Training Novices: The Role of Human-AI Collaboration and Knowledge Transfer

  title={Training Novices: The Role of Human-AI Collaboration and Knowledge Transfer},
  author={Philipp Spitzer and Niklas K{\"u}hl and Marc Goutier},
Across a multitude of work environments, expert knowledge is imperative for humans to conduct tasks with high performance and ensure business success. These humans possess task-specific expert knowledge (TSEK) and hence, represent subject matter experts (SMEs).
