Join is for this talk sponsored by the UMD INFO college Organizational Teams and Technology Research Society (OTTRS) Interest Group! Open to the public. Registration required.

Prior work on the interaction of humans and autonomous systems has focused on human control of systems. Though meaningful human control is imperative, only some humans will exercise control over systems. Other humans will act as teammates, sharing goals and interdependence with systems that they perceive to be autonomous. Unfortunately, current systems have a long way to go before they can perform the behaviors that would make them effective team members. The Artificial Intelligence and Autonomy for Multi-Agent Systems\ (ArtIAMAS) human-machine teaming area seeks to bridge the gap between what is currently possible with autonomous systems and future human-machine teaming concepts. In this talk, I will discuss our goals and current work.

Bio: Dr. Susan Campbell, Senior Lecturer at the College of Information Studies, University of Maryland. Dr. Campbell is interested in what makes people good at interacting with complex technologies and technological systems. She holds a joint appointment between the Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (as an Associate Research Scientist) and the College of Information Studies (as a Senior Lecturer) at the University of Maryland. She is the university lead for human-machine teaming on the ArtIAMAS cooperative agreement. Her work focuses on measuring individual differences related to cognitive performance, training cognitive skills, and building systems that complement human strengths. She holds a PhD in Psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park and a BS in Cognitive Science from Carnegie Mellon.
