Humanoid robots, similar to bots, perform certain activities as a substitute for humans, with the goal to imitate human behavior. The Turing test is an experiment that was conceived as a way of determining the machine's ability to use natural language and indirectly to prove its ability to think in a way similar to humans. With this collection of papers, we hope to fill the gap in HCI (Human Computer Interaction) research, which has not yet paid attention to the socio-cognitive nature of human-humanoid interaction, especially in the context of building a shared work environment. This Special Issue aims at exploring also philosophical questions about the boundaries of humanity, as well as issues concerning Searle's "Chinese room" paradox redefined in the context of machine learning, deep-learning and development of complex aware systems with a broadly defined humanoid interface
The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:
# Papers presenting qualitative and quantitative methodologies of measuring human-machine interaction.
# Affective computing applied in assessing humanoid bots' and robots' interaction with humans.
# Text mining and natural language processing as well as social network analysis tools related to measuring and accessing human-machine interaction. Neural network based humanoid agents and their interaction capacities with humans.
# Business-oriented papers (including such topics as: artificial intelligence supporting business processes, humanoid machines performance in a workplace in the company).
# Exploring the topic of human robot cooperation and trust.
