Cognitive Interaction Technology: Goals and Perspectives of Excellence Cluster CITEC
H. Ritter. KI -- Künstliche Intelligenz24 (4):
The coming decade will bring raw processing power and storage capacities of everyday computers to the same level as small brains. Considering this, current interaction technology seems archaic as it still forces humans to follow highly stereotyped, narrow and often error-prone procedures in order to make computers, robots, or other machinery obey them. The vision behind the Excellence Cluster Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) is to develop ways of interacting with technical systems that are as natural and smooth as communication between humans.
