Trustworthiness of Autonomous Systems

  title={Trustworthiness of Autonomous Systems},
  author={S. Kate Devitt},
  booktitle={CDC 2018},
Effective robots and autonomous systems must be trustworthy. This chapter examines models of trustworthiness from a philosophical and empirical perspective to inform the design and adoption of autonomous systems. Trustworthiness is a property of trusted agents or organisations that engenders trust in other agent or organisations. Trust is a complex phenomena defined differently depending on the discipline. This chapter aims to bring different approaches under a single framework for… 

A Survey on Trust Metrics for Autonomous Robotic Systems

This paper attempts to put prior work on trust metrics related to security for autonomous robotic systems into perspective, and to show how it might be extended to develop useful system-level trust metrics for evaluating complex robotic systems.

Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence: A Review

A holistic view of the recent advancements in trustworthy AI is presented to help the interested researchers grasp the crucial facets of the topic efficiently and offer possible future research directions.

Tell Me Something That Will Help Me Trust You: A Survey of Trust Calibration in Human-Agent Interaction

This paper surveys literature in the area of trust between a single human supervisor and a single agent subordinate to determine the nature and extent of this additional information and to characterize it into a taxonomy that can be leveraged by future researchers and intelligent agent practitioners.

Developing a Trusted Human-AI Network for Humanitarian Benefit

This paper considers the integration of a communications protocol, distributed ledger technology, and information fusion with artificial intelligence (AI), to improve conflict communications called 'Protected Assurance Understanding Situation and Entities' (PAUSE).

Cognitive factors that affect the adoption of autonomous agriculture

This paper focusses specifically on cognitive factors that affect adoption including: inability to generate trust, loss of farming knowledge and reduced social cognition.

Advancing the Design and Implementation of Artificial Intelligence in Education through Continuous Improvement

The authors argue that FATE in AIEd-related issues must be addressed as the system evolves with users and the local context, and proposes that the pursuit of FATE of AIEd lays broadly in promoting systematic inquiry and collaboration between educators, developers, and researchers.

Autonomous Systems and Reliability Assessment: A Systematic Review

This article examines the reliability of autonomous systems using the PRISMA approach because of the pressure on the architectural development of recent computing devices as the traditional transistors seem to be fast outgrown.

Reliability Assessment of Autonomous Systems: A Systematic Review

The efficiency of autonomous systems using the PRISMA approach is discussed, which combines machine learning, parallelism, multi-computing and scaling to improve the reliability of the entire system.

Space Invaders: Pedestrian Proxemic Utility Functions and Trust Zones for Autonomous Vehicle Interactions

A new Bayesian method to infer continuous pedestrian proxemic utility functions is proposed, and related to a new definition of ‘physical trust requirement’ (PTR) which shows that trust by the pedestrian is required in a discrete ‘trust zone’ which emerges naturally from simple physics.

AI Augmentation for Trustworthy AI: Augmented Robot Teleoperation

This paper discusses how AI Augmentation can provide a path for building Trustworthy AI, and exemplifies this approach using Robot Teleoperation, and lays out design guidelines and motivations for the development of AIAugmentation for robot Teleoperation.



Trust in Automation: Designing for Appropriate Reliance

This review considers trust from the organizational, sociological, interpersonal, psychological, and neurological perspectives, and considers how the context, automation characteristics, and cognitive processes affect the appropriateness of trust.

Trust and belief: a preemptive reasons account

The paper argues that acceptance of a preemptive account of reasons for trust supports the adoption of a doxastic account of trust, for acceptance of such an account both neutralizes central objections toDoxastic accounts of trust and provides independent reasons supporting a doXastic account.

A Meta-Analysis of Factors Influencing the Development of Trust in Automation

This work expands on the previous meta-analytic foundation in the field of human–robot interaction to include all of automation interaction to provide a quantitative representation of factors influencing the development of trust in automation and identify additional areas of needed empirical research.

Competence- and Integrity-Based Trust in Interorganizational Relationships: Which Matters More?

Trust is an important factor for managing transaction costs within interorganizational relationships (IORs). Research on trust indicates that separate dimensions of trust arise from a partner’s

A Defense of the Rights of Artificial Intelligences

There are possible artificially intelligent beings who do not differ in any morally relevant respect from human beings. Such possible beings would deserve moral consideration similar to that of human

Can You Trust Your Robot?

It is proposed that trust is a critical element in the interactive relations between humans and the automated and robotic technology they create. This article presents (a) why trust is an important

Telling as Inviting to Trust

How can I give you a reason to believe what I tell you? I can influence the evidence available to you. Or I can simply invite your trust. These two ways of giving reasons work very differently. When

Generalized Trust and Intelligence in the United States

The view that generalized trust is a valuable social resource, not only for the individual but for the wider society as well is bolstered.
