Theme : Human Systems Design: from Research to Practice
Event Type : Conference
Event Code : 3350
The defense industry has seen a dramatic increase in technological advances in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning, wearable sensors, decision support, hybrid teaming, and more. With these advances, critical questions emerge about the role of the human in these sociotechnical systems. Understanding the fundamentals of human systems design is key to optimizing performance of new technology as well as the servicemen and servicewomen equipped with those technologies operating in real-time high-stakes decision making scenarios. As technology evolves, so do human performance dynamics. Research is required for understanding these new dynamics. So too, is an understanding of how those dynamics emerge during practical application, and their consequences. Human systems design is optimized by taking the insights from both research and practice.
This conference is one way by which the Human Systems community seeks to advance the field and optimize our warfighters' capabilities through education, consultation, research, and collaboration.
