AbstractNowadays, multi-modal is a ubiquitous and popular keyword. Whether the multi-modal input-output techniques really improve something (e.g., performance, cognitive load) and lead to the progress in human-computer interaction (new dynamic strategies, productivity and safety of interaction, flexibility and adaptability)? Does the user benefit of multi-modal input? Maybe naturalness and intuitiveness is in ?amodal? interface? By other words, the term
BioGrigori Evreinov received his Ph.D. degree in Technical Sciences (Computer Science) from Rostov State University (RSU), Russia, in 1998. He has been doing research on human-computer interaction since 1982. He specializes in sensor technology and transducer construction for alternative input-output techniques. Until 2001, he worked as a Senior Research Scientist at the Computer Center in RSU and as the head of the Laboratory for Designing of Information Imaging Systems. Since 2001, he has worked as a researcher and assistant professor at the Department of Computer Sciences in University of Tampere. His current research projects are in the field of advanced assistive user interfaces based on non-speech audio, tactile signals and adaptive algorithms for cross-modal transformation textual and graphical information.
