About this book


This book systematically addresses the quantification of quality aspects of multimodal interactive systems. The conceptual structure is based on a schematic view on human-computer interaction where the user interacts with the system and perceives it via input and output interfaces. Thus, aspects of multimodal interaction are analyzed first, followed by a discussion of the evaluation of output and input and concluding with a view on the evaluation of a complete system.

From the reviews:

“Kühnel presents a user’s guide to understanding contemporary research on multimodal systems, focusing specifically on unresolved questions regarding the systematic evaluation of multimodal interactive systems. … Kühnel provides an overview of the relevant terms, concepts, approaches, and related work in the field, highlighting quality and usability as key factors in the evaluation of multimodal interactive systems. … The book offers useful insights to those readers interested in learning about multimodal interactive systems and never-before-seen approaches to the evaluation of these systems.” (Franz Kurfess and Christina Taggart, Computing Reviews, April, 2013)
