PhD Proposal Presentation

  1. 1. Mixed-Initiative Mixed Initiative for Situated Interaction with Public Displays p y Jorge C. S. Cardoso Rui José
  2. 2. Summary • Motivation • Challenges • Approach • Objectives • Methodology • Current Work
  3. 3. Motivation Public digital displays have become ubiquitous but have not yet atained their full potential as cultural reference objects of a place, objects with an active role in a place, a source of meaningful situated interaction, a mirror of the social environment, and something that helps define that environment.
  4. 4. Challenges How to automatically infer and characterise the social environment of a public display p p y How to provide interactive features that users p recognize and can use in a shared manner How to entice and react to users’ interactions with the display
  5. 5. Approach Interaction is fundamental to achieve this view not only to support public situated interaction with and between people, but also to enable the display to characterise and adapt to the place.
  6. 6. Approach Build on the concept of digital footprints that result from interactions with public displays. Just as a footprint can tell us something about the person that made it, so can a display learn about a user by looking at his digital footprints footprints.
  7. 7. Approach Develop mixed-initiative approaches that allow the display to entice people to interact and guide people’s interaction in a way that allows the display to collect traces of activity and interests
  8. 8. Objectives Develop a mixed-initiative interaction model that builds on the digital footprints by studying interaction mechanisms that produce relevant footprints, p , studying how to provide those interactive features in an understandable and familiar way way, studying ways to generate them efficiently, and studying system-initiative approaches to entice users into producing more digital footprints
  9. 9. Objectives Understand if this approach is effective at generating an evolving display that adapts to the place generating a display that is perceived as a shared object fostering new kinds of social interaction
  10. 10. Methodology Study interactive features and the digital footprints that result from them and that the display can use to characterise the place Study interface conventions used in standard GUI desktop or Web interfaces and how they may be adapted to pub c display interaction public d sp ay te act o Perform real settings experiments with different situated display solutions
  11. 11. Current work Cardoso, J. C. S. & José, R. Meersman, R.; Herrero, P. & Dillon, T. (ed.) A framework for context-aware adaptation in public displays OTM 2009 Workshops, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2009, 118-127 Study interaction conventions used on standard systems like desktop or web interfaces that can be adapted to public displays
  12. 12. The End Thank you!
