Article
uage understanding and generation. The introduction to the collection, by Miller, Sullivan, and Tyler, suggests four requirements of intelligent interfaces: human-computer interactions need to be made clearer; interfaces need to support users' plans and goals; information needs to be presented clearly; and interfaces need to be designed and impleme...

We describe the research goals and issues in constructing autonomous personal representatives, and the desirability of using synthetic characters as the user interface for such artifacts. An application of these autonomous representatives is then described in which characters can be attached to a document to express a user's point of view or give g...

The Digestor system automatically converts web-based documents designed for desktop viewing into formats appropriate for handheld devices with small display screens, such as Palm-PCs, PDAs, and cellular phones. Digestor employs a heuristic planning algorithm and a set of structural page transformations to produce the `best' looking document for a g...
Article
Collaborative and cooperative aspects of information storage, seeking and retrieval have become a hot topic in recent years e.g. [1,2,4]. The acknowledgement that information seeking is a collaborative activity is part of a trend toward foregrounding the social in system design [5].The goal of this workshop was to discuss current conceptions of col...

This paper shows how the integration of natural language with direct manipulation produces a multimodal interface that overcomes limitations of these techniques when used separately. Natural language helps direct manipulation in being able to specify objects and actions by description, while direct manipulation enables users to learn which objects...

A series of 20 interviews in four organizations explores the ways in which employees take advantage of personal web pages to support their work and to reflect who they are. Both interviewee comments and web page examples suggest the importance of individual personalization of information managcmcnt and dissemination, prcscntation and pcrccption of...
Article
This paper describes CHORIS, the Computer-Human Object-oriented Reasoning Interface System, a generic architecture for intelligent interfaces developed by the Intelligent Interfaces research group of the Lockheed Artificial Intelligence Center. The CHORIS architecture integrates several expert system modules to support intelligent operation and int...
Article
Researchers from Lockheed and Stanford University are currently engaged in a joint project investigating the acquisition of design knowledge to aid in the modification and reuse of designs. In our approach acquisition, verification, and explanation are integral components of the design capture process. We are using the HELIOS digital design system...
Article
This paper describes the architecture and prototype of a system which dynamically determines how to present information to a user. The system utilizes a rule based approach to select one or more modalities for presenting information. Next the system determines one or more techniques to present the information within each of the previously selected...
Article
The study was designed to investigate 2-month-old infant preferential attention to a feature found to be characteristic of mothers' speech to their infants. A modified infant-control auditory preference paradigm was employed to assess infants' differential attention to synthetically generated and naturally produced rising and falling intonation con...
Article
Reviews the literature to integrate research pertaining to what is known about the infant's intermodal (IM) perceptual abilities and research describing the multimodal (MM) qualities of the infant's social environment. Research shows that beginning shortly after birth and throughout the 1st yr of life, infants demonstrate a variety of IM perceptual...
Article
The stability and structure of the NBAS-K was tested on a sample of 221 normal infants over the first three days of life; 106 of these subjects were also evaluated at two weeks and one month of age. The results revealed low to moderate stability depending upon the nature of the criterion used to estimate stability. Assessments on Day 3 and at 2 Wee...
Article
In this report the results of analyses involving the NBAS-K Scale “Reinforcement Value of the Infant's Behavior” are presented. Examiner ratings of infants on this scale did not show great consistency across the first month of life using a Pearson correlation; an interval of same or ±1 score agreements showed moderate consistency; Day 2 and 2-Week...
