Abstract:

THIS PROJECT DEVELOPS AN INTELLIGENT INTERFACE FOR A COMMAND AND CONTROL DECISION-MAKER TRYING TO USE MULTIPLE ARTIFICAL-INTELLIGENCE BASED DECISION AIDS IN A COORDINATED MANNER. IT ADDRESSES THE CRITICAL NEED FOR COMMAND AND CONTROL DECISION-MAKERS TO BE ABLE TO USE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AIDS WITHOUT COMPROMISING THEIR INTUITIVE COGNITIVE APPROACH TO THE REAL TIME AND MULTI-TASKING DEMANDS OF COMMAND AND CONTROL. SPECIFICALLY, THE INTELLIGENT INTERACE EMPLOYS A MODEL OF ITS USER TO ANTICIPATE THE USER'S SHIFTS IN ATTENTION AMONG COMMAND AND CONTROL TASKS, ADAPTING ITS COMPUTATIONS AS THESE ATTENTION SHIFTS OCCUR. THIS ADAPTIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE INTERFACE ALLOWS THE DECISION MAKER TO PURSUE THE COMMAND AND CONTROL PROBLEM AS THE BATTLEFIELD ENVIRONMENT DEMANDS, WITHOUT HAVING TO STOP TO ACTIVATE AND/OR DEACTIVATE EACH INDIVIDUAL DECISION AID REQUIRED ALONG THE WAY. THE USER MODEL IS BUILT THROUGH AN INNOVATIVE INTEGRATION OF THREE TECHNOLOGIES, THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES OF PLAN RECOGNITION AND BLACKBOARD BASED CONTROL, AND THE COGNITIVE SCIENCE MODELING TOOL GOMS.
