A paper with the title "Coordinating Agents: Promoting Shared Situational Awareness in Collaborative Sensemaking" by Ming-Tung Hong, Jesse Josua Benjamin and Claudia Müller-Birn was accepted at the ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW) 2018.
The conference will take place in New York City's Hudson River (Jersey City), November 3-7, 2018.
Recent research suggests that in visual analytics tasks, collaborative sensemaking relies on successful collaboration between humans and software agents. To advance the understanding of such collaboration, we consider that both, the human and the software agent, possess a form of situational awareness which, when coordinated, can enrich the collaborative sensemaking process. We propose a conceptual model for a coordinating agent that dynamically initiates interruptions, influenced by the analytic activities of humans. We provide possible designs for four coordinating strategies. In closing, we discuss plans for implementation, and how future studies can contribute to wider discourses.
