Palestra do DEI – Augusto Esteves

Técnico - Campi Alameda e Taguspark

 O Departamento de Engenharia Informática (DEI) promove no próximo dia 28 de fevereiro, às 13:00h, em ambos os campi Alameda e Taguspark, a palestra “Motion Matching: A New Interaction Paradigm for the IoT?”, proferida pelo professor Augusto Esteves (Edinburgh Napier University).

Taguspark: VC 0-19 (sala da DSI)
Alameda: Sala Polivalente 0.19 no Pavilhão de Informática 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.
