Research project: Trustworthy Autonomous Systems

Currently Active: 
Yes

The TAS hub establishes a collaborative platform for the UK to deliver world-leading best practices for the design, regulation and operation of ‘socially beneficial’ autonomous systems which are both trustworthy in principle, and trusted in practice by individuals, society and government.

TAS-UK will drive multidisciplinary work structured around three initial grand challenges informed by previous research on robotics and AI, which represent contexts of significant public concern and risk to potential economic and societal growth. Ongoing work within the grand challenge programme will identify new emerging areas.

These initial three challenges are:

• To ensure TAS improve rather than harm our physical and mental wellbeing
• To ensure TAS safeguard rather than undermine our personal freedoms
• To ensure TAS benefit rather than damage our society and the economy
