pp: 52-64
ABSTRACT
One of Bolt Beranek and Newman?s main areas of interest is information sciences and systems. The primary focus here is on theoretical and applied work on problems involving humans in the information processing and control loop of control systems. Discussions cover the evolution and outcome of key technical developments, people involved, and the role of BBN?s environment-computational, organizational, and human.
