Abstract

Human performance in demanding tasks and related computer-based support is the focus of research in a great amount of studies in the recent decennia. This area of research receives much attention because the consequences of human mistakes in critical tasks are grave. With the development of cognitive modelling techniques, new possibilities of flexible computer-based support arise. In this work an integrative agent model for adaptive human-aware information presentation is introduced. Within the agent model, meant to support humans in demanding tasks, a domain model is integrated which consists of a dynamical model for human functioning states, and a dynamical model determining the effects of information presentation. The integrative agent model applies model-based reasoning methods to the domain model to analyse the functioning state of the human and to determine how to adapt the presentation of information to this state. Simulation results show that the model in general exhibits correct behaviour. In the end, some remarks about the possible modifications and applications of the model along with suggestions for future studies are discussed.
