This chapter deals with the question of how the interaction between humans and computers may be designed to enable both partners to bring in their respective strengths. In the context of information extraction from semi-structured documents, several scenarios of interaction are identified and analyzed with respect to their adequacy for cooperative problem solving. The theoretical considerations are illustrated by a particular interaction approach called consistency queries. The chapter aims to initiate a discussion concerning the design and investigation of interaction scenarios which enable humans and machines to collaboratively solve problems.
