article no. 70.



In 2012, the Brazilian HCI community identified Five Grand Research Challenges in Brazil, for the timespan between 2012 and 2022. In this paper, we discuss 3 issues: (a)what our community has done so far to advance with Challenge 4 - Human Values; (b) what results had effective impacts; and (c) what challenges remain and/or have come up. To do so, we present our perspectives on studies related to the three central axes of this challenge (ethics, privacy and post-mortem digital legacy), along with their potential impacts. Our observations point out that a compartmentalized, narrow mindset might be preventing us from advancing to greater reflections, which could challenge paradigms and articulate the aforementioned axes within the Grand Challenges.
