Joint Human-Autonomy Modeling, Design, & Testing

March 4, 2021

Professor Cummings will talk about current projects underway in the Duke Humans and Autonomy Laboratory that focus on the development of joint human-autonomous system models, designs of systems to promote safe and effective interaction, and then how testing can be accomplished to determine areas of vulnerabilities and possible mitigations.
