MIT News at Noon with Missy Cummings

Missy Cummings, associate professor of aeronautics and astronautics and engineering systems at MIT, delivers her "News at Noon" talk at the MIT Museum. The event is co-sponsored by the MIT News Office and the Museum, and features researchers discussing their recently promoted work.

On Nov. 16, Cummings discussed how boredom plays a major role in a drone-operators ability to do their job. Her study found that UAV operators tend to preform better with a little distraction. Presenters for "News at Noon" are announced each week following an appearance in MIT News.
