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.
This Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) Node in Resilience project brings together the disciplines of computer science, engineering, law, mathematics, philosophy and psychology from five UK universities to develop a comprehensive toolbox of principles, methods and systematic approaches for the engineering of resilient autonomous systems and systems of systems.

This project is part of the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS) programme funded through the UKRI Strategic Priorities Fund and delivered by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The TAS programme brings together the research communities and key stakeholders to drive forward cross-disciplinary fundamental research to ensure that autonomous systems are safe, reliable, resilient, ethical and trusted.
