Enactive interfaces

Project description

Multimodal interfaces

Enaction is a form of interaction realized in the form of sensory-motor responses and acquired by the act of "doing". It is a form of cognition inherently tied to actions, capable of directly conveying a non-symbolic form of knowledge.The objective of the ENACTIVE Network of Excellence is to join excellent researchers to define and develop reliable solutions for enactive interaction and overcome the two main bottlenecks of present Interface Technologies:

1. The need of increasing of artificial systems reactivity to reach the same level of human action-perception abilities in complex tasks.

2. The link of physical sensory-motor events (enactive experiences) with the symbolic information and knowledge technologies.

The Enactive interaction paradigm proposes a closed genuine link between actions and perceptions and may help overcoming barriers such as language differences as well as produce new means of study, creation and knowledge transmission among many others.Core research activities, coordinated at European level, include RandD on enactive devices and interfaces, computer models and metaphors, human and behavioral studies, multisensory data rendering, new trends in computer architecture, interfaces technologies and standards.The ultimate Network vision is to design a new kind of computerized machines, called Sensible Machines, adapted to our sensory-motor intelligence. Beside Thinking Machines, considered as machines based on language technologies that can perform reasoning, and beside Communicating Machines, intended as machines based on wireless communications and network technologies that allow humans to communicate between themselves, the Sensible Machine plays the role of a third complementary means. It will be a generic interface between the human senses and the external universe, that completes our computerized environments with the aim of rendering them more efficient and human oriented.
