1D Handwriting is a unistroke gesture technique enabling text entry on a one-dimensional interface that significantly outperforms a selection-based technique for both letter input and word input and has several potential applications for other one- dimensional constrained interfaces.
ForceBoard: Subtle Text Entry Leveraging Pressure
The error model of pressure control for successive and error-tolerant input was incorporated into a Bayesian algorithm to infer user input and demonstrated the feasibility of applying pressure as the main channel for text entry.

Two methods of deriving a descriptive final cost function to assist model predictive control (MPC) in selecting a good policy without having to plan as far into the future or having to fine-tune delicate cost functions are explored.
Moving least-squares approximations for linearly-solvable stochastic optimal control problems
A new method for finding the principal eigenfunction of a linear operator using a moving least-squares function approximation is described, using efficient iterative solvers that do not require matrix factorization, thereby allowing us to handle large numbers of basis functions.
Aggregation Methods for Lineary-Solvable Markov Decision Process
An approximation framework for solving stochastic optimal control problems by using soft state aggregation over a continuous space is presented, enabling us to avoid matrix factorization and take advantage of sparsity by using efficient iterative solvers.

A new framework for finding a solution to Linearly-solvable Markov Decision Process problems on continuous state space by using a moving least-squares approximation, which uses efficient iterative solvers which do not require matrix factorization, so it could handle large numbers of bases.
Spacewalker: Rapid UI Design Exploration Using Lightweight Markup Enhancement and Crowd Genetic Programming
Spatewalker allows designers to effectively search a large design space of a UI, using the language they are familiar with, and improve their design rapidly at a minimal cost.

New Metrics for Understanding Touch by People with and without Limited Fine Motor Function
13 target-agnostic touch performance metrics to characterize what happens during a touch are proposed, which regard a touch as a time series of ovals that occur from finger-down to finger-up.
