yes what about seeing the human machine interaction from the other side..
where the machine consciousness interperstes the oterh factors in the the sort of unconscious cues in human /human or
animal/animal err let me expand that to anything/anything interaction like
the rhythm, the body temperature, cooling fan speed, breath or cpu useage
rate, relative postions etc etc..the subtleties that go along with the
obvious information transferal..

for example im thinking about that  lovely work where a persons mouse
movements are captured  and looped.. it is just point and move and click but
the trajectories display personality as well which im sure the machien could
interpret.. or pat cadigans  book "synners" where the computer knows who is
typing into it by the rhythm and pattern of of thier keystrokes..
