What will the Robot do Next?
October 2017 • Presentation
Presentation on research to build algorithms that allow robots to explain their behaviors to users and adapt their behavior during execution to enable users to accurately predict what they will do next
Software Engineering Institute
The DoD, Federal agencies, and industry are increasingly using robots in important tasks such as search and rescue operations. However, because robot behaviors can be hard to distinguish and understand, users mistrust and often abandon these very useful tools. In these projects, we are developing algorithms for robots to
- automatically explain their behaviors to users to improve users’ trust and assurance of them
- proactively adapt their behavior during execution to enable users to accurately predict what the robot will do next
