Machines have become an indispensable part of a man’s life. Some say that humans are enslaved by modern technology and reject progress on principle, while fanatics of new trends simply must have not only the latest useful tools but every gadget as well. We see machines used in daily routines or in research, to make coffee, to save lives, to study the secrets of DNA on the micro scale, and for space travel on the macro scale.
The aim of this special issue is to bring together scientists interested in all aspects of theory and practice related to man-machine interactions, thus providing an international forum for exchanging ideas, setting questions for discussion, and sharing experience.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 3rd International Symposium on Big Data and Cloud Computing Challenges (ISBCC 2016), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Computational intelligence
- Pattern recognition
- Data processing, storage and transfer
- Assistive technologies
- Data mining and decision support
- AI and simulations in biosciences
- Socio-cultural effects
- Human-robot interaction
- Interaction devices and tools
- Autonomous agents
