Basically, user interface is the space where interactions between humans and machines occur. Interface can be expressed as a set of commands and instructions a user follows to communicate with a digital program.

The goal of this interaction is to facilitate better functioning and operation of the machine through the input from the user’s end. Simultaneously, the machine feeds back information to properly channelize the operator’s decision making process. User interface designing focuses on developing interfaces for software and machines to maximize the user experience and enhance user interaction.
