About the Keynote - Intelligent Interfaces: Challenges and Opportunities

The exploration of novel sensing to facilitate new interaction modalities is an active research topic in Human-Computer Interaction. Across the breadth of HCI, we can see the development of new forms of interaction underpinned by the appropriation or adaptation of sensing techniques based on the measurement of sound, light, electric fields, radio waves, biosignals etc. In this talk, Professor Quigley will delve into a range of novel interactions which are supported by new forms of sensing on mobile and wearable devices.
