Abstract:

The three primary objectives of this project were to develop communication metrics, evaluate the potential of voice recognition software, and to decide if using the two together to analyze team communication would be a viable option to explore for communication metrics. Following initial evaluations, some aspects of our developed communication metrics show positive correlations between the measures we developed and performance on the synthetic task, and further research in this area could prove beneficial. Another promising aspect is that, even though we had to perform many of the counts and measures by hand, the same measures would not be very difficult to automate, decreasing the evaluation time significantly.
