Consumer electronics (CE) devices, providing multimedia entertainment and enabling communication, have become ubiquitous in daily life. An important challenge for the modern CE industry is the design of user interfaces for CE products that enable natural interactions that are convenient, intuitive and fun. As many CE products are supplied with microphones and cameras, the exploitation of both audio and visual information for interactive multimedia is a growing field of research.
Collecting together contributions from an international selection of experts, including leading researchers in industry, this unique text presents the latest advances in applications of multimedia interaction and user interfaces for consumer electronics. Covering issues of both multimedia content analysis and human-machine interaction, the book examines a wide range of techniques from computer vision, machine learning, audio and speech processing, communications, artificial intelligence and media technology.
