Keynote: Waving Arms and Yelling: The Future of Systems is Gesture and Character

A session at WebVisions Chicago 2012

Friday 28th September, 2012

4:15pm to 5:00pm (CST)

We've all seen Minority Report and routinely swipe, pinch, and tap our iOS and other devices. Siri and other voice-activated interfaces lurk in our pockets, our heads, and soon our cars and televisions. Is this where we're going? If so, what do we know about gesture and chracterized interfaces or, better yet, what can the past tell us about the future.

In his keynote presentation, Nathan Shedroff will show what science fiction has already taught us about gestures (since 1951!) and anthropomorphism in the interface.
