Funding for improving the socio-technical resilience and trustworthiness of autonomous systems
Prof. Julie Wilson is involved in a £3M interdisciplinary project, led at University of York by the Department of Computer Science, that will improve the ability of autonomous systems to reason about the impact of their decisions and actions on technical and social requirements and rules.
