Information from the face and hands is useful in communication. Seeing the face helps disambiguate the words heard. In addition, sign-language is a well used form of communication via the hands.
In this event we explore the use of face and hands in communication. We do this by using interactive displays and hands-on activities. For example, the McGurk illusion shows how we combine information from a heard and seen. We will also teach some basic ‘signs’ and will also collect some ‘live’ data in a 5 minute experiment.
