Multimodal Interface for Human-Machine Communication

With the advance of speech, image and video technology, human–computer interaction (HCI) will reach a new phase. In recent years, HCI has been extended to human–machine communication (HMC) and the perceptual user interface (PUI). The final goal in HMC is that the communication between humans and machines is similar to human-to-human communication. Moreover, the machine can support human-to-human communication (e.g. an interface for the disabled). For this reason, various aspects of human communication are to be considered in HMC. The HMC interface, called a multimodal interface, includes different types of input methods, such as natural language, gestures, face and handwriting characters. The nine papers in this book have been selected from the 92 high-quality papers constituting the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Multimodal Interface (ICMI '99), which was held in Hong Kong in 1999. The papers cover a wide spectrum of the multimodal interface.

Membuat Anak Gila Membaca

Bacalah dengan (menyebut) nama Tuhanmu Yang Menciptakan. Bacalah, dan Tuhanmulah Yang Maha Pemurah. (QS Al-'Alaq [96]: 1, 3) Allah menurunkan firman pertama-Nya dengan perintah "Iqra". Mengapa? Dengan membaca, manusia mengenali diri, alam semesta dan Tuhan. Dan, dengan membaca, manusia layak menjadi khalifah Allah di muka bumi. Karena itu, semua orangtua sudah semestinya memperkenalkan membaca kepada anak sejak dini: usia 0-2 tahun. Pada masa inilah, perkembangan otak anak amat pesat (80% kapasitas otak manusia dibentuk pada periode dua tahun pertama) dan amat reseptif (gampang menyerap apa saja dengan memori yang kuat). Mohammad Fauzil Adhim - sarjana psikologi, penulis produktif buku-buku bertema pendidikan anak dan keluarga - ingin berbagi pengalaman dan pengetahuannya yang luas tentang: * Bagaimana menjadikan membaca sebagai kegiatan yang menyenangkan * Bagaimana memberikan pengalaman pramembaca yang mengasyikkan * Bagaimana menciptakan kondisi-kondisi yang kondusif untuk membaca * Bagaimana membentuk kebiasaan membaca dengan cara yang disenangi anak. Siapa pun orangtua yang menghendaki anak-anaknya menjadi generasi ulil albab - berpikiran cemerlang, berakhlak mulia, dan berperasaan penuh kasih-sudah seharusnya membaca buku yang enak dibaca dan amat penting ini. [Mizan, Mizania, Pendidikan, Referensi, Indonesia]

Selama sehari kita banyak mempergunakan kata "inspirasi" tersebut dalam
berbincang-bincang maupun bercanda dengan anak. Kita bisa membuat
permainan kecil yang menyenangkan di mana anak dan orangtua akan
menggunakan kosakata hari itu dalam bentuk kalimat. Sebaiknya, orangtua
membatasi pengenalan kosakata yang sangat unik. Jangan terlalu sering, tetapi
jangan pula membuat anak terasing dari kosakata seperti itu. Tadabur Alam

Kritikan Sastera dalam Teori, Aplikasi dan Tradisi

Kritikan Sastera dalam Teori, Aplikasi & Tradisi, membicarakan bahawa kesusasteraaan dengan pembinaan unsur-unsurnya yang sesuai dan indah tadi menjadi tidak bererti sama sekali kiranya ia disimpan tanpa tersebar kepada khalayak atau pembaca. Hakikat penciptaan sastera adalah untuk dibaca dan dihayati, untuk dirasakan segala keseronokan dan pengalaman baik serta buruk yang tergarap di dalamnya. Selepas penghayatan sedemikian rupa, penciptaan atau karya sastera tidak ditinggalkan begitu sahaja, melainkan dibicarakan pula untuk memperlihatkan reaksi atau tindak balas penilaian pembaca terhadapnya. Ini selalunya berlaku dalam kegiatan yang diistilahkan sebagai kritikan sastera. Melalui kegiatan ini karya sastera yang konkrit diambil untuk dibuat pertimbangan, penilaian dan penganalisisan secara teliti dan mendalam untuk mengetahui kekuatan serta kelemahannya, mengetahui taraf kedudukan dan pencapaian mutu seninya.

Apabila teori-teori baru yang menjadi alat dalam penilaian serta penelitian
sastera, dan kini berkembang pesat serta mendapat perhatian luas, melupakan
manusia dan kemanusiaan, maka ciptaan sastera yang memang dicipta oleh
manusia dan ... Tambahan pula, agama Islam sendiri memang lebih merestui
pengkaedahan dan pendekatan yang demikian, yang bersesuaian dengan
tanggapannya terhadap sastera itu sendiri, iaitu sastera adalah ciptaan seni
yang berfungsi untuk ...

of Zuwara, an act that angered the dominant clan of B. Sha*ban. The

Exploring the Psychology of Interest

Psychologists have always been interested in interest, and so modern research on interest can be found in nearly every area of the field: Researchers studying emotions, cognition, development, education, aesthetics, personality, motivation, and vocations have developed intriguing ideas about what interest is and how it works. Exploring the Psychology of Interest presents an integrated picture of how interest has been studied in all the wide-ranging areas of psychology. Using modern theories of cognition and emotion as an integrative framework, Paul Silvia examines the nature of interest, what makes things interesting, the role of interest in personality, and the development of peoples idiosyncratic interests, hobbies, and avocations. His examination reveals deep similarities between seemingly different fields of psychology and illustrates the profound importance of interest, curiosity, and intrinsic motivation for understanding why people do what they do. The most comprehensive work of its kind, Exploring the Psychology of Interest will be a valuable resource for student and professional researchers in cognitive, social, and developmental psychology.

Gordon Allport (1937, 1961) proposed a theory of functional autonomy in an “
attempt to escape the limitations of uniform, rigid, abstract, backward-looking
theories, and to recognize the spontaneous, changing, forward-looking, concrete
character that much adult motivation surely has” (1961, pp. 226–227). Functional
autonomy refers to a transformation process whereby a motive splits off from an
extrinsic motivational source and becomes self-sustaining. A young boy, for
example, may ...
