Abstract:

This is the final report on a two year research effort to investigate the cognitive basis for human-computer interaction and decision-making in complex, real-world environments, particularly those which unfold in real-time and make multiple demands on the attention of the human decision-maker. The main emphasis in the project has been to explore the extent to which models of the computer-users problem-solving strategies in these real-time multi-tasking RTMT environments can lead to the design of a more effective human-computer interfaces. RTMT environments include many of the most challenging problem domains faced by humans. Examples of these environments include aircraft and other vehicle cockpits, nuclear power control rooms, satellite and telecommunication network control, and weapons systems operation, to name but a few. These problem environments are undergoing rapid computerization, and are all critical to economic, personal, and national will-being. Therefore, they are inherently worthy of close study.
