The Human Factor

Human Factors is the understanding of ‘the human in the loop’. It’s about how people behave and interact both with technology and each other, and it’s something that has become fundamental to safety across aviation and a host of other industries.

But what really is Human Factors? Where did it come from and why is it become so integral? In this month’s Altitude, we’ll be digging into the history, the practical applications and the challenges posed by the rise of things like AI and automation.

In this episode, Barry Kirby, President of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors and NATS’ own Human Factors Director Nuno Cebola have a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion.
