Architectures and Models for Interaction (AMI)

The use of interactive systems has undergone remarkable changes in recent years, due to the emergence of new hardware and software platforms, the adoption of digital tools by increasingly broad categories of the population (in particular people with disabilities) and the emergence of new environments and contexts of use. Interaction situations that were once static and fixed have become open and dynamic. Today, users need to interact with their digital systems everywhere, at any time, and using all the devices available to them. They typically have limited knowledge of the inner workings of their systems, yet demand that their systems be able to learn and anticipate their evolving needs. This is why the AMI group focuses on post-WIMP interaction paradigms and on the exploitation of unconventional Human-System interaction modalities.

The AMIArchitectures et modèles pour l’Interaction group is composed of researchers and teacher-researchers specialized in different modes of interaction such as vision, tactile interaction, movement as well as in multimodal interfaces that combine different modalities to achieve a more “natural” interaction. Because of this wide range of skills, the AMIArchitectures et modèles pour l’Interaction group cooperates extensively, both internally with other teams in the laboratory and externally with industrial and academic partners.
