  • Center of Autonomy and AI, Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar Series (Part 1)

    Wed, Apr 13, 2022 @ 02:00 PM - 02:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Prakash Sarathy, Northrop Grumman Global Products (1st Speaker)

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Increasing tempo and complexity of missions for aircraft and space vehicles has driven the design of such systems to higher levels of autonomous operations. Consequently, the challenges of ensuring a safe and secure operational regime have been rapidly escalating. While a number of techniques, new and old, are available to address different facets of these challenges, what seems to be missing is some cohesive approach or framework that can support the total design lifecycle while lowering the cost and risk of a successful design and deployment of such cyber-physical systems.

    This talk will focus on some of these challenges and where overlaps exist in the safety and security needs and in its eventual resolution within a software and hardware design. Some notable approaches and methodologies will be discussed briefly to highlight the potential of such convergence as well as some mention of current state-of-practice in software and hardware verification, validation, and accreditations (VV&A).

    Biography: Dr. Prakash Sarathy is the Chief Engineer for common mission processing subsystem for Northrop Grumman Global Products center. He earned his doctoral degree in Aerospace Engineering from Syracuse University. He has held positions as post-doctoral fellow, research engineer and tenured engineering faculty in his prior career. He has over 30 years of experience in the area of software applied to aerospace engineering, providing technical and project/program management and oversight for advanced technology programs requiring accelerated risk burn down and rapid maturation. His technical expertise areas include cooperative distributed architectures for multi-agent systems, cooperative decision frameworks, agent architectures for mission management, aggregate control of distributed assets, user interface design for aggregate level situational awareness. Insertion of neural networks, evolutionary computing and emergent behavior to decision making paradigms. This software engineering expertise coupled with his in-depth experience in linear and nonlinear dynamics of vehicle systems, applied to guidance, navigation and control of aircraft, spacecraft, and robots as well as of real-time and embedded simulations, high fidelity modeling, implementation, VV&A, formal methods, and testing, provide an excellent framework for the challenges of next generation autonomous aircraft. He has spearheaded an effort to assemble a feasible set of methodologies to establish bounded behavior assurance for advanced autonomous missions under contested operating conditions.

  • CS Colloquium: Bradley Hayes (University of Colorado Boulder) - Human-robot teaming is a lot less dangerous with communication: Improving Human-Robot Teaming Performance in Partially Observable Environments with Augmented Reality

    Wed, Apr 13, 2022 @ 04:30 PM - 05:50 PM

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Bradley Hayes, University of Colorado Boulder

    Talk Title: Human-robot teaming is a lot less dangerous with communication: Improving Human-Robot Teaming Performance in Partially Observable Environments with Augmented Reality

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Clear and frequent communication is a foundational aspect of collaboration. Effective communication not only enables and sustains the shared situational awareness necessary for adaptation and coordination during human-robot teaming, but is often a requirement given the opaque nature of decision-making in autonomous systems. In this talk I will share some of our recent work using augmented reality as a mode of visual communication to improve both human and robot safety and capability when working together, introducing insights into human behavior and compliance in safety-critical situations as well as novel algorithms for autonomous communication and collaboration in partially observable environments. The talk will conclude with a presentation of our ongoing work at the intersection of fast constrained motion planning for sequential manifold planning problems and augmented reality-assisted learning from demonstration.

    Prof. Bradley Hayes will give his talk in person at GFS 106 and we will also host the talk over Zoom.

    https://usc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_HgvCIbb7TDS6aOU1ksSI0A

    After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Bradley Hayes is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he runs the Collaborative AI and Robotics (CAIRO) Lab and serves as co-director of the university's Autonomous Systems Interdisciplinary Research Theme. Brad's research develops techniques to create and validate autonomous systems that learn from, teach, and collaborate with humans to improve efficiency, safety, and capability at scale. His work primarily leverages novel approaches at the intersection of human-robot interaction and explainable artificial intelligence, providing autonomous systems with the ability to generalize skills with limited risk, to act safely and productively around humans, and to make human-autonomy teams more powerful than the sums of their parts. His continual efforts to systematically put humans and autonomous systems into often entertaining and occasionally productive situations has been featured by TEDx, Popular Science, Wired, and MIT Technology review, and has been recognized with best paper nominations from HRI, AAMAS, and RO-MAN. Brad also serves as CTO at Circadence, building high-fidelity simulation, test, and evaluation environments for cyber-physical systems at nation-state scale.
