The increasing use of robots has thrown up questions about how they can be integrated successfully into human–robot teams. A research paper by Dale Richards, from the Faculty of Engineering and Computing at Coventry University, discusses how such teams can share goals through delegation between humans and robots, or “agent” members. His research examines such questions as could the agents be allowed to make their own decisions? How would humans react to being told what to do by a robot?
The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
