What can machine learning do? Workforce implications

Science, Vol. 358, No. 6370. (22 December 2017), pp. 1530-1534,


Digital computers have transformed work in almost every sector of the economy over the past several decades (1). We are now at the beginning of an even larger and more rapid transformation due to recent advances in machine learning (ML), which is capable of accelerating the pace of automation itself. However, although it is clear that ML is a “general purpose technology,” like the steam engine and electricity, which spawns a plethora of additional innovations and capabilities (2), there is no ...


Robots and free software

In A World with Robots, Vol. 84 (2017), pp. 63-76,


This article examines whether the arguments put forward by Free Software advocates in the context of computers also apply for robots. It summarises their key arguments and explores whether or not they appear transferable to robot cases. Doing so, it comes to the conclusion that, in the majority of cases, the reasons that may make the use of Free Software over proprietary software preferable in other technologies, equally apply in the case of robots. ...


DDDAS-based information-aggregation for crowd dynamics modeling with UAVs and UGVs

Frontiers in Robotics and AI, Vol. 2 (08 April 2015),


Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) collaboratively play important roles in crowd tracking for applications such as border patrol and crowd surveillance. Dynamic data-driven application systems (DDDAS) paradigm has been developed for these applications to take advantage of real-time monitoring data. In the DDDAS paradigm, one crucial step in crowd surveillance is crowd dynamics modeling, which is based on multi-resolution crowd observation data collected from both UAVs and UGVs. Data collected from UAVs capture global crowd motion but ...

The question concerning technology, and other essays



[Excerpt] Modern man as scientist, through the prescribed procedures of experiment, inquires of nature to learn more and more about it. But in so doing he does not relate himself to nature as the Greek related himself to the multitudinous presencing of everything that met him spontaneously at every turn. He does not relate to nature in the openness of immediate response. For the scientist's "nature" is in fact, Heidegger says, a human construction. Science strikingly manifests the way in which modern man as subject represents reality. The modern ...


Automated group facilitation for gathering wide audience end-user requirements

In System Sciences (HICSS), 2013 46th Hawaii International Conference on (January 2013), pp. 195-204,


The System development projects continue to fail at unacceptable rates. Including a wide array of users in the requirements development process for a wide-audience system can help to increase system success. Facilitated group workshops can effectively and efficiently gather requirements from several different users. To decrease cost and increase the number of potential workshop participants, we designed an embodied agent facilitator to guide groups through the facilitation process. We extend previous research which found human facilitated prompting to be effective at ...


The philosophy and epistemology of simulation: a review

Simulation & Gaming, Vol. 41, No. 1. (01 February 2010), pp. 20-50,


The philosophical literature on simulations has increased dramatically during the past 40 years. Many of its main topics are epistemological. For example, philosophers consider how the results of simulations help explain natural phenomena. This essay’s review treats mainly simulations in the social sciences. It considers the nature of simulations, the varieties of simulation, and uses of simulations for representation, prediction, explanation, and policy decisions. Being oriented toward philosophy of science, it compares simulations to models and experiments and considers whether simulations ...


Making autonomic computing systems accountable: the problem of human computer interaction

Database and Expert Systems Applications, 2003. Proceedings. 14th International Workshop on In Database and Expert Systems Applications, 2003. Proceedings. 14th International Workshop on (2003), pp. 718-724,


The vision of autonomic computing raises fundamental questions about how we interact with computer systems. In this paper, we outline these questions and propose some strategies for addressing them. In particular, we examine the problem of how we may make autonomic computing systems accountable in interaction for their behaviour. We conclude that there is no technological solution to this problem. Rather, it calls for designers of autonomic computing systems to engage with users so as to understand at first hand the ...


Autonomous technology – sources of confusion: a model for explanation and prediction of conceptual shifts

Ergonomics, Vol. 57, No. 3. (5 December 2013), pp. 455-470,


Today, autonomous is often used for technology with a more intelligent self-management capability than common automation. This concept usage is maladaptive, ignoring both the distinction between autonomy and heteronomy according to Kant's categorical imperative and that the meaning of autonomy implies qualities technology cannot have. Being autonomous is about having the right to be wrong, a right justified by accountability and insightful understanding of real-life values, and it is about being externally uncontrollable. The contemporary use of autonomy as well as ...


Ironies of automation

Automatica, Vol. 19, No. 6. (November 1983), pp. 775-779,


This paper discusses the ways in which automation of industrial processes may expand rather than eliminate problems with the human operator. Some comments will be made on methods of alleviating these problems within the ‘classic’ approach of leaving the operator with responsibility for abnormal conditions, and on the potential for continued use of the human operator for on-line decision-making within human-computer collaboration. ...

The effects of level of automation and adaptive automation on human performance, situation awareness and workload in a dynamic control task

Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science, Vol. 5, No. 2. (1 March 2004), pp. 113-153,


This paper extends previous research on two approaches to human-centred automation: (1) intermediate levels of automation (LOAs) for maintaining operator involvement in complex systems control and facilitating situation awareness; and (2) adaptive automation (AA) for managing operator workload through dynamic control allocations between the human and machine over time. Some empirical research has been conducted to examine LOA and AA independently, with the objective of detailing a theory of human-centred automation. Unfortunately, no previous work has studied the interaction of these ...


Level of automation effects on performance, situation awareness and workload in a dynamic control task

Ergonomics, Vol. 42, No. 3. (1 March 1999), pp. 462-492,


Various levels of automation (LOA) designating the degree of human operator and computer control were explored within the context of a dynamic control task as a means of improving overall human/machine performance. Automated systems have traditionally been explored as binary function allocations; either the human or the machine is assigned to a given task. More recently, intermediary levels of automation have been discussed as a means of maintaining operator involvement in system performance, leading to improvements in situation awareness and reductions ...
