    In virtual reality interfaces, realistic animation of virtual agents enhances human-computer interaction by supporting direct engagement in the virtual environment. The paper discusses visual programming by example which allows designers to define animation rules by “training” agents, thereby building behavioral rules into specification models that run automatically during the executio...

    Multiuser virtual environments (VEs) raise challenging research questions concerning how users interact with objects, applications, and other users, and how distributed VEs behave when the number of users increases. The Distributed Interactive Virtual Environment (DIVE) is a software platform for multiuser VEs that has served as a toolkit for many distributed VE applications. It emphasizes network...

    The EFX digital editing and effects environment integrates facilities for nonlinear editing of digitized film, video, and audio with sophisticated image-manipulating special effects. EFX offers an intuitive, visual, direct-manipulation user interface for building multimedia compositions. This front end, discussed in the paper, is coupled with a powerful parallel-processing computer that computes t... View full abstract»

    Multimedia documents differ significantly from traditional documents composed of text and geometric graphics. The introduction of continuous media such as audio, video, and computer-generated graphics imposes new requirements on document representation and information storage. We designed an architecture for creating multimedia documents by means of a logical structure, a layout structure, and a r... View full abstract»

    Meetings in which participants are linked by video, audio, and shared computer applications produce several parallel information streams. We created a meeting indexer, Jabber, that uses content-based indexing of the audio stream to access these parallel streams. It performs speech recognition on the audio stream, then groups the recognized words into semantically linked trees. The user interface i... View full abstract»

    Computer users have long desired a personal software agent that could execute verbal commands. Today's World Wide Web (WWW or Web), with its point and click hypertext interface, makes a tremendous amount of information readily available online. A speech interface would make the Web even more powerful, allowing us to access information by surfing the Web by voice. TI have developed Speech Aware Mul... View full abstract»

    The popular, business, and scientific media are full of predictions and promises for the national and global information infrastructures. However, one key problem is enabling interoperability in an open communications environment. In digital communications, simple examination does not reveal what a stream of bits represents-“bits are bits”. Headers and descriptors, a labeling mechanism... View full abstract»
