11.10 Trust between Autonomous Technical Systems (TrusTec)

          University of Regina

Research

The ultimate goal for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics is to enable technical systems to adapt themselves, learn from their environment, and take decisions in concordance with specific situations, without human involvement. Specifically, cooperation between these intelligent technical systems is considered as a key factor towards such a challenge. This project aims to enhance an autonomous system to take decisions, which are influenced by a trust component between individual agents. The goal of the project is three-fold. Firstly, investigate and formalize the integration of a computational trust model in sophisticated decision making systems. Secondly, tune the parameters of the trust model by adopting the concept of system customization. For this purpose, we propose to employ reinforcement learning. Finally, explore the parameter space for the design, analysis, and deployment of interactive learning models, which is crucial for to allow for efficient learning.
