Human-Machine Communication focuses on the theory and practice of communication with and about digital interlocutors, which may take the form of artificial conversation entities, artificially intelligent software, embodied machine communicators (robots), and technologically-augmented persons (cyborgs), as well as on communication in the context of machine spaces (virtual and augmented realities) and human-machine configurations. Additionally, the journal will publish contributions that shed light on the relationship between human and machine, as constructed through discourse and interaction.
