Human-in-the-Loop Autonomy

September 2013 Podcast
James Edmonson Interviewer Suzanne Garcia-Miller

In this episode, James Edmondson discusses his research on autonomous systems, specifically robotic systems and autonomous systems for robotic systems.

“We focus on partial human-in-the-loop autonomy...No one wants a system that has no ability for a human to feedback into the system. You always want to have the ability to at least look into what it's deciding.”
