Innovation Week

This session is part of something remarkable: a month-long celebration of innovative energy designed to educate, engage, and inspire. Once you enroll in this session, remember to check out your dashboard to see your personal learning path. We can't wait to innovate with you!

Human-AI-Robot Teaming

Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are already in use in many areas of our everyday lives, and our utilization of them will only grow in the future. How can humans learn to better trust and collaborate with machines and the algorithms that drive them, and vice-versa? How can they work together as teammates, accomplishing tasks that each could never complete separately? How can we make the world better together (and avoid the robot apocalypse while we’re at it)? Drs. Nancy Cooke and Robert Gutzwiller, faculty in ASU’s Human Systems Engineering program (in which psychology is applied to engineering in order to make it better and more user-friendly for humans) will discuss human factors in their current research projects and social intelligence for AI, and demonstrate how human subjects experiments in a virtual testbed in Minecraft are working toward improving human-AI teaming and keeping soldiers safer in combat.
