Abstract : The MIT Media Laboratory pursued three coordinated streams of research: the development of graphically intelligent tools and principles to support the interactive creation of symbolic information landscapes; the integration of such landscapes with pictorially convincing virtual environments; and the enabling of multi-modal natural language communication with the virtual environment display and its contents via combinations of speech, manual gesture, and gaze. It was intended that these streams converge in the final year of the overall project in the form of an ultra-high definition, seamlessly tiled wall-sized display (datawall).
