Welcome to the INIT Lab!

The INIT Lab (the Intelligent Natural Interaction Technology Laboratory) is directed by Dr. Lisa Anthony, and is part of the CISE Department at the University of Florida. The INIT Lab focuses on advanced interaction technologies such as touch, speech, and gesture, especially for children in the context of educational interfaces. INIT Lab projects advance human-computer interaction (HCI) research questions of how users want to interact with these natural modalities, and computer science research questions of how to build recognition algorithms that can understand user input in these ambiguous modalities.
