Seminar: Cooperative Bayesian Intelligence for Aerospace Autonomy - Sept. 18

Sept. 11, 2020

As imperfectly designed agents in an uncertain world, autonomous systems will never work “out of the box” exactly as desired. By taking on tasks that push the technological limit, autonomous systems will encounter unexpected situations that go beyond their immediate capabilities. Autonomous systems must therefore be...

Solving AI’s (over)confidence problem

Jan. 7, 2020

University of Colorado Boulder researchers are developing artificial intelligence systems so computers can recognize and explain their own limitations to users. It takes on an important issue people face with each other every day. “We all have different competencies and we know our own limitations. If I'm asked to...

In push to deep space, human-robot teaming will be key

Aug. 30, 2019

NASA’s robotic space exploration missions are highly choreographed and rehearsed. Built around duplicate systems and repeated simulations, no detail is left unplanned for. The idea is to lower the risk to highly valuable and Irreplaceable equipment thousands of miles from physical support. But if humans are going to travel further...

CU Boulder partner adds unclassified development space to Remote Sensing Data Lab

Aug. 25, 2017

The Space and Missile Systems Center’s Remote Sensing Systems Directorate (RS) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to unveil the addition of an unclassified development environment to the existing Tools, Applications, and Processing (TAP) Lab. This open environment will allow more third-party developers to create capabilities using unclassified remote sensing data...
