Event | ISTAS 2016
For decades we have been promised that Autonomous Systems are "just around the corner" – yet they are not here yet!
Is it because they aren't resilient enough, aren't smart enough, people don't trust them, or they don't possess the right kind of 'intelligence'?
This symposium considered 'surviving the unpredicted' as a kind of 'Turing test' for new approaches to Trusted Autonomous Systems and their research and development.
ISTAS 2016 aimed to bring world-leading scientists, pioneering academics, industry experts, researchers and students to an interactive forum to inspire and seed collaborative research. The symposium will feature world-class international and national keynote speakers, including Josh Bongard from the University of Vermont. Attendance is by invitation only under the support of the Defence Science and Technology Group and Industry Sponsors.
