Adjustable Autonomy for Human and Information System Interaction

Michael S. Kerstetter and Scott D. G. Smith

This paper is a position statement regarding the role of autonomy in information systems and human/system interactions. It describes some of the domain applications of interest to The Boeing Company in which autonomy is an important component and points out how the acquisition, fusion and dissemination of information is a common underlying thread for each of them. It then discusses the role autonomy plays in that activity with particular emphasis on balancing system autonomy with human oversight and some of the important issues involved.
