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...
