    Interfacing Reality: Exploring Emerging Trends Between Humans and Machines




    The spontaneous growth of the World Wide Web over the past several years has resulted in a plethora of remote-controlled mechanical devices, all of them accessible from any networked computer in the world. This panel brings together a diverse collection of pioneers who are actively engaged in exploring future directions and implications of Internet-based robots and machinery Ð in essence, the newly emerging human-machine interface. The panel discusses current and future applications of such technology and several extremely relevant social issues, including: cultural impact, human acceptance, interaction, authenticity, responsibility, privacy, and security.
