A superfunction is defined as a conceptual construct possessing higher order attributes that directly target key performance areas. Superfunctions typically integrate two or more traditional functions such that a set of correlated activity clusters are able to be performed without undue difficulty to achieve mission success.
Intelligent Systems and the Age of the Superfunction explores how the superfunction combines attributes that are organized in a powerful analytic framework to significantly improve mission success while simultaneously reducing complexity and excessively high workloads. Based on the real-world expertise of retired U.S. Naval aviator, author, speaker, and expert in critical thinking and advanced station design, Captain Kevin M. Smith, this video lecture is an essential educational resource for engineers, researchers, and graduate-level students.
