    Summary form only given. Scaled technologies continue to exhibit variability, driven by both random process effects and systematic structural effects. Process and design rule actions can be taken to reduce, or even eliminate, sources of systematic variability. Random variability is more difficult to combat, but architectural decisions can be made to limit the device sensitivity to specific random ... View full abstract»

    The Interactive Reinforcement Learning algorithm enables a human user to train a robot by providing rewards in response to past actions and anticipatory guidance to guide the selection of future actions. Past work with software agents has shown that incorporating user guidance into the policy learning process through Interactive Reinforcement Learning significantly improves the policy learning tim...

  • Saliency-based boundary object detection in naturally complex scenes

    A stochastic scheme is presented for cooperative detection of landmark objects distributed in roadway boundaries. By indexing chromatic diversity within a locally Gaussian color space, saliency patterns are extracted with respect to the as-is primary system. Through saccadic scan of the saliency patterns, boundary objects are successively articulated into a system of fractal attractors consistent ... View full abstract»

    Human-robot interaction (HRI) tasks in everyday environments will require people to direct or lead a robot as they walk in close proximity to it. Tasks that exemplify this interaction include a robotic porter, carrying heavy suitcases, or a robot carrying groceries. As many users may not be robotics experts, we argue that such interaction schemes must be accessible, easy to use and understand. In ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a behavior generating method for reflecting emotional probabilities. The proposed method consists of two processes: an emotion-behavior probability generating process and a unit behavior combination generating process. 1) In the emotion-behavior probability generating process, the emotional probabilities of behaviors are determined on the basis of user preferences in terms of t...

    In theory, autonomous robotic swarms can be used for critical Army tasks, including accompanying vehicle convoys to provide security and enhance situational awareness. However, the Soldier providing swarm supervisory control must be able to correct swarm actions, especially in disrupted or degraded conditions. Dynamic map displays are visual interfaces that can be useful for swarm supervisory cont... View full abstract»

    This article presents an investigation into the theoretical and computational aspects of trust as applied to robots. It begins with an in-depth review of the trust literature in search of a definition for trust suitable for implementation on a robot. Next we apply the definition to our interdependence framework for social action selection and develop an algorithm for determining if an interaction ... View full abstract»
