A study in gesture interactions

The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.

Collaborative problem solving has become a major feature within today’s workplaces. Increasingly, collaborative problem solving uses digital technology communication tools and networks to acquire and evaluate information, communicate with others and perform practical tasks together with other participants.

The skills needed include the ability to interact with the digital information itself through physical objects or ‘tangible user interfaces’ (TUIs) such as table tops, which play a central role as both physical representations and controls.

Funded through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship, researcher Dimitra Anastasiou aims to fill gaps in scientific and practical knowledge about adapting existing models used to assess collaborative problem solving skills.

Within the GETUI project she is developing new ways to assess the use of gestures, such as pointing or rotating an object, in TUI-based collaborative and complex problem-solving situations. As part of the research, Anastasiou will analyse the gestural performance of users as they interact on a TUI to perform a collaborative problem-solving task.

She then plans to develop new tools for assessing the key skills used in collaborative situations. The coupling of gestures with TUIs for collaborative problem solving assessment is a new direction in gesture studies, according to the project website.

Many fields use gesture in their applications, such as telecommunications, entertainment and healthcare, making the analysis and evaluation of gestures economically and socially relevant.
