This paper presents the current state of research and practice for human intent inferencing, recognition, and application. The paper addresses both the specific topic of human intent inferencing and areas closely associated with human intent inferencing drawn from the research areas of artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, and cognitive science. Examples of these closely related topic areas are cognitive modeling and knowledge representation, plan/goal recognition and interpretation, and mixed initiative and collaborative problem-solving. Finally, the paper closes with a summary of the issues still remaining in the area of human intent inferencing and some recommendations on future research directions.
