Human Interoperability

  1. 1. A fresh, enriching and revolutionary perspective on interoperability Human Interoperability This presentation is all about … ©Emovere.nl
  2. 2. Human Interoperability Some Further Explanation: This presentation is all about humans that want to really understand each other. Quickly, smoothly, right the first time and also just in time. Anywho. Anywhere. Anytime. Anywhy. Anything. Why? Humans, want to tune, to gear their mutual behaviours effectively to create Progress and Success. To accomplish that goal, interoperability is pointedly required at the human level. This undoubtedly requires interoperability at the technical level too, but that alone is no longer adequate! ©Emovere.nl This presentation is all about …
  3. 3. Technical and Human Technical interoperability Technical interoperability is – no doubt – a necessary condition for human interoperability… Machines need to inter-operate at their own level too! interoperability ©Emovere.nl
  4. 4. Technical and Human But… Human interoperability is where it is all about! Since it are humans that want to tune, to gear their mutual behaviours effectively in order to create Progress and Success! Important truth is that technical and human interoperability… differ. Yes, even Differ Qualitatively. Human interoperability Regardless of the amount of technology involved! Unfortunately… this truth still is widely unknown… interoperability ©Emovere.nl

Key: Predictable behaviour. ©Emovere.nl Source: (e.g.) http://primavera.fee.uva.nl/PDFdocs/2002-06.pdf From way back we know of… The key value of our machines!

The motivated assignment of meaning controls human behaviour. Key: Motivated behaviour.

  8. 8. Widely Unknown Unfortunately, this qualitative difference is widely unknown… As a consequence… our machines are hardly, if at all, equiped to support interoperability at the human level… And… as a consequence of that consequence… we, human beings (yes, that’s us), are deprived of adequate support of our machines. Machines that can do a lot better! Even the designers of our machines are largely unaware of it… Right now we find ourselves increasingly trapped at the tech- nical – stimulus-response – level hell of a ©Emovere.nl

  15. 15. So… what is so special about human interoperability? The receiving side is able to perform the intended behaviour if… In order to be able to construct the intended meaning the receiving side needs to be able to access all the relevant signs that make up the whole situation in which the sending side created its intention. the receiving side is able to construct the intended meaning.

  16. 16. Human behaviour Depends on … … assigned meaning depends on … Needed to effectively create Progress and Success… … the assigned meaning … … the specific situation at hand Another situation  another meaning  other behaviour This… indeed… means: ©Emovere.nl
  17. 17. Two ‘worlds’ of interoperability Predictable …Motivated … How can we bridge these two ‘worlds’? How can we facilitate human interoperability using machines that according to their very nature operate at a lower interoperability level? A technical world in which meaning annex behaviour needs to be fixed… A human world in which meaning annex behaviour is situational So… whether we like it or not… we have to deal with… In order to effectively create Progress and Success… ©Emovere.nl Throughout Qualitatively differing
  18. 18. Intermezzo: Soap Soap molecules have two sides… The one side (tail) is the water-liking side. The other side (head) is the dirt-liking side. When we wash ourselves or our clothes, the soap molecules ‘stick’ their heads into the dirt (fat). And the result – it looks very much like the picture shown – dissolves in water easily. So… what lesson can we learn from the soap molecule? The atoms comprising each soap molecule are organised in such a way that the molecule as a whole is able to bridge the differences between the two worlds. ©Emovere.nl
  19. 19. Organisation of information… Just like soap? Are we able to come up with an organisation of information that succesfully bridges the human world and the technical world? ©Emovere.nl Can we organise information-elements in such a way that information as a whole is able to bridge the differences between the two worlds? Fixed, predefined meaning Situationally defined meaning
  20. 20. Yes! Let’s communicate the whole picture! Explicitly. But… We now know that: This is only a part of the whole picture. The meaning of information is situational and therefore enough information about the situation at hand needs to be provided as well to complete the picture. The whole coherent picture is necessary to optimally enable the receiver to assign the intended meaning… to perform the intended behaviour. 1. 2. 3. 4. Indeed, the information about the situation at hand needs to be made explicit too! Until now… we provided our machines with all the information that we thought was necessary for meaningful communication. ©Emovere.nl (1)
  21. 21. Yes! Let’s organise information-elements in a way that is… invariant to any situation at hand. But… We now know that: Such an organisation only fits that very specific situation. Situations become more and more are volatile nowadays. Such an organisation is, in fact, far too rigid. We need a fine grained organisation – invariant to the situation at hand – that enables us to precisely compose any situational whole… yielding meaning that exactly fits any situation. 1. 2. 3. 4. Until now… we organised our information-elements tailor-made to fit a specific problem-situation. ©Emovere.nl (2)
  22. 22. And now… we know … now we understand this qualitative difference between technical and human interoperability. And now we know how to bridge it. As a consequence… we are now able to equip our machines to support interoperability at the human level… And… as a consequence of that consequence… we get increasingly provided with truly supportive machines: creating Progress and Success! And we find ourselves released from the natural limits of the technical level ©Emovere.nl
  23. 23. We finally reach(ed) interoperability at the level! Thank you for your kind interest in this presentation on Human Interoperability A fresh, enriching and revolutionary perspective… ©Emovere.nl Needed to effectively create Progress and Success…
