ABSTRACT Effective collaboration between humans and agents depends on humans maintaining an appropriate understanding of and calibrated trust in the judgment of their agent counterparts. The Situation Awareness-based Agent Transparency (SAT) model was proposed to support human awareness in human–agent teams. As agents transition from tools to artificial teammates, an expansion of the model is necessary to support teamwork paradigms, which require bidirectional transparency. We propose that an… 
Situation awareness-based agent transparency for human-autonomy teaming effectiveness
We developed the Situation awareness-based Agent Transparency (SAT) model to support human operators’ situation awareness of the mission environment through teaming with intelligent agents. The model
Shared Mental Models as a Way of Managing Transparency in Complex Human-Autonomy Teaming
TLDR
It is proposed that one such strategy could be the adjustment of the level of abstraction of the shared mental model adopted by the team as the common ground for communication so as to keep the amount of information that is exchanged manageable within human cognitive limitations.
Robot Transparency and Team Orientation Effects on Human–Robot Teaming
TLDR
The results showed both benefits and limitations of increased transparency indicating the importance of careful implementation of transparency methods and team orientation manipulation showed to be ineffective (and potentially detrimental) indicating that caution needs to be exercised when implementing elements intended to improve group cohesion and team inclusiveness.
Trust Measurement in Human-Autonomy Teams: Development of a Conceptual Toolkit
The rise in artificial intelligence capabilities in autonomy-enabled systems and robotics has pushed research to address the unique nature of human-autonomy team collaboration. The goal of these
Effects of agent transparency and communication framing on human-agent teaming
TLDR
Results showed that critical framing improved operator's perception and trust of the agent regardless of theAgent transparency level, and findings suggest that the effects of framing are especially pronounced in low transparency applications.
Exploring the Impact of Coordination in Human–Agent Teams
TLDR
This paper characterizes coordination on the axes of types, content, and cost and examines the mechanisms, moderators, and models employed within human–agent teams to illuminate potential AA design improvements to support coordination.
Experimental Validation of Pilot Situation Awareness Enhancement Through Transparency Design of a Scalable Mixed-Initiative Mission Planner
TLDR
This study adopted the transparency strategies proposed by the SA-based Agent Transparency (SAT) model to improve the human operator's perception, comprehension, and projection of the agent’s interventions in human-agent mixed-initiative mission planning.
Teammates Instead of Tools: The Impacts of Level of Autonomy on Mission Performance and Human–Agent Teaming Dynamics in Multi-Agent Distributed Teams
Human–agent teaming (HAT) is becoming more commonplace across industry, military, and consumer settings. Agents are becoming more advanced, more integrated, and more responsible for tasks previously
