Automation and Human Performance: What Helps and What Hinders

Abstract: Automation transparency and Degrees of Automation are long-held human factors design principles intended to better align human and machine responsibilities, capabilities, goals and activities. Incorporating these principles, in theory, should improve human interaction with agent-oriented automation. This talk by Interim MIE Chair and Professor, Greg Jamieson, presents findings from his recent award-winning study exploring the benefits and limitations of these principles in a nuclear power setting.

Greg A. Jamieson is a Professor and Clarice Chalmers Chair of Engineering Design in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto. He is currently serving as Interim Chair of the Department. Professor Jamieson received Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Psychology (with Distinction) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Masters of Applied Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Human Factors Engineering from the University of Toronto. He directs the Cognitive Engineering Laboratory, which conducts applied human factors engineering research in the natural resource and energy industries.
