TITLE: Towards Trusting Autonomous Systems
SPEAKER: Michael Winikoff, Department of Information Science
Room G34, Owheo Building, 1:00 pm, Friday 15 September
Autonomous systems are rapidly transitioning from labs into our lives. A crucial question concerns trust: in what situations will we (appropriately) trust such systems? This paper proposes three necessary prerequisites for trust. The three prerequisites are defined, motivated, and related to each other. We then consider how to realise the prerequisites. This paper aims to articulate a research agenda, and although it provides suggestions for approaches to take and directions for future work, it contains more questions than answers.
