Abstract

The growing complexity of man-machine systems requires greater attention in the design of information exchange across the man-machine interface. ‘Meaningful interaction’ is the goal of such design. This paper presents some background from human-computer interaction (HCI) and discusses potential insights from communication theory and from semiotics to dialogue design.
