1 Human Machine Interfaces By Elizabeth Chmiel, Senai Iman, and Ece Yaman

2 Human Machine Interfaces the way machines communicate with human beings will greatly change our understanding of objects of spaces the way machines communicate with human beings will greatly change our understanding of objects of spaces the advent of this natural dialogue with machines is rooted in theorists like Castells and McLuhan the advent of this natural dialogue with machines is rooted in theorists like Castells and McLuhan

3 Marshall McLuhan Foresaw the consequences of rapid technological development Foresaw the consequences of rapid technological development predicted that technology would eradicate societies obsession with files and folders predicted that technology would eradicate societies obsession with files and folders Our ability to access information quicker is redefining the traditional landscape of our societies Our ability to access information quicker is redefining the traditional landscape of our societies between the organic and machine, technology will shake our understanding of ethics, morality, humanism, and science between the organic and machine, technology will shake our understanding of ethics, morality, humanism, and science

4 Technologies are pulling us apart… we are becoming more dependent on machines, and less in touch with nature and ourselves we are becoming more dependent on machines, and less in touch with nature and ourselves technologies have become such a huge part of our daily lives that it is difficult for us to disconnect ourselves from them technologies have become such a huge part of our daily lives that it is difficult for us to disconnect ourselves from them

6 Manuel Castells Castells stressed that institutions and societies were created through collective action and different forms of social dynamics Castells stressed that institutions and societies were created through collective action and different forms of social dynamics the advent of technologies like the internet was propagated by the state, social movements, and business interests the advent of technologies like the internet was propagated by the state, social movements, and business interests conflicting agendas of all parties has led to technology being manifested in several directions and each has morphed the way the ‘sovereign individual’ interacts with objects and spaces conflicting agendas of all parties has led to technology being manifested in several directions and each has morphed the way the ‘sovereign individual’ interacts with objects and spaces technology is empowering the individual technology is empowering the individual

7 Common thread amongst each of these conflicting agendas is an increasing move towards the “real” Common thread amongst each of these conflicting agendas is an increasing move towards the “real” Our five senses are connecting becoming closer and closer to technology, machines are moving towards realism replacing our senses Our five senses are connecting becoming closer and closer to technology, machines are moving towards realism replacing our senses New technologies have eliminated barriers of space and time New technologies have eliminated barriers of space and time

8 The Internet and Our Minds internet has replaced books, encyclopedias, whole libraries internet has replaced books, encyclopedias, whole libraries because of all the information that is accessible via the web, we do not read as many books as we used to because of all the information that is accessible via the web, we do not read as many books as we used to

9 The Camera and Our Memory Digital camera has replaced our memory Digital camera has replaced our memory it saves our visual memories for us so that we no longer need to remember things, our visual memories do not work as hard it saves our visual memories for us so that we no longer need to remember things, our visual memories do not work as hard

10 TV and Our Imagination TV shows and movies have replaced our imagination TV shows and movies have replaced our imagination people used to read books and picture the events occurring in our heads people used to read books and picture the events occurring in our heads Now this is done for us Now this is done for us

11 Video Games and Our Creativity video games have replaced our creativity video games have replaced our creativity children used to play with dolls and cars, and make up their own fairytale lands, but now their minds are conforming to what is presented by video games children used to play with dolls and cars, and make up their own fairytale lands, but now their minds are conforming to what is presented by video games

12 Media-Obsessed all these technologies facilitate the speed of our lives, but they impose on our attention all these technologies facilitate the speed of our lives, but they impose on our attention we have become a media- crazed culture we have become a media- crazed culture We are becoming increasingly more impatient with the need to be entertained We are becoming increasingly more impatient with the need to be entertained Mp3 players have enabled us to carry music with us anywhere we go so we never get bored Mp3 players have enabled us to carry music with us anywhere we go so we never get bored

13 we are constantly looking for more to be entertained which is creating more and more technological diversions we are constantly looking for more to be entertained which is creating more and more technological diversions current developments towards a scent synthesizer that will allow people to smell through the internet or while playing a video game current developments towards a scent synthesizer that will allow people to smell through the internet or while playing a video game At Universal Studios, California, there is already a 4-D Movie Motion Simulator At Universal Studios, California, there is already a 4-D Movie Motion Simulator 4-D transcends virtual reality by adding the effects of real elements, replacing what we would imagine things to smell like 4-D transcends virtual reality by adding the effects of real elements, replacing what we would imagine things to smell like

14 Castells also warned of the struggle that exists between the network and the quest for personal identity Castells also warned of the struggle that exists between the network and the quest for personal identity our societies are increasingly structured around the bipolar opposition of the Net and the Self our societies are increasingly structured around the bipolar opposition of the Net and the Self the more connected we become, the greater risk of alienation the more connected we become, the greater risk of alienation

15 Internet Cafes and Our Socializing Internet cafés were established so that the internet is literally is available for anyone at any time Internet cafés were established so that the internet is literally is available for anyone at any time Cafés used to be a place for people to gather Cafés used to be a place for people to gather In internet cafés people all sit separately at their own computer, there is hardly any face-to-face contact In internet cafés people all sit separately at their own computer, there is hardly any face-to-face contact

16 Our Communication Cell phones, email and messenger services have replaced meeting in person Cell phones, email and messenger services have replaced meeting in person We use these technologies so much that we no longer put thought into what we do or say which causes words to lose their meaning We use these technologies so much that we no longer put thought into what we do or say which causes words to lose their meaning People used to put effort into letters they wrote, now communication is so simple that we say n’importe quoi online People used to put effort into letters they wrote, now communication is so simple that we say n’importe quoi online

17 The Other Side Some argue that people put just as much effort into writing emails as they would writing a letter Some argue that people put just as much effort into writing emails as they would writing a letter Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=400w4XnjElI Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=400w4XnjElI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=400w4XnjElI This move towards realism and break in communication can only affect us if we allow machines to ruin us This move towards realism and break in communication can only affect us if we allow machines to ruin us

18 The Other Side machines have greatly influenced our lives in a positive way machines have greatly influenced our lives in a positive way users that are disadvantaged in the senses (disabilities) will be able to use machines as an alternative users that are disadvantaged in the senses (disabilities) will be able to use machines as an alternative Medical Intelligence Inc. has designed a permanently-fixed wrist bracelet that incorporates three technologies to help passively but effectively monitor those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias Medical Intelligence Inc. has designed a permanently-fixed wrist bracelet that incorporates three technologies to help passively but effectively monitor those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias

19 designers at Intuitive Surgical Inc., have developed and robot that in effect is an improvement on an existing surgical method known as "keyhole" surgery which surgeons use elongated chopstick- like tools teamed with a tiny camera to work inside the body designers at Intuitive Surgical Inc., have developed and robot that in effect is an improvement on an existing surgical method known as "keyhole" surgery which surgeons use elongated chopstick- like tools teamed with a tiny camera to work inside the body the da Vinci, takes the surgical instruments away from the surgeon and enables him or her with 3-D vision the da Vinci, takes the surgical instruments away from the surgeon and enables him or her with 3-D vision a surgeon can use technology to perform an operation from a remote location (such as their home) on a patient in a surgery room a surgeon can use technology to perform an operation from a remote location (such as their home) on a patient in a surgery room
