CAIRO Lab Research Proposal Selected for Award as part of ARL's "STRONG" Program

This award will study Opportunistic Planning for Emergent Capability in Dynamic Human-Robot Teams.

Our proposal was selected for award within the Army Research Lab’s Strengthening Teamwork for Robust Operations in Novel Groups (STRONG) Cycle 2 program.

The proposed work targets two complementary objectives: (1) Developing online planning algorithms for mixed human-robot teams that can leverage predictive models of emergent capabilities, namely, models that are able to estimate capability augmentation that is possible only when groups of agents work together; and (2) Adapt established work in explainable planning techniques to efficiently convey these plans to human teammates, enabling more capable and agile human-robot teaming in the field.
