According to cognitive systems engineering literature, human beings view automated systems as error-resistant. In other words, we trust a computer’s answers, even if evidence suggests that we should doubt them. Our automation bias was on full display on Monday night when a New York man drove onto railroad tracks because his GPS told him to do so. Luckily, the man and his passengers escaped injury before the train hit his car. A Metro-North spokesperson told reporters: “You don’t turn onto train tracks even if there are little voices in your head telling you to do so. If the GPS told you to drive off a cliff, would you drive off a cliff?” If this train incident and another like it nine months ago provide any guidance, the answer may tragically be yes.
