We consider environments where a set of human workers needs to handle a large set of tasks while interacting with human users. The arriving tasks vary: they may differ in their urgency, their difficulty and the required knowledge and time duration in which to perform them. Our goal is to decrease the number of workers, which we refer to as operators that are handling the tasks while increasing the users’ satisfaction. We present automated intelligent agents that will work together with the human operators in order to improve the overall performance of such systems and increase both operators' and users’ satisfaction. Examples include: home hospitalization environment where remote specialists will instruct and supervise treatments that are carried out at the patients' homes; operators that tele-operate autonomous vehicles when human intervention is needed and bankers that provide online service to customers. The automated agents could support the operators: the machine learning-based agent follows the operator’s work and makes recommendations, helping him interact proficiently with the users. The agents can also learn from the operators and eventually replace the operators in many of their tasks.
