How computers can use radar to understand nonverbal cues

While the “social intelligence” to pause until you return is a first step, we believe that understanding nonverbal cues has the potential to become a new standard for “ambient computing” — a vision of computing where computers weave gracefully into our everyday lives. In the same way we use inputs such as a mouse and keyboard, we believe that a new set of interaction patterns and standards will emerge as we move computing into the physical world that takes into account implicit behaviors. It will change everything at home and at work, and could create more natural interactions in a way that predates those of us who’ve grown up with technology. As Xerox Parc outlined in a prolific idea, rather than sitting in front of your desktop computer giving it your full attention, computers can work alongside you in the physical world, invisible but always helpful.
