An experimental study of interpreter proficiency as a criterion for image interpretation personnel assignments.
Schwabe, William Lawrence
MetadataShow full item record
Methods of improving image interpretation system output through use of interpreter proficiency as a criterion for making interpreter personnel assignments were investigated. An experiment was conducted to determine if either of two personnel assignment methods using interpreter proficiency as the assignment criterion would yield significantly improved team performance. No significant difference in performance due to either of the methods tested was found. A second experiment was conducted to determine if assigning the more difficult imagery to the more proficient interpreter would result in higher team performance than random assignment of imagery to team members. Analysis indicated no significant differences in interpreter performance due to either of the methods tested. The image interpreter personnel assignment problem was formulated as a linear integer program.
