Abstract:

Guidelines for the human factors engineering of the man-machine interface have traditionally focused on sensing and acting i.e., display features and input devices that conform to human perceptualmotor capabilities and preferences. In recent years, however, artificial intelligence AI techniques have introduced a new class of systems with which humans are required to interact systems which attempt to replicate, or improve on, human reasoning. As intelligent systems are proposed for an expanding sphere of operational roles, attention has begun to turn to machine-assisted thought, and to the manner in which computer-implemented storage and transformation of information can be optimally interfaced with human knowledge representations and processing strategies. Human-computer interface design has become cognitive. This report is intended as a contribution to the emerging application of cognitive science to human-computer interaction.
