DEI lecture – Augusto Esteves

Alameda and Taguspark campi

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DEI) will organise the lecture “Motion Matching: A New Interaction Paradigm for the IoT?” delivered by professor Augusto Esteves (Edinburgh Napier University) on February 28, at 1 p.m., in Alameda and Taguspark campi.

Taguspark: VC 0-19 (DSI room)
Alameda: Multipurpose room 0.19, Informatics building II.

Motion matching is a novel interaction technique designed for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) that is device-independent, scalable, and consistent. Unlike traditional interfaces where targets are static (to facilitate pointing), motion matching interfaces display targets that move continuously in a specific trajectory – with users selecting a target by simply tracking that target’s movement in real-time. This seminar will introduce different case studies of the technique, covering varied IoT domains such as wearables, smart rooms, smart TVs, and even augmented-reality.

Augusto Esteves is an Assistant Professor at Edinburgh Napier University, where he leads the HCI Lab. This is an interdisciplinary research group that designs, develops and studies novel interaction techniques for the computers of the future. Prior to this, Augusto was a researcher at the Siemens Healthcare Technology Center, Lancaster University, the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, the Eindhoven University of Technology, and the Korean Advanced Institute Science and Technology.
