The goal of this Workshop is giving a brief overview to new biologically inspired
info-communication channels for human-machine interaction applied for operator
adaptable machinery personalization, as a high level operator sensitive interface to
robots. The machinery has the task to adapt the expected human requirements by
identification of the actual human behavior, by machinery “personalization”. The
Workshop also gives a comprehensive overview to the differences between
psychologically and ethologically inspired paradigms for the interaction between
humans and intelligent systems. The Workshop expects papers on new cognitive,
non-verbal info-communication channels as well. It can be the basis for humanmachine
interaction, new paradigm of robot teaching and supervising, which might
open a new dimension of robotization or a new dimension of intelligent guiding. The
Intelligent Space is a room or corridor, which has ubiquitous sensory intelligence
including various sensors, such as cameras, microphones, haptic devices (for physical
contact) and actuators with ubiquitous computing background. The Intelligent Space
(iSpace) can sense the whole space and evaluate the situations in the space. The
robots or mobile agents working in the space utilize the evaluated information by
iSpace. The intelligent space serves as a distributed communication channel between
human and machine.
