Keynote Title:
Man-Machine Interactions Improvement by means of Automatic Human Personality Identification

Ryszard Tadeusiewicz, Adrian Horzyk

During the man-machine interactions planning and forming we must frequently concentrate on the semantic aspects of communication. For example, striving to more acceptable (for users) forms of communication with numerous computer applications we put big effort in the increasing of machine intelligence, developing more advances methods of automatic reasoning and enriching quantity and quality of knowledge built-in into computer resources. Meanwhile, emotions play an equally essential role as rational reasoning in the judge intelligence of a partner. Therefore, a computer could be accepted as intelligent (or even liked) partner in cooperation with the man if it considers human needs, especially the emotional ones. Such needs must be first recognized. Such recognition must be performed during the natural interactions between man and machine because nobody likes to be tested or examined before they can start merit communication with the selected computer application. Moreover, nobody can honestly and objectively classify their own personality. Hence, in this aspect, we cannot obtain necessary information asking a person about his or her features of personality. The keynote will present a new method for automatic human needs recognition. The personality and needs of the partner can be recognized watching the following behaviors:
  • verbal, the way of talking, using vocabulary, phrases, inflection, sentence constructions, ...
  • non-verbal (body language), facial and body expressions, the way of movement, dressing-up, driving cars, bicycles, … concerning environment, family, etc.
During the typical man-machine communication we can perform automatic passive classification of man personality by means of psycholinguistic analysis. The details of how this personality can be discovered during natural language man-machine communication will be presented during the lecture.
