2017 Webinar Profile

Trust in Automation: Lessons Learned From Auto-GCAS
Presented by Joseph B. Lyons, Air Force Research Lab
Friday, May 19, 2017

ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Trust in automation research has proliferated as automated systems are developed and fielded in the military and society. Yet, few studies have examined trust in automation of real systems, with real operators, using technology with real-world consequences. In this webinar, Lyons will discuss the research directions of the Human Insight and Trust (HIT) team within the Air Force Research Laboratory. He will describe high-level directions for this team and do a “deep dive” into one applied project in which trust was studied in the context of F-16 pilots and a novel automated safety system.
