Abstract:

When a human and computer are joined forming a human-computer system, the two decision-makers must work together if the humans workload is to be reduced and overall system performance maintained or improved. Independent actions by each decision maker could prove to be counterproductive. This thesis proposes that cooperation between decision makers can be fostered by using the computer to monitor the actions of the human. Then, the human can act freely, and the computer will use decision policies that do not conflict with the humans current actions, but adapt to them.
