IM 2

The National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) on Interactive Multimodal Information Management, in brief (IM)2, is aimed at the advancement of research, and the development of prototypes, in the field of man-machine interaction. The NCCR is particularly concerned with technologies coordinating natural input modes (such as speech, image, pen, touch, hand gestures, head and/or body movements, and even physiological sensors) with multimedia system outputs, such as speech, sounds, images, 3D graphics and animation.

In the first phase (2004-2006) the Computer Vision Laboratory at ETH Zurich was involved in the Workpackage on Scene Analysis of this project. We have been working on several issues:

In the current phase (starting 2006) IM2 addresses the following themes:
