Human Factors Weekly News

Welcome to the Human Factors Cast Weekly News Roundup, a weekly roundup of all news related to Human Factors, Psychology, Design, and Technology as it relates to humans. These stories are selected as potential topics for Human Factors Cast'sweekly podcast.  Want this in your RSS/Feed reader? Grab our RSS Feed here.

We're back again from our short week off. It looks like while we were gone, a lot happened! From autonomous vehicles standards, to trusting consumer reviews, all the way to mental health in extreme isolation. There's a multitude of stories for anyone this week, let's dive in. 

(Editor's Note: Yes, we did get cheeky by inserting our worst review we've received into the thumbnail of this image. Do you trust it? Is it a top review? Let's test out one of the top news stories this week.)

Our Top News Stories

These consist of news stories that we feel have enough substance to them to justify a 20-30 minute segment on the podcast. OurPatreonsdecide which topics we discuss on the show from these types of news stories.

Human Factors News

These consist of news stories that have a human factors application, but may just be a brief one-liner (e.g. not a whole lot to talk about but cool enough for us to share).

If you haven't already, join us on Discord or on any of our social media communities (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to continue the conversation about these, and many other topics!
