Abstract

To cope with today’s frequent, extensive and unpredictable changes, humans and machines need to work together on the same team. Team organization and management called for now is to develop a truly adaptable network without any constraints. Movement works as a communication tool for the human-machine team, and in addition, movement will bring emotional harmonization between humans and machines and psychological satisfaction and happiness to humans. Although instinct has been neglected in traditional engineering, it plays an important role to coordinate many body parts and balance our bodies, and for interactive holistic perception and for making better decisions. Emerging reservoir computing will produce extremely small devices so they will work together on us and enable us to interact directly with the outside world through our bodies. And such human-machine team will motivate us to challenge rehabilitation and healthcare, which, therefore, will become a kind of a game, But to achieve this goal, a holistic and quantitative performance indicator is necessary. Euclidean Space approach requires orthonormality and units. But to manage movements, we must be free from these constraints. Therefore, Mahalanobis Distance-Pattern Approach, which is non-Euclidean, is proposed.
