To Automate or To Augment Humans? That is the Question for AI, and The Answer Depends on Users’ Requirements

The growing influence of AI brings benefits and risks. Our research explores how human-centred AI balances automation and human control in website usability evaluation. It shows how AI streamlines the detection of critical usability issues while augmented approaches also uncover less severe issues.
