Brett Jefferson will present on “Using systems factorial technology to understand automation” in Cognitive brown bag Weds. 9/25 at noon in Tobin 521B. Abstract below. All are welcome!
Abstract. Viewing the perception as a systems processing model provides insight and rigor to common questions we have about the way humans understand the world. In this talk, I will discuss one such modeling framework, Systems Factorial Technology, and how it is applied to understanding transparency in automation. Specifically, we apply the capacity coefficient to measure cognitive resource allocation when information about what an automated system is relying on is present to users.
