To provide a general understanding for how gesture is used in human communication and to give some examples of how this can be employed in user interfaces. Give an overview of types of gestures and classification of gesture.


Being engaged in dialog is not dependent of lingustic properties only. Gesture and non-verbal interaction is very important to people involved in face-to-face communication. This lecture is purposed to give you a brief overview with a focus on gesture that is used together with spoken language. Knowledge of non-verbal communication can, amongst other things, be used to guide design in multimodal interfaces.
