Human Experiments in Trust in Distributed Decision-Making
- This video shows one of the NS CTA’s human-in-the-loop experiments to understand how distributed teams make decisions under conditions of information uncertainty. The team is presented with an unfolding situation, using a combination of immersive virtual environment and information presentation interface, while data is collected about their communications and other actions. This type of experiment can be used to quantify the impact of information reliability on the speed, quality, and process of distributed decision-making.
Fighting Information Overload
- As decision-makers have access to more data streams and sources of information, they are faced with the challenge of picking out relevant and reliable information from an overwhelming amount of noise and putting together a larger picture from many pieces of information. Apollo and InfoNet Miner are two promising NS CTA technologies that address this need.
Characterizing Networks and Predicting Links
- This demonstration shows a new tool for exploring and predicting network graphs using a range of different analysis algorithms. This kind of analysis can be used to look for missing or hidden links in networks, as well as understanding an individual’s importance within a network.
