Leading and following can emerge naturally in human teams. However, such roles are usually predefined in human-robot teams due to the difficulty of scalably learning and adapting to each agent’s roles. Our goal is to enable a robot to learn how ... (click for more)
ACAS sXu is a protocol for collision avoidance for small drones. In this project we aim to do a formal robustness analysis of a specific implementation of sXu being used by GE. This implementation uses a deep neural network (DNN). The goal is to show ... (click for more)
The control of unmanned aircraft systems must be rigorously tested and verified to ensure their correct functioning and airworthiness. Incorporating components that use novel techniques such as deep learning can pose a significant challenge ... (click for more)
Adaptive stress testing (AST) is an approach for validating safety-critical autonomous control systems such as self driving cars and unmanned aircraft. The approach involves searching for the most likely failure scenarios according to some measure ... (click for more)
Using precise mathematical modeling to ensure the safety, security, and robustness of conventional software and hardware systems.
Designing systems that intelligently balance learning under uncertainty and acting safety.
Understanding safety in the context of fairness, accountability, and explainability for autonomous and intelligent systems.
