Hideyuki Nakashima, Takuichi Nishimura, and Koiti Hasida
The current information processing tools such as personal computers and Internet are not always easy to use. Novice users often have to take a class to master them. The research theme of the Cyber Assist Research Center is the development of human-centered information processing technologies, which can provide situated information that I-want-here-now through "natural interface" (Nakashima and Hasida 2001). In other words, we are strengthening a variety of technologies that link digital realm represented by Internet to us people who live in the real world. The aim of the talk is to introduce our research plans together with our view of the future information-processing environment.
