Exploring the Social Science of Human-Autonomy Interaction

What Sci-Fi Movies Can Tell Us about Future Autonomy

I gave a talk a few months ago to a department on campus.  It is based on work that Ewart de Visser PhD and I are doing on adaptive trust repair with autonomy.  That is a complex way of saying the possibility of giving machines an active role in managing human-machine trust.

The talk is based on a paper currently under review and is meant to be fun but also an attempt to seriously consider the shape of future autonomy based on fictional representations; sci-fi movies serve as data.  It is about 40 minutes long.
