MMI (man machine interface)

HCI (human computer interaction) is a subset of MMI; how can we interact with a machine intelligently? We dont understand human language development completely so far in 2004. AMESLAN (american sign language) is a good example of a basic language. It is used by people with language problems communicating efectively. It has been used to communicate with apes too. Language = gestures, signs, sounds, smells, touch & pain (high intensity touch), taste, all used in various proportions by different animals. Can we have a universal language? will it be pictorial like the ancient Egyptians (Indians, Mesopotamians, Chinese) had 5500 years ago? Pictures carry much more eficiently a message than words. natural computing can create self learning sytems. What sensory input should it have? Can we have more options than we have (3S2T)?

Thanga, thx for re-invigorating a subject we had floated before. I have evolved a lot into the 'Synchronicity' events that have been occuring in my life since ( in memory), 1987. Which interface, perhaps a no time-space portal through which information ( meaningful) can collide through a media ( in time and space co-ordinate), which is in this case me, a human, and then leave you the choice to ponder that brain/soul/spirit, et al, info-communicate through a process, yet remote in everyday living. Last 2 years churned my life, through a whirlwind !!!Write back, Thanga.
