Abstract:
Personal Computer plus Graphic User Interface made history of today's desktop
computing. As computing becoming pervasive, people shouldn't interact with the
computing devices always by keyboard and mouse. Three major HCI issues in
pervasive computing are natural interfaces, context awareness and experience
record. At Tsinghua University, we study these HCI issues in smart space.
Smart space systems (Smart Classroom and SEMIC) in our lab are with multi-
modality user interfaces, such as pen-like direct manipulation on multiple
displays and voice command. Systems can provide user attentive services and
automatic experience record based on sensors and software platform.
