Abstract: Autonomous systems, such as self-driving cars, are becoming tangible technologies that will soon impact the human experience. However, the desirable impacts of autonomy are only achievable if the underlying algorithms can handle the unique challenges humans present: People tend to defy expected behaviors and do not conform to many of the standard assumptions made in robotics. To design safe, trustworthy autonomy, we must transform how intelligent systems interact, influence, and predict human agents. 

 

Bio: Katie Driggs-Campbell is an assistant professor in the ECE department at ILLINOIS. Prior, she was a postdoc in the Stanford Intelligent Systems Laboratory. She earned her B.S.E. with honors from Arizona State University, and her MS in 2015 and PhD in 2017 in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley. Her lab works on human-centered autonomy, focusing on the integration of autonomy into human dominated fields, merging ideas robotics, learning, transportation, and control.
