AI and Human Factors'

Introduction In this post, I will give a brief overview of how the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human Factors (HF) overlap along with the ways HF can be used to improve and guide the development and applications of AI. The key area where they interact with each other in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).   AI is increasingly supporting high-consequence human decisions f rom healthcare to criminal justice which depending on how particular AI systems were trained or designed through Machine Learning (ML) can have serious consequences. These are often in the form of bias. HF has the  potential to identify and reduce instances of these bias and related problems.  Applying Human Factors to AI Increasing machine, intelligence leads to a shift from a mere, interactive to a much more complex cooperative human-machine, relation requiring, a multidisciplinary development, approach were AI frame opportunities and challenges for user interface design.  Reducing bias' t
