IM2 - Interactive Multimodal Information Management
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), IM2 - Interactive Multimodal Information Management, researches interaction between humans and computers. At the forefront is the development of interfaces, therefore researchers study how spoken, written and gestural language may be combined in multimedia systems. These so-called multimodal interactions cover a broad range of applications: from voice recognition and computer visualisation, to dealing with multimedia information. The new interfaces are to be used wherever current technologies such as keyboard, mouse and screen no longer suffice for the complex interaction between humans and machine. Thanks to the NCCR, the IDIAP research institute in Martigny has been considerably extended and has intensified its cooperation with EPF Lausanne.
