CISC at ESREL 2023

The European Conference on Safety and Reliability, 3 – 7 September 2023

CISC team will present their research progress and results during ESREL 2023 – the European Conference on Safety and Reliability.

Motivation:  The European Commission’s guidelines on ethics in artificial intelligence (AI), published in April 2019, recognised the importance of a ‘human-centric’ approach to AI that is respectful of European values. Dedicated training schemes to prepare for the integration of “human-centric” AI into European innovation and industry are now needed. AIs should be able to collaborate with (rather than replace) humans. Safety critical applications of AI technology are “human- in-the-loop” scenarios, where AI and humans work together, as manufacturing processes, IoT systems, and critical infrastructures. The concept of Collaborative Intelligence is essential for safety critical situations and it requires interdisciplinary approaches blending expertise across AI, Human Factors, Neuroergonomics and System Safety Engineering.

Objective:  The topics covered in this session should be at the intersections of the followings:

  • Modelling the dynamics of system behaviours for the production processes, IoT systems, and critical infrastructures (System Safety Engineering)
  • Designing and implementing processes capable of monitoring interactions between automated systems and the humans destined to use them (Human Factors/ Neuroergonomics)
  • Using data analytics and AI to create novel human-in-the-loop automation paradigms to support decision making and/or anticipate critical scenarios
  • Managing the Legal and Ethical implications in the use of physiology-recording wearable sensors and human performance data in AI algorithms.
