Multimodal Maps: An Agent-based Approach


The SRI Multimedia Interfaces Group is currently building a series of prototype map-based applications that accept handwritten, verbal and gestural requests issued in a synergistic fashion. These applications are distinguished by comparatively rich natural language capabilities, access to existing data sources including the World Wide Web, and a mobile handheld interface. To implement the described application, a hierarchical distributed network of heterogeneous software agents was augmented by appropriate functionality for developing synergistic multimodal applications.
