Trustworthy Autonomous Systems: Governance and Regulation Node

1 November 2020 - 31 October 2024 - Subramanian (Ram) Ramamoorthy (PI), CoIs Alan Bundy, et al. RA: Mattias Appelgren, Yuhui Lin, Craig Innes et al.

By autonomous systems we mean AI systems that take decisions and act on them. This includes self-driving cars, drones, robot surgeons, etc. TAS is part of a huge, multi-site project to research how trust in such systems can be assured. The hub of TAS is based at Southampton and there are 5 nodes. Ram is PI of the Governance and Regulation Node, which is based in Edinburgh but includes staff from KCL, Nottingham, Sussex, Heriot Watt and Glasgow, plus numerous project partners from industry, etc. Within Edinburgh, the schools of Informatics, Law, Social Policy and Political Science and The Edinburgh Futures Institute. Our node's aim is defined as to "explore how to devise a framework for the regulation of autonomous systems – to help them respond to complexities of the world they function in."
