Risk-aware autonomy – moving artificial intelligence forward

In this video, CSE PhD student Dhanvin Mehta talks about his work in getting robots to navigate safely amongst pedestrians.| Short Read

Dhanvin Mehta, CSE PhD student, is working on the Risk Aware Multi-Policy Decision Making algorithm to help guide robots in uncertain environments with constantly changing variables, such as for autonomous vehicles driving among pedestrians who can suddenly change direction or speed without signalling. The algorithm takes into account potentially dangerous outcomes in the near future and adjusts to each unique situation, making the best decision possible.
