The Anticipation of Human Behavior Using "Parasitic Humanoid"
This paper proposes the concept of Parasitic Humanoid (PH) that can realize a wearable robot to establish intuitive interactions with wearers rather than conventional counter-intuitive ways like key-typing. It requires a different paradigm or interface technology which is called behavioral or ambient interface that can harmonize human-environment interactions to naturally lead to a more suitable state with the integration of information science and biologically inspired technology. We re-examine the use of wearable computers or devices from the viewpoint of behavioral information. Then, a possible way to realize PH is shown as integrated wearable interface devices. In order that PH establishes the harmonic interaction with wearers, a mutually anticipated interaction between a computer and human is necessary. To establish the harmonic interaction, we investigate the social interaction by experiments of human interactions where inputs and outputs of subjects are restricted in a low dimension at the behavioral level. The results of experiments are discussed with the attractor superimposition. Finally, we will discuss integrated PH system for human supports.
