Summary: SmartKom-Home demonstrates the use and benefit of an intelligent multimodal interface when controlling entertainment devices like a TV, a recorder, and a jukebox, and when accessing entertainment services like an electronic program guide combining speech and a handheld display with touch input. One important point is emphasizing the functional aspect, i.e., the user's needs, conveyed to the system in a natural way by speech and gesture, are satisfied. The user does not need to know device-specific features or service idiosyncrasies. The function modeling component in SmartKom-Home has the necessary knowledge to transform the abstract user request into device commands and service queries.
