I am pleased to announce that the special issue of the Philosophical Transaction of the Royal Society on Symbiotic Autonomous Systems, edited by Okyay Kaynak and Francesco Flammini has been published.
It makes for an interesting reading if you are working in the area of autonomous systems, as well as if you are simply curious about what they are and what their applications might be.
This is a topic that we have spearheaded at the IEEE-FDC Initiative on Symbiotic Autonomous Systems that has led to the current Digital Reality Initiative. One of the article, The winding path towards symbiotic autonomous system that I co-authored with Kathy Grise and Terence Martinez (respectively the project manager for DRI and for SAS) is recapping the motivations and the results of the FDC initiative.
You’ll find these other articles in the issue:
A model of symbiomemesis: machine education and communication as pillars for human-autonomy symbiosis
Digital twins as run-time predictive models for the resilience of cyber-physical systems: a conceptual framework
Stochastic model predictive control framework for resilient cyber-physical systems: review and perspectives
Adaptive neural network control for nonlinear cyber-physical systems subject to false data injection attacks with prescribed performance
Development of an industrial cyber-physical platform for small series production using digital twins
As you can see there is plenty of stuff to fill your vacation time. Enjoy!
