Trustworthy Autonomy: Algorithms for Human-Robot Systems

Katherine Driggs-Campbell
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Autonomous systems, such as self-driving cars, are becoming tangible technologies that will soon impact the human experience. However, the desirable impacts of autonomy are only achievable if the underlying algorithms can handle the unique challenges humans present: People tend to defy expected behaviors and do not conform to many of the standard assumptions made in robotics. To design safe, trustworthy autonomy, we must transform how intelligent systems interact, influence, and predict human agents. In this talk, I'll present on robust driver modeling methodologies for semi- and fully autonomous vehicle decision making and control and present new methods for validating stochastic systems.
