Reliable AI and robotic systems, able to operate in dynamic and critical scenarios
The activity focuses on frontier aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and on the ability of artificial agents (e.g. robots) to develop intelligent behaviours as emerging from the interactions with the environment, through the body and the sensory-motor system of the agent itself (Embodied Intelligence).
Within the TAEI FoReLab, a widespread, reliable and integrated use of both are pursued and promoted.
The research includes the design of behaviours of agents keeping into consideration the environment and the constraints in terms of body, perception, motor and brain systems to intelligently operate in (at least partially) unknown, not structured, dynamical and not predictable scenarios (e.g. multi domain - air-ground-water - search and rescue or environmental monitoring).
Since humans’ trust in a technology strongly relies on understanding how it works, particular attention is given to the development of algorithms for learning explainable models, also through distributed and privacy-preserving approaches (Human-centered Trustworthy AI).
