User Interface

There are several domains in computer science. Database, algorithms, networks, etc. I'm rather specialized in User Interface.

Usually, UI shortcuts Graphical User Interface. However, UI in general means the relationship between users and computers, and as computers are connected together, interfaces between users.

This encompasses software tools to help users communicate and share data, through the computer.

Note that a particular case of user to user communication is when the user is communicating with him/herself, i.e. when using PIM (Personal Information Manager) and other productivity tools that power up the user experience on a computer.
