Decision making in advanced technological systems

This graduate course (364 – 2 – 1971) presents selected issues in decision-making research and their application to the design and operation of advanced technological systems. In this course, students learn how to adapt behavioral models and apply them to the design of the interaction of humans with advanced, intelligent technological systems. We aim to improve the quality of interaction by addressing the topics from multiple perspectives (individual, team and group), multiple types of models (agent-based, interaction-based, behavioral), factors and domains.

Course poster session. On 23/6 the class will present 20 posters related to decision making and technology in the domains of transportation, media and communication, medical and health, and robots and human robot interaction.
