Application Programming Interface (API) for designing Multimodal Interfaces


This project is already assigned.



Developers configure so called fusion methods to design and develop multimodal interfaces. However, fusion method APIs are commonly not optimized in terms of usability (for developers). This, in turn, hinders rapid development cycles that are common for the development of user interfaces. The following code excerpt demonstrates the API for configuring the cATN fusion method.


The aim of this project is to identify factors for increasing the API usability of fusion methods for natural multimodal interfaces. Therefore, one or more of the following methodologies should be conducted:
