1330-1515 Panel Presentation SA and Big Data: Data analytic methods provide the potential to significantly speed and improve the quality of analysis of large volumes of data. This panel will explore the advent of big data and its use to improve situation awareness via information gathering and prioritization, integration and analysis, and projection of future trends. Technical issues associated with the development of effective big data applications will be explored by the panel, including its affect on understanding certainty or confidence in the underlying data or big data products, validation of big data algorithms, support for situation awareness in working with big data systems, and integration of big data with human decision making. This panel is applicable to work in multiple domains including military and commercial systems and will include a consideration of both technical and cognitive engineering issues.

1330-1515 Panel Presentation SA & Robotics: The panel on SA and Robotics is concerned with situation awareness and management issues involved in human-robot interaction. Those systems can range in complexity from a human operator controlling a single robot or a swarm of robots through a traditional interface, to teams of humans and robots freely interacting using natural means such as voice and gestures. Issues include techniques to maintain appropriate human SA given existing sensors and cognitive limitations, algorithms to allocate decision making between human oversight and robotic autonomy, and frameworks to manage collaboration in order to leverage respective strengths of humans and robots. The panel will start with an invited presentation, followed by brief rejoinders by the panel members, then an open discussion involving audience participants.

Panelists:

  • Matt Johnson (IHMC)
  • Scott Grigsby (SoarTech)
  • Florian Jentsch (University of Central Florida)
  • Volkan Ustun (USC Institute for Creative Technologies)
