Human Factors Consideration for the Design of Collaborative Machine Assistants

Sung Park, Arthur D. Fisk, Wendy A. Rogers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent improvements in technology have facilitated the use of robots and virtual humans not only in entertainment and engineering but also in the military (Hill et al., 2003), healthcare (Pollack et al., 2002), and education domains (Johnson, Rickel, & Lester, 2000). As active partners of humans, such machine assistants can take the form of a robot or a graphical representation and serve the role of a financial assistant, a health manager, or even a social partner. As a result, interactive technologies are becoming an integral component of people’s everyday lives.
