The increasing abundance of data creates new opportunities for communities of interest and communities of practice. We believe that interactive tabletops will allow humans to explore data in familiar spaces such as living rooms, cafés, and public places. As part of our vision, we suggest switching from fixed tabletops to multi-device solutions. We show how multi-device solutions in the future could encourage collaboration and engage users in socially relevant data-oriented analysis . Also related to the the topic of multi-device interaction, this talk will show examples of cross-device application sharing and distributed brainstorming groupware. Addressing more recent developments, going beyond tangibles and tabletops, we will also talk about potentials for in-motion interaction.
Morten Fjeld's research activities are situated in the field of Human-Computer Interaction with a focus on tangible and tabletop user computing. He founded the t2i Interaction Lab at Chalmers, Sweden (2004), and later, in Bergen, Norway (2016). He holds a dual MSc degree in applied mathematics from NTNU (Trondheim, Norway) and ENSIMAG (Grenoble, France), and a PhD from ETH (Zurich, Switzerland). In 2002, Morten Fjeld received the ETH Medal for his PhD titled "Designing for Tangible Interaction". In 2011, he was a visiting professor at NUS Singapore, in 2016 and 2017 at Tohoku University, Japan. Morten jointly serves as professor with Chalmers U. of Technology in Sweden and U. of Bergen in Norway. Morten Fjeld also has extensive industrial experience in the areas of fluid mechanics, simulators, and user interface design. Morten is also serving the steering committee of ACM VRST.
