Requirements For Computational Approaches To Analyzing Resilience In Human-Machine Teams

Published in Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (2021), 2021

Conference Paper: Human-machine teams (HMTs) in complex work domains need to be able to adapt to variable and uncertain work demands. Computational modeling and simulation can provide novel approaches to the evaluation of HMTs performing complex joint activities, affording large-scale, quantitative analysis of team characteristics (such as system architecture and governance protocols) and their effects on resilience. Drawing from literature in resilience engineering, human-automation interaction, and cognitive systems engineering, this paper provides a theoretical exploration of the use of computational modeling and simulation to analyze resilience in HMTs. Findings from literature are summarized in a set of requirements that highlight key aspects of resilience in HMTs that need to be accounted for in future modeling and evaluation efforts.

A Critical Examination of Autonomous Flight Safety Systems From a Cognitive Systems Engineering Perspective: Challenges, Themes, and Outlying Risks

Published in International Astronautical Congress 2021, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 2021

Conference Paper examining the complexities and pitfalls introduced when automating irreversable and mission critical decisions. A cognitive systems engineering perspective is introduced in the emerging area of autonomous flight terminations, identifying the existence of implicit engineering tradeoffs made surrounding the deployment of AFSS.
