Session title: Autonomous Systems at Sea, Building Trust with Humans 

Autonomous systems are increasingly part of the human experience, acting as our agents, shaping the information we see, taking care of us, and increasingly randomly encountering us in places that have traditionally been limited to humans. In the ocean we are both ahead of much of the rest of the autonomy community in building autonomous mobile systems, and behind the community in weaving systems into human activities. This session is devoted to discussing autonomy at sea, with a particular focus on the human experience associated with the growing use of autonomous systems.

1700-1730: Panel: Autonomous systems at sea: Building Trust with Humans.                                                                                                 

How do human operators in oil & gas get robots to do what they want them to do?  

How does ‘pervasive autonomy’ change the seagoing experience for operators on ships and in land?  

How will autonomous surface platforms interact with human occupied platforms?

How does O&G compare to the defense industry?
