Cognitive Systems Engineering at the intersection of People, Technology, and Work
A relatively recent explosion of sensing capability allows people to explore new scenes at a distance over multiple temporal ranges.
I am investigating how these new human-sensor perceptual systems are an opportunity to extend human perceptual and attentional fluency to these new scales.
"The developers acknowledge that sensemaking is a problem –cameras are sprouting like mushrooms from every conceivable mounting space in the hopes of giving the operator that magic missing viewpoint...
...However, it is all ad hoc; there is no understanding of what viewpoints are needed for which tasks or how to transition between them. So called ‘Perceptual interfaces’ remain Neolithic."
