2018 Proceedings of the Twenty-Seventh International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We present an assistant teaching novice users how to operate electronic tools, such as drills, saws, and sanders, in the context of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home improvement projects.  ...  Novice users require assistance when performing handicraft tasks. Adequate instruction ensures task completion and conveys knowledge and abilities required to perform the task.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is done within the technology transfer project "Do it yourself, but not alone: Companion-Technology for DIY support" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).  ...

A Schnittmuster for Crafting Context-Sensitive Toolkits

Janis Lena Meissner, Angelika Strohmayer, Peter Wright, Geraldine Fitzpatrick
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '18  
DIY-making can be an expensive pastime if makers are relying on ready-made toolkits, specialised materials and off-shelf components.  ...  However, as soon as the novices become a little more advanced, these toolkits often do not fit the specific requirements of personal maker projects anymore.  ...  The other toolkit materials were very similar to the ones used in the Tools for Wools project.  ...
