Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR SIGNAL PROCESSING AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS THAT EMPLOY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) TECHNOLOGY. HOWEVER POWERFUL A COMPUTATIONAL TOOL AI MAY PROVE TO BE, THE ULTIMATE VALUE TO THE SYSTEM USER WILL STILL BE A FUNCTION OF THE QUALITY OF THE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE. USERS WILL EXPECT THE OPERATION OF AN AI SYSTEM, AS REFLECTED IN THE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE, TO BE LOGICAL AND STRAIGHTFORWARD (I.E., PARALLELING THEIR OWN COGNITIVE PROCESS). STANDARD, LOGICAL DISPLAY LAYOUTS AND DATA PRESENTATION FORMATS, EFFICIENT QUERY TECHNIQUES, AND BRIEF, BUT LUCID, EXPLANATIONS OF ANY CONCLUSIONS DRAWN BY THE COMPUTER ARE ALL NECESSARY ELEMENTS OF AN EFFECTIVE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE FOR AN AI SYSTEM. THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL IMPOSE ADDITIONAL BURDENS ON DESIGNERS TO STRUCTURE THE VISIBLE ELEMENTS OF THE SYSTEM (I.E., THE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE) TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH HUMAN CAPABILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL EMPLOY A COMBINATION OF ANALYTICAL AND EMPIRICAL TECHNIQUES TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE A COMPREHENSIVE SET OF GUIDELINES FOR DESIGNING MAN/MACHINE INTERFACES FOR AI SIGNAL PROCESSING AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS. THE FINAL PRODUCTION OF THIS PROJECT WILL BE A DESIGN SPECIFICATION FOR THE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE OF A REPRESENTATIVE AI SIGNAL PROCESSING AND INFORMATION MANAGMENT SYSTEM.
