Designing the Human-Machine Symbiosis (Dagstuhl Seminar 23212)

Authors: Ellen Yi-Luen Do, Pattie Maes, Florian `Floyd' Mueller, and Nathan Semertzidis

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 13, Issue 5 (2023)


Abstract
Our understanding of computers simply executing tasks is changing towards one where the human and machine enter a symbiosis: computers are increasingly extending human capacity by integrating with bodily senses, thanks to sensor and actuator advances as well as enhanced software developments. Wearables, augmented reality, exoskeletons and implantable devices are all emerging trends that mark the beginning of such a human-machine symbiosis. What is still missing, though, is a thorough understanding of how to design such symbiotic user experiences in a systematic way, as, despite the increase of associated systems entering the market, there is a lack of understanding of how such a human-machine symbiosis emerges and what theoretical frameworks underlie it. Open questions around this topic are concerned with whether such systems can enhance human empowerment, what role a sense of control plays in the associated user experiences, and how to responsibly design devices that all people can benefit from. To begin answering such questions, this Dagstuhl Seminar invites experts from both industry and academia in order to bring together leaders from so far independent streams of investigation to work on a coherent approach to human-machine symbiosis that engages a holistic perspective while considering also societal and ethical issues.

Cognitive Augmentation (Dagstuhl Seminar 22491)

Authors: Kai Kunze, Pattie Maes, Florian `Floyd' Mueller, and Katrin Wolf

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 12, Issue 12 (2023)


Abstract
Mobile phones and other connected wearable systems transformed the way we interact with information, offering access to vast amounts of knowledge at our fingertips. However, the challenge remains on how to make this information more accessible and intuitive. The field of cognitive augmentation aims to enhance our cognitive abilities through technology, allowing us to interact with digital data more naturally and efficiently. This Dagstuhl Seminar brought together experts in neuroscience, psychology, physiology, wearable computing, human-computer interaction, machine perception, and pattern recognition to discuss the possibility of augmenting our cognitive skills and creating new digital senses. The seminar explored the latest findings in these fields and their potential for improving human performance, productivity, and creativity. Ultimately, the goal is to bridge the gap between humans and machines, enabling a more seamless and intuitive interaction between the two. The main discussion topic centered around the possibilities and challenges of digitally augmenting our cognition.

Human-Computer Integration (Dagstuhl Seminar 18322)

Authors: Florian Mueller, Pattie Maes, and Jonathan Grudin

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 8, Issue 8 (2019)


Abstract
The rise of technology that supports a partnership between user and computer highlights an opportunity for a new era of "human-computer integration", contrasting the previously dominant paradigm of computers functioning as tools. However, most work around these technologies only focused on the instrumental perspective to achieve extrinsic performance objectives. However, phenomenology emphasizes that it is also important to support the experiential perspective, which indicates that technology should also help people pay attention to their lived experiences and personal growth in order to deepen their understanding of their own bodies. This seminar focuses on embodied integration, where a computer tightly integrates with the person's body. Although an increasing number of systems are emerging, a thorough understanding of how to design such systems is notably absent. The reason for this is the limited knowledge about how such embodied partnerships unfold, and what underlying theory could guide such developments. This seminar brought together leading experts from industry and academia, including those who are central to the development of products and ideas such as wearables, on-body robotics, and exertion systems. The goal was to address key questions around the design of embodied integration and to jump-start collaborations to pioneer new approaches for a human-computer integrated future.
