Human, Artificial Intelligence, and Robot Teaming
Tomorrow’s coworkers will look very different from today’s
Humans are increasingly working together with synthetic agents, both robotic and software-based, to carry out essential national security functions. The benefits of such teams are far-reaching: decreased risk for the humans and a greater capacity to process information and adapt to dynamic, quickly-changing environments. But like any team, for the group to function optimally there must be a baseline of trust, an understanding of roles and a shared commitment to achieving an outcome.
We are identifying how best to work with synthetic agents
The Center for Human, Artificial Intelligence, and Robot Teaming (CHART) is a multidisciplinary center leading the charge to develop methods to assemble the most effective human-synthetic agent teams in support of national security. We develop and deploy technologies, tools and best practices for the composition, training, management and evaluation of human, AI and robot teams working together in support of national security. The center also conducts research on potential ethical and legal issues likely to arise as agents and robots are assigned increasing autonomy.
GSI is researching how heterogeneous teams of humans and synthetic agents can best operate in an array of situations and applications, including:
- Search and rescue missions.
- Teaming in space operations.
- Collaborative planning.
- Driverless vehicles and human drivers.
- Distributed team training with virtual teammates.
- Logistics Defense operations.
- Autonomous and remotely-piloted ground and air vehicles.
