About the Webinar
What would it take for you to give up control…of your car, your schedule, your investments…?
Autonomous systems are like teenagers. The decision to trust one to complete a task without strict supervision depends on the individual and the task. Performance and trust are variables on spectra. As with teens, some autonomous systems will be ready before we are ready to trust them, and some will take a little longer.
As we get comfortable with delegating routine domestic tasks to home robots and prepare for a world with self-driving cars and beyond, it is important to understand the opportunities and limits for autonomous systems. Participants in this webinar will learn about the technologies that enable autonomous systems, and how to critically assess design constraints for independent and collaborating autonomous solutions.
