|W3C Webinar: Developing Portable Mobile Applications with Compelling User Experience using the W3C MMI Architecture|
HTML5 has paved the way for development of rich web applications and has been widely adopted by mobile application developers. Ease of user-interaction (user-experience) with applications has become prime focus world-wide, thanks to the proliferation of mobile phones and tablet devices.
User-interaction through speech, touch, gesture and swipe has become the key differentiator in the success of popular mobile applications today. The recent success of technologies such as Apple's SIRI and Google's Voice Assistant in mobile phones has increased the awareness of such hybrid input and output methods among developer and user communities.
However, the developer community often finds it daunting to incorporate these innovative i/o methods as part of their applications, given the diversity of mobile devices and programming techniques. Adopting short-cut methods for incorporating such i/o mechanisms in development often results in diverse short-term strategies that may not work for any reasonably sophisticated/complex applications across device/OS platforms.
One of the key advantages of the W3C Multimodal Architecture (MMI) is its suitability for simple to sophisticated applications across mobile/user-devices in creating compelling user experiences, leveraging advances in input/output methodologies, and supporting inter-operability among multiple vendors' products and solutions.
Several invited experts from the industry and analyst communities will be sharing their experiences and views on the explosive growth of opportunities for the development of applications that provide enhanced multimodal user-experiences.
At the end of this webinar participants will gain a good perspective on :
- Overview of the MMI Architecture and HTML5, and their relationship
- Implementing modality components
- Discovery of resources
- Dealing with modalities that are both input and output (e.g., haptic sensors/actuators)
- Presentation issues such as how to determine what output modality or modalities to use to present information to users
- Interchangeable modalities (e.g., typing, handwriting, speaking, etc.)
This webinar will be of interest to developer communities, platform providers and specific industries such as health care, financial services, Broadcasting, automotive, gaming and consumer devices.
