Prof. Selva awarded a SERC Incubation grant

The Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) has awarded Prof. Selva an Incubation grant to study how cognitive assistants can foster learning in systems engineering. Prior research in our lab has shown promise for cognitive assistants to improve performance in systems engineering tasks. However, we have also observed that using cognitive assistants may lead to reduced […]
