We have been awarded a multi-million dollar multi-year contract, where our AI are being used as ‘crew’ for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, to support the advanced manufacture of spacecraft. We have also won a large grant from the Australian Space Agency, and are using that to train our AI to take on these different roles.
Support complex tasks, autonomous problem solving. Provide both cognitive and physical help. Embodied in an autonomous helper robot.
Understand what is happening in the environment. Look for anomalies and create alerts. AI Analytics. Embodied in a swarm of smaller robots with sensors
Ambient AI brain, with an overarching view of the whole environment. Understands people, processes, events and the habitat as a whole system. Embodied in a ‘brain’ represented by an abstract avatar
These include goal-oriented reinforcement learning, unsupervised ontology acquisition and advanced dynamic associative memory. We are working towards a fusion of these technologies to enable AI to efficiently and independently handle reasoning, complex problem solving and decision making.
We are working with a synergy of neuroscience, cognitive theories, behavioural science and multimodal learning to develop AI that understands humans. This spans language, emotion, culture, values and goal alignment in order to achieve deep and trusted relationships between humans and AI.
We do this to map resources, events and relationships that AI can use to optimise state space and traverse events more effectively over time. By measuring and optimising according to shared goals, AI will be able to improve its own effectiveness in order to enhance the well-being of humans and manage their environment.
