Episode 43: Keyboard Input

In this episode, Tor and I talk with Shumin Zhai of Google Research. Shumin has worked for years in the area of language processing, specifically around user input on keyboards. Some of his work ended up in the Gesture Typing feature of the Google keyboard, which is all about translating user input into specific word suggestions. We talked about this work, language processing, research, and about the field of interpreting user interface input in general.
