Abstract:In the quest for more natural forms of interaction between humans and machines, information on where someone is looking and how (for how long, with long or shorter gaze periods) plays a prominent part. The importance of gaze in social interaction, its manifold functions and expressive force, and the multiple factors that contribute to it, make it an interesting modality to explore in interaction. This can take many forms. Gaze can be used as a pointing device, similar to a mouse, but it can also be used in more subtle ways. The attention, interest, and other aspects of the mental state of the user may be inferred from gaze behaviors in context, and the system can react to it and adjust its behavior accordingly. This chapter reviews the use of gaze information at the interface in a number of scenarios ranging from the desktop to the ambient environment, including conversational interactions with robots and agents.
