Morgan & Claypool is proud to announce a just published title in our series
on Human-Centered Informatics (HCI).  We will be at CHI 2015 and welcome you
to visit the HCI publisher, Diane Cerra in our booth.


The Paradigm Shift to Multimodality in Contemporary Computer Interfaces
Sharon Oviatt, Incaa Designs
Philip R. Cohen, VoiceBox Technologies
ISBN (Print): 9781627057516
ISBN (eBook): 9781627057523
April 13, 2015, 240 pages


During the last decade, cell phones with multimodal interfaces based on
combined new media have become the dominant computer interface worldwide.
Multimodal interfaces support mobility and expand the expressive power of
human input to computers. They have shifted the fulcrum of human-computer
interaction much closer to the human. This book explains the foundation of
human-centered multimodal interaction and interface design, based on the
cognitive and neurosciences, as well as the major benefits of multimodal
interfaces for human cognition and performance. It describes the
data-intensive methodologies used to envision, prototype, and evaluate new
multimodal interfaces. From a system development viewpoint, this book
outlines major approaches for multimodal signal processing, fusion,
architectures, and techniques for robustly interpreting users' meaning.
Multimodal interfaces have been commercialized extensively for field and
mobile applications during the last decade. Research also is growing rapidly
in areas like multimodal data analytics, affect recognition, accessible
interfaces, embedded and robotic interfaces, machine learning and new hybrid
processing approaches, and similar topics. The expansion of multimodal
interfaces is part of the long-term evolution of more expressively powerful
input to computers, a trend that will substantially improve support for
human cognition and performance.
