Keywords: usability, intelligent interactive systems


When creating algorithms or systems that are supposed to be used by people, we should be able to adopt a “binocular” view of users’ interaction with intelligent systems: a view that regards the design of interaction and the design of intelligent algorithms as interrelated parts of a single design problem. This special issue offers a coherent set of articles on two levels of generality that illustrate the binocular view and help readers to adopt it.
