      2: capable of acting on or influencing each other [syn:

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A term describing a program whose input and
     output are interleaved, like a conversation, allowing the
     user's input to depend on earlier output from the same run.
     The interaction with the user is usually conducted through
     either a text-based interface or a graphical user interface.
     Other kinds of interface, e.g. using speech recognition
     and/or speech synthesis, are also possible.
     This is in contrast to batch processing where all the input
     is prepared before the program runs and so cannot depend on
     the program's output.
