KES Talks: AI in Cyber-Physical Systems (When can fully autonomous CPS in Society be achieved?)
When can fully autonomous CPS in Society be achieved?
Cyber-physical systems, CPS, like self-driving vehicles, e.g., cars, drones, and water vessels, are common in society, today. AI is used to enable the CPS to autonomously carry out tasks in society. But how autonomous are they and when can we fully trust autonomous CPS in dynamic environments? What is needed and what must be done before accepting CPS in our cities and societies? In this presentation, Anne Håkansson will shed a light to these questions from her research point of view.
Anne Håkansson is professor in computer science with a focus on Artificial Intelligence, UiT The Arctic University of Norway. She is also Professor II at NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, and docent in computer science at KTH Royal Institute of Technology Sweden.
Professor Håkansson has more than 25 years of experience in the AI field, giving her broad knowledge in several AI areas. Her research interests lie in decision-making and reasoning strategies and visualizing and explanation, in particular, negotiation between systems and agents. She has worked with KBS, meta-agents in MAS, and is currently working with CPS in the transportation sector, Industry 4.0, and Smart Cities and Societies with automated smart products and services.
Anne Håkansson is the chair of the Computational Analytics and Intelligence (CAI) research lab at UiT, Tromsø which includes several different groups as UiT, Norway. She is working in the gender balance project at NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, and KTH Live-In Lab project at KTH, Stockholm. She is the author and co-author of several books, proceedings, and international publications and serves in technical program committees of international top conferences IJCAI and AAAI as well as general track chair for KES international conferences. She is the editor-in-chief for NORA Machine Intelligence Journal, Norway. She is a frequently engaged speaker for Artificial Intelligence and popular science and has been an ambassador for Uppsala municipality, Sweden.
