Abstract : The development of a Generalized Human-Machine Interface is driven by consideration of human communication capabilities and limitations. The goal is to develop a system which provides machine capabilities similar to those required for communication among human beings. System features resulting from this approach and incorporated in the design include: application independence, attention monitoring, dynamic device assignment, human performance monitoring, and natural language processing. In addition, a special data management structure has been designed. System architecture and development progress are described. (Author)
