Messaging and alerting Chris Schmandt MIT Media Lab
How much? interruption is essential in work and play just what we want and when we want it if too much, users will disable it tradeoff: benefit vs. annoyance
What can we do? filter messages adapt to user location aware augment sensory environment appropriate user interface
Filtering which messages arrive at async device? presentation order for synchronous reader - especially non-GUI rules: regular expressions by-example while reading how do rules age/expire? what does my computer know about me?
How do we use CLUES? Message order and grouping for voice access over phones –Mailcall –Phoneshell –“You have three important messages and two timely ones” Voice alerting in office (finger or active badges) Selecting for forwarding to pagers, etc.
InternetDesktop Computer Pager Knothole Stefan Marti Speech Interface Group E15-344 Intelligent Paging
Knothole messaging filters incoming email using CLUES proxy hides my outgoing address –recipient’s privacy –sender knows only one address replies originate to any internet address originate via address book –NOT a special local pager app
Knothole as PDA structured messages rolodex lookup calendar read/write local data (dictionary) web data (news, weather, traffic, stocks) Unix command line
Route 93 NB: No probs reported. Traf is moving near normal posted 55 & 65-mph speeds from Boston to Andover; a 21 min ride. Route 93 SB: No reports of probs from Route 495 to Route 128. Expect that to be a 12 min ride at 65-mph. Lower Deck traf is moving well to Route 1/Tobin Bridge merge. Traf 93

guarantee delivery of important messsges work in concert with other access –reading mail on the console –IMAP remote access –telephonic reading (Phoneshell) throttle delivery when less reachable across a variety of devices
Devices pagers –local, Skytel, Iridium,SMS to phones text-to-speech over phones –wireline, portable fax screen reading
Operation monitor device access –which pager –caller ID –finger, etc. track messages –device delivery status –reply status (via proxy service) model user activity / location
Why multiple devices? coverage cost of service support heterogeneous networks and multiple access modalities real goal: What is user’s attentive state? a process, not just a routing table
comMotion location aware computing messages and reminders learns user’s locations GPS auditory interface for driving
Issues reliability of GPS tracks learning algorithms route detection/deviation/projection privacy –client based –might reveal to family/friends?
Nomadic Radio wearable audio
Nomadic Radio more effective alerting –voice cues –content, subject lines adaptive –user responses to stimuli –presence of speech/conversation
