AIC Seminar Series

Dimensions of Adjustable Autonomy and Mixed-Initiative Interaction

Jeffrey Bradshaw

Date:  Tuesday, June 8th 2004 at 4:00pm

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)


Several research groups have grappled with the problem of characterizing and developing practical approaches for implementing adjustable autonomy and mixed-initiative interaction in deployed systems. However, each group takes a little different approach and uses variations of the same terminology in a somewhat different fashion. In this chapter, we will describe some common dimensions in an effort to better understand these important but ill-characterized topics. We are developing a formalism and implementation of these concepts as part of the KAoS framework in the context of our research on policy-governed autonomous systems.

   Bio for Jeffrey Bradshaw

Jeffrey M. Bradshawis a senior research scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition in Pensacola, Florida. His work on the KAoS policy and domain services framework is now being extended for use in several research programs including DARPA Ultra*Log, DAML and Augmented Cognition. He also participates in the DARPA EPCA/CALO program. He led the DARPA and NASA funded ITAC study team "Software Agents for the Warfighter." Under grants from NASA, ONR, and the Army Research Labs, he is investigating principles of human-robotic teamwork, driven by reusable policies derived from work practice studies. Jeff Bradshaw was the general chair of Autonomous Agents 99 and PAAM 2000, is co-general chair of the Intelligent Agent Technology 2001 conference (IAT 01) and will serve as co-program chair for IAT 04. He was the local organizer for the second International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 03) and the Knowledge Capture conference (K-CAP 03). He will co-chair the first IEEE Symposium on Multi-Agent Security and Survivability (MASS 04) and the WWW 2004 workshop on Policy. Jeff has been a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the European Institute for Cognitive Sciences and Engineering (EURISCO) in Toulouse, France, is a member and former chair of the RIACS Science Council for NASA Ames Research Center. Jeff serves on the Autonomous Agents Steering committee and on the editorial board of the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, the Web Semantics Journal, and the Web Intelligence Journal. He is a former chair of ACM SIGART. Among other publications, he edited the books Knowledge Acquisition as a Modeling Activity (with Ken Ford, Wiley, 1993), Software Agents (AAAI Press/The MIT Press, 1997) and the forthcoming Handbook of Agent Technology (AAAI Press/The MIT Press).
