Human Factors News Monthly Roundup (July, 2022) 

Welcome to the Human Factors Cast Monthly News Roundup, a monthly roundup of all news related to Human Factors, Psychology, Design, and Technology as it relates to humans. These stories have been talked about on Human Factors Cast's weekly podcast or have been identified in our weekly news roundups.  Want this in your RSS/Feed reader? Grab our RSS Feed here.

This month, we saw many stories come across our desk about Human-AI-Robot teaming, as well as "Communications," which honestly, is a good catch-all category for how we communicate, and disseminate science literacy. We also caught up on some of our HF Healthcare symposium coverage! Yes, we know the physical meeting happened back in March, but the virtual event happened in June! We took our time looking at some of the themes coming out of this year's conference and had a chat with one of the organizers (see below). Let's get into this beefy recap:! But before we do: 

Consider joining us on Discord or on any of our social media communities (LinkedInFacebookTwitterInstagram) to continue the conversation with the hosts, and an audience of worldwide Human Factors and UX professionals!

International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Healthcare Conference Coverage

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Joe Keebler (Chair of the symposium) to chat about this year's event(s), and we deviated from our traditional conference coverage format by expanding on it and talking about the future of Human Factors in Healthcare.  We also had several members of our Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab attend the event and present their observations.
