It has become increasingly clear that a coming ubiquitous society consisting of people’s everyday life, production activities, etc. is governed through integration of human and artifacts including various automated machines and information technologies. Wherein, the ecological and evolutional prospects brought about by the interactions of many subsystems are to be argued. This article describes the summary of the discussions on an academic roadmap by the members of the working group on Creating New Society through Innovations of Human Interface. The future societies enabled by the development of interface technologies are predicted, and key issues for realizing a truly sustainable society and human-oriented technology are presented.
