Dr. Ron Boring
Idaho National Laboratory, USA
Title: Has HSI Outgrown the Human? Toward the Future of Human-Centric Intelligent Interfaces, 9.07.2021, 18.15
Abstract: With rapid advances in intelligent user interfaces, machine learning, and automation, system developers are reaching the point where we are able to design the human out of the system. This poses an existential challenge for the field of human-system interaction, when the role of the human user is displaced by technology. The gradual mechanization of human tasks is as ancient as our species, but the ubiquitous elimination of the human user is a new phenomenon. Is there still a need for human-system interfaces when there is no need for the human? What should future interfaces look like? What functions do interfaces serve? In this talk, Dr. Ron Boring, a cognitive scientist from Idaho National Laboratory, will present a human-centric view of the need for humans to remain in the loop even as technology advances. The human interface will emerge as the grand challenge of intelligent systems.
Bio: Ronald Laurids Boring, Ph.D., FHFES, is a Distinguished Scientist and Department Manager for the Human Factors and Reliability Department at Idaho National Laboratory. Dr. Boring has led research projects for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NASA, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, the Department of Defense, and the Norwegian Research Council. He previously worked as a human reliability researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, a usability engineer for Microsoft Corporation and Expedia Corporation, a guest researcher in human-computer interaction at the National Research Council of Canada, and a visiting human factors scientist at OECD Halden Reactor Project. He and his research team developed the Guideline for Operational Nuclear Usability and Knowledge Elicitation (GONUKE) for conducting human factors in support of nuclear technologies, the Human Unimodel for Nuclear Technology to Enhance Reliability (HUNTER) dynamic human reliability framework, and the Advanced Nuclear Interface Modeling Environment (ANIME) for prototyping digital interfaces in nuclear power environments.
