Which Came First: The User or the Interface? Keeping the Human in the Loop from Design Phase to Finished Product

Dennis Perzanowski

We believe that cognitively modeled robotic systems will be easier to use. Just as humans communicate with one another, facilitated by shared systems (linguistic, social, and cognitive), human-robot interaction can be similarly facilitated. Without cognitive capabilities, communication between a human and a robot is more difficult and it is perhaps subject to failure. Therefore, we have been involved in designing and implementing a cognitively modeled human-robot interface. Based on a pilot study of our interface, we discuss the importance of human subject studies needed to verify the various claims of a robotics interface that purports to be cognitively modeled.
