This Special Issue aims to explore the opportunities and challenges of designing and developing machine learning and artificial intelligence for people.
Increasingly, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies power people-facing interactive and autonomous systems, for example, in healthcare, finance, entertainment, security, and other domains. Hopefully, these AI technologies will imbue such systems with more intelligent behavior and help to better serve the needs and goals of the stakeholders. Ultimately, the creation and use of such ML/AI-based systems is a people’s problem, motivating the need to study and design the interactions between ML and its stakeholders from a human-centered point of view. Human-centered machine learning (HCML) is an emerging interdisciplinary research area that shares this view and that considers human goals and behavior during the development of ML and AI-based systems.
We encourage authors to submit original works that are novel or extend existing work, survey and synthesize related fields, articulate a position, share recent case studies, or present thought-provoking design fictions about topics including but not limited to:
- Development and evaluation of fair ML models;
- Explanations and transparency of algorithmic decisions and models;
- Usability challenges and evaluation methods for HCML systems;
- Interactive machine learning techniques, algorithms, and interfaces;
- Methods for stakeholder participation in ML design;
- Interactive machine teaching methods and systems;
- Algorithms and interfaces for supporting human–AI collaboration and augmenting human intelligence (e.g., in decision making);
- Design guidelines for human-in-the-loop and machine-in-the-loop systems;
- Case studies of real-world applications of HCML in industry;
- Legal, ethical, and policy issues to consider when deploying HCML systems.
By collecting diverse perspectives, we hope to contribute to a shared understanding of the emerging HCML field, of how people think about, create, and use ML and AI systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Multimodal Technologies and Interaction is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
