About the Presentation:

Systems engineering is developing everywhere in industry, but human issues incrementally emerge. In particular, this systemic technology-centered approach to engineering rigidifies organizations and lead to surprises. People involved are not fully aware of what is going on.
This presentation identifies situation awareness and authority issues in complex systems design and management, and discusses possible solutions. It more specifically focuses on an Orchestra model of socio-technical systems.

About The Speaker:

Guy A. Boy, Ph.D., is University Professor and Director of the Human-Centered Design Institute and Ph.D. & Master’s Programs at the Florida Institute of Technology, IPA Chief Scientist for Human-Centered Design at NASA Kennedy Space Center and a Senior Research Scientist at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). He is member of the Scientific Committee of the SESAR program (Single European Sky for Air Traffic Management Research). He was the Chair of the 2012 ISU (International Space University) SSP (Space Studies Program) FIT/NASA-KSC local organizing committee. He is Adjunct Professor at the École Polytechnique in Paris (Comasic Master). He was the President and Chief Scientist of the European Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Engineering (EURISCO). He co-founded EURISCO in 1992, and managed it since its creation to its closing in 2008. Engineer and cognitive scientist, he received his Doctorate in 1980 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ISAE-SUPAERO: The French Aerospace Institute of Technology), his Professorship Habilitation (HDR) from Pierre and Marie Curie’s University (Paris VI), and his Full Professorship Qualifications in Computer Science and Psychology. Boy actively participated to the introduction of cognitive engineering in France and its development worldwide. He was the co-founder in 2004 of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique (ENSC),
a cognitive engineering program at the University of Bordeaux. He is the editor the French handbook of cognitive engineering, and the Handbook of Human-Machine Interaction (Ashgate, UK) in 2011. His most recent book is Orchestrating Human-Centered Design (Springer, UK, 2013). Elected Fellow of the Air and Space Academy in 2006, he is a senior member of the ACM
(Executive Vice-Chair of ACM-SIGCHI from 1995 to 1999) and INCOSE.
