Performance degradation due to interruptions is a critical issue, particularly when people are supervising highly autonomous systems in time and safety critical environments. Previous research in the development of automated support to help supervisory control operators resume task activities after an interruption has had limited success. This paper(More)
In the context of missions accomplished jointly by an artificial agent and a human agent, we focus on a controller of the authority dynamics based on a dependence graph of resources that can be controlled by both agents. The controller is designed to adapt the behaviours of the artificial agent or of the human agent in case of an authority conflict(More)
The focus of any health care provider, such as a hospital, is on assessing and improving the well-being of the people in the system's target area, and it is this focus that differentiates health care providers from other enterprises.

In this paper, we propose an engineering approach to software engineering called "Unified Software Method" (USM). The goal pursued through this work in progress is to offer complete traceability between software requirements and the resulting software application for any kind of application and as a result, establish accountability of a practitioner's work.(More)
