Track III: Special Skills
Screens have been the most popular human-machine interface (HMI) for some time; meanwhile they are under attack from voice control. But the next generation of HMI is on the starting blocks: Nano-scale machinery inside our bodies will be able to monitor and modify human beings, while Saudi Arabia’s robot Sophia is already now the world’s first machine with civil rights and duties. HMI already influences human beings everyday-life, one can assume that this influence will increase strongly in the future. “Understanding” is the core competence of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities (SSHA). Therefore, knowledge from SSHA will play a crucial role for next generation HMI.
