Cognitive Technologies on the Cutting Edge

CTI has studied the way users interact with advanced decision aiding systems and has developed methods for adapting decision aid displays and reasoning strategies to human cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

CTI developed a decision analytic theory of trust in decision aids that conceptualizes it as a situation-specific expectation of system performance, over different time periods and conditional on different phases and circumstances of use. The model makes predictions about the dynamic evolution of trust and the appropriateness of different user interaction strategies (e.g., when monitoring is or is not appropriate). We have developed training for critical thinking by decision aid users based on the model.
