Abstract : The introduction of decision aids and knowledge-based expert systems incurs resistance when non-congenial styles of problem solving are imposed on users. On-going research addresses the design of computer-based display and analysis systems which cater flexibly to personal styles while providing non-obtrusive safe-guards against potential errors and biases. Capabilities which permit monitoring of the user's task by the computer and of the computer by the user have been explored. (Author)
