Title

UCLIC Research Seminar 16th October: Fabrice Matulic, Preferred Networks Inc., Japan - Leveraging pen and touch input on interactive surfaces

Abstract

Please note the changed day and time of the seminar

Tablets and large displays that support simultaneous and differentiated pen and touch input provide interactive capabilities that go well beyond the sum of those modalities' individual input spaces. In this talk, I will present some of the research work that has been done in that area and which demonstrates how the potential of bimanual pen and touch input can be leveraged through hybrid interactions. In particular, I will show how this interaction paradigm can be applied to document engineering processes such as document authoring and editing to make them more intuitive and efficient. At the end of the talk, I will briefly introduce Preferred Networks and its R&D activities in the area of deep learning.

Biography

Dr. Fabrice Matulic is a senior researcher at Preferred Networks Inc., Japan, in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI). Prior to that, he worked at the HCI Lab of the University of Waterloo in Canada, the Interactive Media Lab of the Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden in Germany, Microsoft Research in Redmond, USA, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where he obtained his PhD, and Ricoh Ltd., Japan. Fabrice's general research interests lie in the areas of document engineering and HCI, in particular surface and pen computing. Recently, he has also explored the space of embodied and distant interaction with large and ubiquitous displays. Fabrice has over 40 peer-reviewed publications and patents. His work was also featured twice on national Swiss TV. More information is available on his homepage
