In this meeting of the AI Seminar Series, Dr. Tim Miller will talk to us about common ground in teams!
Title: Common ground in teams
Speaker: Dr. Tim Miller
When: Tuesday, 15th April 11 AM - 12 NOON
Where: Doug McDonnell-10.05
In this talk, I will discuss: what it means for teams of individuals to
share a common ground, why it is important when completing joint
activities, and how we can define a computational model of it.
The purpose of this work is to help design the next generation of
autonomous systems, which will be required to work closely with humans.
The talk is mostly philosophy, a bit of computer science, and a bit of
logic. No prior knowledge about these topics is assumed, but you will
learn something about each of them.
