Abstract
3 Sigma Research investigates and develops an advanced innovative Tangible User Interface (TUI) that provides a novel operator interface for real-time operator manipulation of the cyber environment. This TUI provides a highly abstract physical embodiment of the complex cyber environment, that commanders and controllers can touch, visualize, and recognize patterns. This kind of manipulation of objects within the TUI enables a new paradigm of on-the-fly control of autonomic systems. One of the key advantages of our envisioned system is that by mapping the cyber domain into a tactile and physical representation, humans can effectively and efficiently apply human pattern recognition to the analysis and response to cyber attacks never before possible. The use of pattern recognition to solve problems has sometimes been called"intuitive"or reactive decision making. Intuitive decision making draws heavily on pattern recognition derived from previous experience. Thus the mapping of the domain into the representational space is critical to both aid comprehension and support application of prior experience. Reading is like telling; graphical displays are like showing; our approach is involving. Our approach allows operators to make more accurate, faster, and more trustworthy decisions.
