Abstract:

This is the final report of a multifaceted research and development effort in man-machine communication. The general goal of the program is to facilitate existing and future man-machine communication in areas of high military impact, including rapidly expanding use of on-line computing in communications and command and control. Highlights of the accomplishments of this research include identification of major causes of man-machine communication difficulty for the computer-naive discovery of major communication structures in human communication that have been left out of man-machine communication creation of a process model that exhibits these structures in a form which can be imitated directly in creating new man-machine communication processes creation of a new overview of how human communication functions in cooperative task-oriented activity and assistance in ARPA policy formation on CAI equipment development.
