Autonomous Robots and Learning in Human-AI Interaction
Manuela Veloso leads the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, driving research focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. Veloso and her students research on autonomous robots, in particular mobile service robots that navigate multi-floor buildings and interact with humans and learn from their experience. Veloso will present work on the concrete CoBot service robots that autonomously navigate in the university office buildings, being able to integrate the understanding of sensory data, decision making, and actuation. In addition to responding to pick-up-and-delivery task requests from humans, the CoBot robots interact with humans in a symbiotic autonomy way, in which they overcome their limitations by asking for help from humans. Furthermore they are able to explain their autonomous experience in response to human queries. Veloso will present her work as a new challenging human-AI interaction, which can be of relevance in a wide variety of domains.

15 Questions in 15 minutes: Ask me anything about AI
What is our ethical responsibility when it comes to digital privacy? Failure to innovate responsibly creates peril not only for shareholders and management, but also for society. Responsible technologists and responsible business leaders must practice responsible innovation. In order to accomplish this, it is essential that they are sensitized to the broader impacts of their decisions to consider how new technologies are deployed. The same types of predictive analytics that were deployed on Facebook to sway election sentiment have also been used to help distribute medical aid – and provide for financial inclusion. Join David Shrier, Oxford & MIT futurist and CEO of Distilled Analytics, for an interactive AMA-style session to delve into the ethical responsibilities around digital privacy, Facebook, GDPR, and more.
