Interfaces: Hands, Eyes, Voice and Mind
report examines the current state of computer interfaces, organizes
key issues and puts them in context, and succinctly explains how
the technology works.
Research in human-computer interaction spans a wide range, from
improving graphical user interfaces to conveying information to
computers via speech recognition, gesture recognition, and gaze
tracking. Researchers are also working to give computers a broader
awareness of humans through mixed modes of communication and tracking
people’s positions and movements.
The report includes an executive summary, a list of 10 developments
to look for as these cutting-edge technologies take shape, and a
section of 18 researchers to watch, including links to their Web
pages. It also includes a quick tour of 27 recent developments in
six areas and a section of 25 in-depth news stories from TRN.
The stories are organized into six categories: screen interfaces,
hands-free input, speech and sound interfaces, gesture and multimodal
interfaces, computer senses and emotion, and neural interfaces.
Making the Future reports contain live links, and can
be read on a computer, printed and archived.
