Towards Trustworthy Man-Machine Synchronization
Hyperscanning is a method by which multiple individuals can interact with one another while their brains are simultaneously scanned. Interpersonal brain activity synchronization has found to be indicative for levels of collaboration, trust, coordination and leadership among team members. Here it is suggested that systems that team with humans need to provoke specific responses as humans do to synchronize. Entities ‘in sync’ perform better. Therefore, understanding social interactions between humans in terms of synchronization may be the prerequisite for developing and enhancing true trustworthy man-machine teaming.
