Trust calibration for a human-autonomy team is the process by which a human adjusts their understanding of the automation’s capabilities; trust calibration is needed to engender appropriate reliance on automation. Herein, we develop an Instance-based Learning Theory ACT-R model of decisions to obtain and rely on an automated assistant for visual search in a UAV interface. We demonstrate that model matches well the human predictive power statistics measuring reliance calibration; we obtain from the model an internal estimate of automation reliability that mirrors human subjective ratings. Our model is a promising beginning toward a computational process model for trust and reliance for human-machine teaming.

Advantage of IBLT? Last updated 5 months ago

Thank you for giving a nice talk on the exciting topic. I'm curious about this topic because factors such as prediction and emotion seem to be involved. In this context, I'd like to know your ideas on the advantage of IBLT to represent this phenomenon. I think it's possible to use other learning methods such as reinforcement learning or utility le...

individual differences? Last updated 5 months ago

Hi Leslie! Nice talk! I was wondering whether it would be possible to examine whether a group of individuals who relies more on automation also shows model performance metrics in the same direction; in other words: can your model explain individual differences? If not, what would be needed?
