Multimodal Interaction

Indian Institute of Technology Madras and NPTEL via Swayam

This course may be unavailable.


In this course we will set the basics for an understanding of multimodal communication between humans and multimodal interaction between humans and machines. We will start with clarifying the basic principles of human-human communication and human-machine interaction. We will then describe the processes taking place in humans when perceiving auditory, visual and tactile signals, as well as how these perceptions are integrated in order to form a multimodal perception. The signals can be generated and received by machines which are able to interact with humans in limited domains. The set-up of such machines will be discussed, and limitations as well as potential solutions to overcome these limitations will be explained.
