Book Description :

The Graphical User Interface (GUI), as the most prevailing type of User Interface (UI) in today's interactive applications, restricts the interaction with a computer to the visual modality and is therefore not suited for some users (e.g., with limited literacy or typing skills), in some circumstances (e.g., while moving around, with their hands or eyes busy) or when the environment is constrained (e.g., the keyboard and the mouse are not available). In order to go beyond the GUI constraints, the Multimodal (MM) UIs apear as paradigm that provide users with great expressive power, naturalness and flexibility. In this thesis we argue that developing MM UIs combining graphical and vocal modalities is an activity that could benefit from the application of a methodology which is composed of: a set of models, a method manipulating these models and the tools implementing the method. Therefore, we define a design space-based method that is supported by model-to-model colored transformations in order to obtain MM UIs of information systems. The design space is composed of explicitly defined design options that clarify the development process in a structured way in order to require less design effort. The feasability of the methodology is demonstrated through three case studies with different levels of complexity and coverage. In addition, an empirical study is conducted with end-users in order to measure the relative usability level provided by different design decisions.

Book Description :

The theme of the 1997 INTERACT conference, 'Discovering New Worlds ofHCI', signals major changes that are taking place with the expansion of new technologies into fresh areas of work and leisure throughout the world and new pervasive, powerful systems based on multimedia and the internet. HCI has a vital role to play in these new worlds, to ensure that people using the new technologies are empowered rather than subjugated to the technology that they increasingly have to use. In addition, outcomes from HCI research studies over the past 20 years are now finding their way into many organisations and helping to improve and enhance work practices. These factors have strongly influenced the INTERACT'97 Committee when creating the conference programme, with the result that, besides the more traditional HCI research and education focus found in previous INTERACT conferences, one strand of the 1997 conference has been devoted to industry and another to multimedia. The growth in the IFIP TCI3 committee itself reflects the expansion ofHCI into new worlds. Membership oflFIP TC13 has risen to now include representatives of 24 IFIP member country societies from many parts of the world. In 1997, IFIP TCl3 breaks new ground by holding its sixth INTERACT conference in the Asia-Pacific region. This is a significant departure from previous INTERACT conferences, that were all held in Europe, and is especially important for the Asia-Pacific region, as HCI expands beyond its traditional base.

Book Description :

From Federal Express's package tracking Website, to Amazon.com, netcentric computing has been evolving, slowly-but-surely, one solution at a time, since the early 1990s. Over the past year or so, the trickle has grown into a torrent of netcentric innovations of wider and wider scope, developed in companies around the globe. Now, a new enterprise computing paradigm has sprung into being. Until now, there has been no comprehensive netcentric model, clearly defined netcentric system architecture, or established set of guiding principles to help you gear up for this next stage in the evolution of enterprise computing. written by the experts at Andersen Consulting, Netcentric and Client/Server Computing: A Practical Guide, offers you this and more. Of course, a book can never take the place of experts who wrote it, but this revised, updated, and expanded edition of Andersen Consulting's noted guide is an important first step in acquiring the knowledge and skills you need to bring netcentric capabilities into your organization. You'll learn from 13 acknowledged world experts what netcentric computing is, how it works, and how you can use it to provide your organization with an unstoppable competitive edge. Based upon their experiences with mission-critical netcentric implementations at 100 of the most successful business organizations on the planet, these experts explain how netcentric computing can help you enable new business capabilities. Using dozens of fascinating case examples, they show you how to seamlessly integrate computing, communications, and knowledge resources in order to forge solid links among your company's employees, units, customers, suppliers, and partners, regardless of time, location, device, or content. And, they provide priceless advice and guidance on how to exploit the endless array of possibilities provided by netcentric computing to develop exciting new customer services, identify new markets, cut costs, engineer internal processes for improved business performance, and more. Netcentric and Client/Server Computing is divided into four, self-contained sections for ease of reference. Section I introduces you to basic netcentric principles and concepts, provides an overview of state-of-the-art in netcentric computing models, and develops a solid business case for netcentric computing. Section II acquaints you with the various technologies involved and describes a comprehensive netcentric architecture. Section III is devoted to crucial analysis, design, and implementation issues, including design specifics for architectures, applications, and networks; rollout strategies; and ongoing management of distributed operations. Section IV explores emerging technologies and their likely impact on the future of netcentric computing.

Book Description :

Multimedia Applications discusses the basic characteristics of multimedia document handling, programming, security, human computer interfaces, and multimedia application services. The overall goal of the book is to provide a broad understanding of multimedia systems and applications in an integrated manner. A user enjoys a multimedia application only if all pieces of the end-to-end solution fit together. This means that a multimedia application and its user interface must be developed in an integrated fashion with underlying multimedia middleware, operating systems, networks, security, and multimedia devices. In this book we will present fundamental information and properties of hypermedia document handling, multimedia security and various aspects of multimedia applications. Especially of interest to the readers will be information about document handling and their standards, programming of multimedia applications, design of multimedia information at human computer interfaces, multimedia security challenges such as encryption and watermarking, multimedia in education, as well as multimedia applications to assist preparation, processing and application of multimedia content. Ralf Steinmetz is Professor of Multimedia Communications at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, and he is chairman of the Board of the Telemedia Center httc.. Together with more than 20 researchers, he is working towards his vision of "truly seamless multimedia communications". He has co-authored over 200 refereed publications, serves as a member of the board of numerous professional committees, is an ICCC Governor, and is a Fellow of both the IEEE and the ACM. Klara Nahrstedt is the Ralph and Catherine Fisher Professor at the department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urban-Champagne, USA. She is an expert in the area of multimedia systems and networks and focuses on quality of service management problems. Currently, she serves as the editor-in-chief of the ACM/Springer Multimedia Systems Journal.

GET BOOK

Book Description :

A stimulating, eclectic accountof new media that finds its origins in old media, particularly the cinema. In this book Lev Manovich offers the first systematic and rigorous theory of new media. He places new media within the histories of visual and media cultures of the last few centuries. He discusses new media's reliance on conventions of old media, such as the rectangular frame and mobile camera, and shows how new media works create the illusion of reality, address the viewer, and represent space. He also analyzes categories and forms unique to new media, such as interface and database. Manovich uses concepts from film theory, art history, literary theory, and computer science and also develops new theoretical constructs, such as cultural interface, spatial montage, and cinegratography. The theory and history of cinema play a particularly important role in the book. Among other topics, Manovich discusses parallels between the histories of cinema and of new media, digital cinema, screen and montage in cinema and in new media, and historical ties between avant-garde film and new media.
