Fall 2016 GRASP Seminar: Steven Rogers, Air Force Research Lab, “QuEST for Consciousness”

September 30, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


QuEST is an analytical and software development approach to improve human-machine team decision quality over a wide range of stimuli (handling unexpected queries) by providing computer-based decision aids that are engineered to provide both intuitive reasoning and “conscious” deliberative thinking. QuEST provides a mathematical framework to understand what can be known by a group of people and their computer-based decision aids about situations to facilitate prediction of when more people (different training) or computer aids are necessary to make a particular decision.
