Codebreaker Seminar Set Feb. 4

February 1, 2021

Dr. Ron Boring, founder of the Human Systems Laboratory at Idaho National Laboratory, will present at the CAES Codebreaker seminar on Thursday, Feb. 4.  

Boring is a manager for the Human Factors and Reliability Department at INL. The author of more than 300 technical papers, chapters, and reports on human-system interaction and human error, Boring is a distinguished scientist, an inaugural CAES fellow, and Fellow of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.  

Boring’s presentation is titled “The future is automated, but we still need humans.” The talk will focus on while the fallibility of human operators was the initial catalyst for new AI implementations, automated systems can still fail. The presentation will address the need to develop technologies like explainable AI that allow the human to understand and benefit from automation while still maintaining control over the system.  

The CAES Codebreaker seminar takes place on the first Thursday of the month at 3:30 p.m. It provides a forum for students and researchers to address their work, communicate opportunities and challenges to a receptive audience, and increase dialogue among CAES affiliates. 

Boring’s presentation will be streamed live via Microsoft Teams.
