A novel approach to measure the self-generated complexity of human-machine interaction is presented. A complexity measure that relies solely on information-theoretic quantities is defined. An efficient estimation procedure for the complexity measure is introduced. The theoretical framework is validated by a study of human interaction with electronic map displays. Thirty experienced master mariners participated. The task was to search for multiple vessel symbols under time pressure. Samples from… CONTINUE READING
