    Looks at one aspect of the trend toward more natural forms of interaction: the use of sketch-based interfaces for the design of intelligent systems. The authors contend that current computer interfaces are too formal and precise for creative tasks such as design. When working out ideas and brainstorming, people often sketch their thoughts informally on paper and whiteboards. Sketches, by their ver... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (520 KB)

    An ongoing revolution is taking place in mobile robotics. Robots that guide blind or mentally handicapped people, clean large office buildings and department stores, or assist people in recreational activities are clearly within reach. For many of those target domains, prototypes are readily available. The author discusses a case study of a mobile tour guide robot in a branch of the Deutsches Muse... View full abstract»

    First AID (Automated Instrument Diagnostics) is a fault-diagnosis expert system that is based on an information client architecture. This expert system uses generic tools such as Web browsers to aid service engineers in remotely diagnosing the faults in LEO scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). The system lets engineers acquire information directly from the SEM, diagnose inaccurate behavior and re... View full abstract»

    Advertising on the World Wide Web has arrived. The ads we see now mark the beginning of a rapidly growing business. $906.5 million was spent on Internet advertising in the USA in 1997, and that will rise to $7.7 billion by 2002. The Web's unique properties present excellent advertising opportunities, not only for the advertisers and publishers, but also for those of us browsing the Web. These oppo... View full abstract»

    In the past, more and broader roads have been built to manage the growing traffic. However, these approaches will be insufficient for future traffic management, because of environmental concerns and a lack of space, especially in urban areas. The significant and rapidly increasing improvements in communication and information technology as well as the decreasing prices, are motivating a new look a... View full abstract»

    Lively minds are by definition curious. Among the higher animal species, curiosity and intelligence are quite often closely linked. Cats and birds are prime examples of curious and highly intelligent life forms. Real curiosity is all about persistently meddling with the world. Curious animals, faced with a static environment, will go and perturb it, even at great risk to their safety. Cats frequen... View full abstract»
