The science behind the intelligence
Researchers have discovered that electronic communication media in general will pose obstacles to complex communication between collaborators, when compared with the face-to-face medium, which will lead to an increase in cognitive effort and communication ambiguity. The human computer interface through the desktop metaphor has remained unchanged over years. Researches have unveiled the need to have a ‘workspace’ mirroring the cognitive environment of a real face to face meeting in a remote environment. nuVa is the medium that encapsulates the complex human and social cognitive elements to provide a remote collaboration on tasks as close as it can get to a natural face to face meeting.
Different communication devices present different levels of media naturalness. The human brain is naturally designed to have face to face communication. All electronic communication medium takes away multiple elements of naturalness. One of the experts in the field, Ned Kock states that a decrease in the media naturalness will lead to increased cognitive effort, increased communication ambiguity and decreased psychological arousal.
Through intense research and developments, nuVa is built to bring in an experience with close proximity to the real face to face meeting, facilitating minimal suppression of the elements of naturalness. The ‘nuVa’ horizontal workspace is at the heart of this natural human computer interaction.
