Cross-team initiatives

The Lab has identified three areas that cross the boundaries between research teams:

Managing uncertainty

Given the incompleteness and uncertainty that are invariably present when attempting to model a complex reality, this initiative brings together members of different teams to compare the various formalisms used and to examine how well suited they are for solving the types of problems encountered.

Distributed data fusion

This initiative is concerned with identifying the best ways of maintaining the consistency and integrity of data in distributed systems.

Interacting with humans

Human agents can be seen as a partners in the design or use of a machine, or as operators whose potential for error needs to be addressed.

Further bilateral issues have been identified.
