Intelligent Autonomous Systems

This talk describes the current research path towards intelligent, semi-autonomous systems, where both humans and automation tightly interact, and together, accomplish tasks such as searching for survivors of a hurricane using a team of UAVs with sensors with highly efficient interaction. This talk is describes the current state of the art in 1) intelligent robotic (only) systems, 2) modeling human decisions and 3) semi-autonomous systems, with a focus on information exchange, and command and control.

Mark Campbell is the S.C. Thomas Sze Director of the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University.
