About the Human Bond Communication (HBC)

Modern dexterous communication technology is progressively enabling humans to communicate their information through them with speech (aural) and media (optical) as underpinning essence. Humans realize this kind of aural and optical information by their optical and auditory senses. However, due to certain constraints, the ability to incorporate the other three sensory features namely, olfactory, gustatory, and tactile are still far from reality. Human bond communication is a novel concept that incorporates olfactory, gustatory, and tactile that will allow more expressive and holistic sensory information exchange through communication techniques for more human sentiment centric communication. This concept endorses the need of inclusion of other three senses and proposes an innovative approach of holistic communication for future communication network.
The training school on Human Bond Communication (HBC) is not just about introducing a new concept, but about igniting a revolutionary paradigm shift in communication. By transcending the limitations of traditional verbal and auditory modes, HBC opens up a world of exciting possibilities. This new approach leverages the often-overlooked senses of smell, taste, and touch to enrich interpersonal exchanges with a deeper, more emotive dimension. By incorporating these sensory modalities, HBC strives to facilitate a more immersive and holistic form of communication that transcends the conventional boundaries of traditional communication methods. This innovative concept holds the potential to reshape how we engage with one another within the framework of future communication networks.
