Researcher: Professor Fabio Cuzzolin
All decisions arising from machines have levels of uncertainty. Current methods for dealing with uncertainty such as Bayesian statistics have severe limitations. Professor Fabio Cuzzolin explores how intelligent machines can negotiate a complex world, fraught with uncertainty; how to enable machines and autonomous machines to deal with situations they have never encountered in the safest possible way. Interacting naturally with human beings and their complex environments will only be possible if machines are able to put themselves in peoples’ shoes: to guess their goals, beliefs and intentions – in other words, to read our minds.
