Interaction-Centred Design for Optimizing Human-Autonomy Symbiosis Technology

July 30 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm

With more and more enabling AI technologies applied to enhance machine capabilities, the machine will become increasingly autonomous. Autonomy has been singled out as a key component of the third offset strategy for military applications, which intends to deliver leap-ahead battlefield technologies that team up soldiers with autonomous systems to enhance military capabilities. However, humans are still vulnerable when AI enabled autonomy does not understand human intent or follow human instructions. Recent accidents to the Boeing 737 Max passengers ring the alarm again about the imperative needs of appropriate design concepts and scientific methodologies for developing safety critical AI functions and eventually collaborative partnership of human and autonomous systems. With AI and its related technologies reach their bottleneck, it is even more vital to follow scientific and systematic methodology to understand well about capacity and limitation of both human intelligence and machine intelligence so that their strengths can be optimized for a collaborative partnership when dealing with safety critical situations. Thus, this talk discusses about the needs for the researchers and practitioners who are interested in building and using 21st century human-autonomy symbiosis technologies (Why). It touches the topics of proper analytical methodologies for functional requirements of the intelligent systems, design methodologies, implementation strategies, evaluation approaches, and trusted relationships (How). These aspects will be explained with real-world examples when considering contextual constraints of technology, human capability and limitations, and functionalities that AI and autonomous systems should achieve (When). The focus will be on the context-based and interaction-centered design (ICD) approach for developing a safe, trusted, and collaborative partnership between human and autonomy by optimizing the interaction between human intelligence and AI. The challenges and potential issues will also be discussed for guiding future research and development activities when augmenting human capabilities with AI and autonomous systems.
