Although there has been much progress in developing theories, models
and systems in the areas of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and
Vision Processing (VP) there has heretofore been little progress on
integrating these two subareas of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This
book contains a set of edited papers addressing computational
intelligent multimedia for the integration of NLP and VP. The papers
include site descriptions from Apple Computer, California, USA and the
DFKI, Saarbr"ucken, Germany, and present historical overviews and
philosophical issues, on systems which have been built and which
enable communications through text, speech, sound, touch, video,
graphics and icons, and on the automatic presentation of information
whether it be instruction manuals, statistical data or visualization
of language. Mark Maybury's original book, Intelligent Multimedia
Interfaces, is also reviewed here. The USA and the EU are
well-reflected showing up the fact that integration is a truly
international issue. There is no doubt that all of this will be
necessary for the SuperInformationHighways of the future.
