Situation aware interaction with multi-modal business applications in smart environments
A consistent user experience in combination with proactive assistance may improve the user performance while interacting with heterogeneous data sources as e.g., occurring in business decision making. We describe our approach which is based on inferring the user intentions from sensory inputs, providing a situation aware information assistance, and controlling the environment proactively by anticipating future goals. Our system has been realized within a smart meeting room and has in parts been evaluated. In this paper, we describe the core ideas underlying our approach and report on first findings from the evaluation.
