Invited talk by Marc Erich Latoschik on June 24th

latoschik-marc-pictureWe are happy to announce Prof. Dr. Marc Erich Latoschik from the Human-Computer Interaction Lab at Würzburg University will be visiting CrossWorlds on June 23-24th. As part of our guest researcher program and series of talks on “Interdisciplinary Research on Social Technologies”,  Prof. Latoschik will also give an invited talk titled “Intelligent, Interactive, Multimodal – Techniques for Future Human-Computer Interfaces” on June 24th, 9.00-11.00 am in Room 1/204 (main building in Straße der Nationen). His talk will introduce the state-of-the-art of multimodal interfaces, from scientific prototypes to computer game technology and will highlight some ongoing developments. CrossWorlds invites all interested students and university staff to attend the talk. Please spread the word!

You can read the abstract of the talk after the jump.


Multimodal interfaces in Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Realities promise to become novel forms of Human-Computer Interaction, taking into account the requirements defined by the physical, cognitive, and perceptive skills of users. Central aspect of such interfaces is their interactive nature combined with simulated spatial 3D content and environments, paving way for enhanced embodiment, immersion, and presence. These interfaces comprehensively apply multimodality to the output as well as to the input side of closely-coupled human-computer systems. A variety of output channels for, e.g., visual, auditive, or haptics stimuli is complemented by multiple interaction paradigms based on direct manipulation, touch, speech and gesture, or even virtual agents. While each of the former I/O-related aspects in itself defines its own sets of requirements and methods to solve it, the highly interactive nature of such systems drastically complicates conceptual and technical solutions. This talk will introduce the state-of-the-art, from scientific prototypes to computer game technology and will highlight some ongoing developments. Along the way, we will point-out chances as well as critical aspects of this technology which has already begun to enter our everyday lives, from our living-rooms to future work places.
