“Enabling Future Autonomy” Workshop to be Held at Ames on August 5-7, 2015

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Intelligent Systems Technical Committee (ISTC) is sponsoring the second AIAA Intelligent Systems Workshop to be held at NASA Ames on August 5-7, 2015. The purpose of the workshop is to develop a roadmap for integrating Intelligent Systems (IS) technologies into aerospace systems. The theme of this year’s workshop is “Enabling Future Autonomy” with the objective to identify key technology gaps and research needs for enabling autonomy in future aerospace systems. The workshop seeks to attract IS experts from outside the aerospace domain, such as those with practical experience building self-driving cars, in order to stimulate interaction and cross-feed lessons learned. In addition, this workshop seeks constructive feedback from outside communities, such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), on its draft roadmap for intelligent systems.

The workshop will be chaired by Nhan Nguyen and will feature plenary speakers, including Dr. Guillaume Brat from the Intelligent Systems Division and Dr. Zhaoyin Jia from Google; four discussion panels with participation from Boeing, the MITRE Corporation, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), NASA, and others; as well as several breakout sessions on a variety of IS topics. Breakout session topics will include autonomy, adaptive systems, robotics, big data, Verification and Validation (V&V), Integrated Systems Health Management (ISHM), and Air Traffic Management (ATM)/Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) applications.

The workshop is now open for registration at:

A registration fee is not required.

BACKGROUND: The AIAA Intelligent Systems Technical Committee is responsible for promoting the use of IS technologies and methods in aerospace systems, the verification and validation of these systems, and the education of the AIAA membership in the use of IS technologies in aerospace and other technical disciplines.
