Cognitive Engineering in Complex Dynamic Worlds addresses the problem of how to deploy the power available through a wide range of developments in computing technology to assist human performance. These issues are confronted in complex systems where problem solving involves changing patterns of evidence, multiple failures, and risky outcomes. The object is to provide the basis for principle driven develpoments of intelligent and effective decision support. This will have important repercussions for the application of computing technology in complex and safety-critical environments. Computer reliability must be enhanced so that complex systems can respond effectively in accident conditions.
This volume reflects international collaboration in cognitive engineering, tackling some of the area's fundamental questions. It will be of interest to all concerned with research and advanced study at the intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. This book also presents the results that will be of great significance for those working on industrial computing applications.

I would recommend this book to anyone planing to build an expert system and those unfamiliar with human factors approaches to system design....It insightfully points out just where automated systems go wrong and what the strengths and weaknessesof human decision making are, and can therefore serve as a guide to constructing better systems for man-machine problem solving systems.
