07: Man and Machine – Interactions in the Ambient Intelligent Society

-
Alpbacher Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Man is on the way to enrich his environment with  embedded intelligence , thus creating the Ambient Intelligence Society of the future. Nevertheless, ambient intelligence is only helpful in practical life if we can make use of it in a simple and comfortable way.
Do current technical developments in man-machine interfaces really support our needs or do we have to adapt our requirements to the laws of the machines? An interactive process has started. Which aims do we set in this evolution?
