Research Panel Presentations and Discussion

9:55 a.m. Panel 1: Forecasting and Anticipatory Thinking
This panel will discuss methods of improving the accuracy of human forecasts from large, dispersed crowds. In addition, it will cover research on anticipatory thinking or mental simulations, planning, and preparing for events. What differentiates experts from novices in both of these domains? What aspects of these skills can be trained? How can people be prepared to forecast and think about a broad range of possible futures, especially low probability, high impact events?
How is research in this area likely to progress in the near future? What research questions need to be addressed?
What new methodologies and tools are available?
Moderator: Sallie Keller, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Barbara Mellers, University of Pennsylvania
Title: Returns to precision
Gary Klein, MacroCognition LLC
Title: Challenges for engaging in anticipatory thinking
Alyson Wilson, North Carolina State University
Title: Prediction and anticipatory thinking
10:45 a.m. Discussion and Q&A
Moderators, Presenters, and Members of the Committee on a Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for Applications to National Security
11:45 a.m. LUNCH
12:45 p.m. Panel 2: Trust
This panel will consider the state of the science on trust in three respects: What is known about an individual’s level of trust with respect to data and sources; with respect to automated analyses—output of machines and models; and with respect to people.

2:30 p.m. BREAK
2:45 p.m. Panel 3: Perceptual and cognitive constraints on and aids for analysis and presentation
This panel will consider the state of the science on perception and cognition as it applies toward how individuals make sense of information. How do they deal with massive amounts or high dimensional data? What techniques can be used to reduce or analyze data to information that can be used for anomaly detection or decision making? What is known about presentation to make information more memorable? Do certain forms of presentations play into people’s biases?

Beginning in October 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a set of workshops designed to gather information for the Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for Applications to National Security. The fourth workshop focused on the science of cognition and perception, and this publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from this workshop.
