Human Performance - Cognitive gym - Cognitive Fitness Framework trainable attributes assessment (2020 - 2021)$118,210
Description
We propose developments that will achieve improvements in the efficacy and reliability of measurement of cognitive fitness constructs related to cognitive control that are critical to stimulating the design and development of environments and protocols to improve cognitive fitness and to developing fieldable technologies to protect and enhance cognitive performance. We will develop gamified test of cognitive control integrating 7 different tasks (2-back, stop-signal, Simon, Flanker, Task Switching, Decision-Bias and Multitasking), benchmark it against traditional laboratory versions of these tasks and brief cognitive clinical assessment as well examining its relationship to a psychometric measure of real-world impulse control. We will also examine the effects on cognitive fitness of extended practice with the game and also use the large associated data set to assess how measure reliability changes with number of trials performed.

Future Seas: Transforming Australia into a "Marine Knowledge Nation' (2019)$50,000
Description
We live in an age of staggering data availability, yet people around the world are becoming increasingly skeptical of science. Moreover, demands for natural resources continue to escalate and we need to manage these demands in the face of unprecedented environmental changes. Major transformations are needed to create a sustainable future for our state, region, country and the planet. A key challenge for environmental sustainability is identifying how to encourage the uptake of behaviors at individual, local and global scales - that will leverage greater environmental benefit.This proposal will examine:1.What are the key leverage points and associated processes for achieving an engaged and scientifically literate society, to underpin effective management of Australias marine resources?, and2.How can we adapt models of change that have successfully led to positive environmental behavior and stewardship in the recent past?

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) WorkSmart program: A novel online program to assist people living with MS in the workforce (2018 - 2020)$300,000
Description
Nearly half ($494M) of the total cost of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) ($1.04 billion a year) in Australia is due to sickness absence and early retirement. A large societal cost saving can be made by assisting people with MS to maintain their employment and reduce difficulties associated with their employment. Further, this will have financial benefits for people with MS, as well as improve their overall quality of life. Despite a clear need, there are currently no self-management interventions specifically for people with MS in the workforce. In this project we propose to complete the development and undertake a feasibility study of the MS WorkSmart Program. MS WorkSmart is an online cognitive behaviour therapy self-management program with telephone support accessible on different devices. MS WorkSmart guides a person with MS through six modules over 13-15 weeks, using quizzes, videos and homework activities to assist the learning of strategies that can be applied to their working and daily lives for optimal MS management. The program is being developed together with people with MS and other stakeholders using focus groups and iterative feedback. It is underpinned by cognitive behavioural theory, is embedded in the literature and specifically designed for people with MS who are in the workforce. People will be assisted with telephone-delivered psychological support.

Automation, Trust, and Workload: UTAS / CSIRO / UoSA Collaborative Research Project (2017 - 2019)$212,982
Description
Automation, and autonomous systems, are playing an increasing role in every-day life. Whereas the previous generation of autonomous technology had its impact largely in industrial spaces, (e.g. automotive factory robots), current advances are bringing such systems into the homes, workplaces, and automobiles of todays citizens. A key factor here is the increased proximity to human operators and bystanders. This project aims to develop a useful model for making predictive analyses based on these three factors, Automation, Trust, and Workload.The work will focus on both traditional methods of workload estimation (i.e. subjective questionnaire) and novel methodology using psychophysiological methodology to measure workload in a way that does not interrupt critical task flow, as is the case with traditional methodology. Such methodologies include, but are not limited to: Pupillometry (using fluctuations in pupil diameter to indicate cognitive load, e.g. (Duenser, Lochner, Engelke, & Rozado, 2015); electro-dermal activity (using skin conductivity to infer cognitive load, e.g. (Lochner, Duenser, Lutzhoft, Brooks, & Rozado, 2016); IR camera-based pulse detection (using video imagery to detect pulse rate, e.g. (Stemberger, Allison, & Schnell, 2010). It is our goal to develop and validate a hybrid methodology for assessing workload in critical task environments, where standard interruptive measurement techniques are not appropriate due to various considerations including safety, efficiency, and efficacy. This framework is not limited to assessing physical automation (e.g. self driving cars, autonomous robotics), but also includes automation within a user-experience framework, considering automated web-based information systems.The second key factor (the first being the level of autonomy) in the model under development is the individuals level of trust in the automated system. Recent research on human interactions with autonomous systems (e.g., Freedy, DeVisser, Weltman, & Coeyman, 2007; Lee & See, 2004) indicates that the level of trust in the system affects the success of the interaction on a number of levels, and should therefore be taken into account as a major factor in the design process. The current project contributors believe that a relation between trust, autonomy, and workload is intrinsic to the human-machine system, and that the development of a model surrounding these influences will inform the successful future development of such systems. This research sits at the nexus of three academic disciplines, namely computer science, psychology, and engineering. The development of systems that operate with variable levels of human engagement, requires an explicit understanding of the human capacity for work, the strengths and limitations of the technology, and a way to predict when errors will occur. The proposed project structure will support this multidisciplinary work by establishing the appropriate interdepartmental connections.

Recovery Buddy (2015)$27,424
Description
The aim of this project is to develop, implement, and evaluate a mobile phone application (Recovery Buddy), an interactive tool to support clients during the period following substance use treatment, when the risk for relapse is high. The Bridge Program (Salvation Army) is a not-for-profit organisation offering an intensive 8-week substance use treatment program. Post-program aftercare lasts up to 12-months and includes weekly/fortnightly counselling sessions. During the 8-week program, clients complete problem solving exercises and develop personalised coping plans and relapse prevention skills which they are encouraged to use during aftercare. However, client feedback suggests they may not access their coping plans when needed and may struggle to maintain their relapse prevention skills. It is a significant challenge to engage clients during the aftercare period and despite best efforts, around 60% of clients will relapse within the first 12 months of treatment. Recovery Buddy will allow clients to access their personally tailored exercises directly from their mobile phone whenever they need. Clients may choose to access exercises directly or may be directed to exercises based on how they are feeling or based on answers to regular surveys on substance use, mental health, and motivation. For example, a client indicating they are having a craving would be guided through an exercise aimed at tolerating cravings.
