From HAL9000 to Pal9000: Collaboration Workshop
Assuring our Autonomous Systems of the Future

  • Limited to 75 participants, required questionnaire sent once registration confirmed

Workshop Overview:
In an increasingly complex world of technical innovation, integration, and complexity, finding consensus around ‘assurance’ can be overwhelming, and finding the paths to achieving it can seem downright impossible. The complexity of assuring our autonomous technology is immense, as autonomous systems span across domains, expertise, companies and communities. Every stakeholder in our society – designers, builders, legislators, users, and more – each have a vested interest in the technology we interact with being safe, reliable, secure, and functional. We believe in the immense power of bringing together diverse perspectives of each stakeholder to explore both the current and future landscapes of assured autonomous systems. So, we want to talk to you! We invite you to participate in a highly-collaborative workshop where you will have a chance to collaborate with your peers, explore complex and diverse challenges, and create a shared vision of assured autonomy today so that we may achieve it tomorrow.

This workshop is hosted by Johns Hopkins Institute for Assured Autonomy and AUVSI. To participate in this workshop, you must be minimally registered for an in-person XPO Hall pass at XPONENTIAL in Atlanta. Those participating must complete the required questionnaire by the stated deadline; this information will be used to assign breakout groups at the event, which will spur collaboration between different stakeholders in our industry.
