Modalité d'interaction et multimodalité

Abstract : My research field is in the area of engineering for Human Computer Interaction. My contributions to the field therefore include ergonomic as well as software design (software architecture). My primary motivation is to develop ways for making novel interaction techniques more usable. I first developed a design space for multimodality. The considerations involved in this design space are not only based on technological capabilities but also on the psychological consequences of the design features on future users. With the results of this work in hand (modality definition and design space), I then examined two research avenues. In the first one, I focused on output multimodal user interfaces applied to visualization of large information spaces. In the second one, I concentrated on new interaction modalities based on the augmented reality paradigm. For each of these two avenues, new ergonomic properties, design rules and patterns, software architectural solutions and new interaction techniques such as the clickable reality and the augmented stroll have been developed.
