About the Book

In the work on humanizing computer interaction, gesture and sign language have become a recent focus in advanced interface design. Artificial intelligence, neural networks, pattern recognition, and agent techniques are all having a significant impact on this area of research. Resulting from a three-day international workshop, held at Bielefeld University's Center for Interdisciplinary Research in September 1997, this book presents state-of-the-art contributions comprising gesture and sign- language recognition and synthesis, gesture semiotics, gesture and speech integration, and applications. The book can serve as a timely and comprehensive reference for researchers in any of the related disciplines, as well as for practitioners concerned with putting gesture and sign language to work in computer interfaces. It could further be of use as a supplementary text for courses on multimodal human-computer interaction.
