Challenge clinic

Academic discussions on Human AI Teaming with the aim to build a roadmap for future research collaboration related to the theme.

Research needs for Human-AI Teaming were proposed by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in a report from 2022. It describes challenges for human interactions with AI in distributed teams, for activities with high-consequence outcomes.

Human-AI Team Testbeds are included in the report as one of the challenges and opportunities. This is a good match with WARA-PS, where teams of AI-systems and humans interact at sea and in the air in joint missions, with high-consequence outputs – and where data from the activities in the test bed can be collected. WARA robotics and WARA media and language also includes application contexts with Human-AI Teaming challenges.

In the workshop, both industry, academia, and other stakeholders (e.g. regulators) are invited to bring their own research needs and directions. The focus is on how WASP and WARA can address Human-AI Teaming challenges, together with industry, academia, and other stakeholders in society. This includes applied challenges, as well as basic research needs and topics for a research agenda and roadmap on Human-AI Teaming.
