April 28, 2020 Congratulations to Dr. Philip Brown for his NSF grant entitled "Socially Networked Autonomy: How Should Machines Interact With Society?"
Abstract: This project studies decision design methodologies for autonomous agents that are networked with and interacting among human beings in societal systems. The running application example is that of an urban highway network in which a portion of the vehicles are autonomously operated. The core question is this: how should a system planner design the routing policies of the autonomous vehicles to have the greatest positive impact on overall network traffic congestion, even if human drivers react in a self-interested way to the behavior of the autonomous vehicles? Intuitively, it would appear beneficial to design the autonomous vehicles to be “altruistic;” that is, to select highway routes that cause the least congestion to other drivers. However, recent work shows that this simple and intuitive routing design policy may backfire, leading to a cascade of behaviors which inadvertently worsens congestion. This project will investigate how a designer can circumvent these pathologies through the design of smart routing policies. In essence, one of the key questions this project will address is “how selfish should autonomous vehicles be?” This project includes public outreach to help members of the public discern between “good” and “bad” modes of influence in socially networked autonomous systems. In addition, it will provide a theoretical framework for engineering practitioners to certify that the interactive aspects of smart systems have been designed to provide broad societal benefits in a principled way.

For Students

April 28, 2020 COVID  App  Team
Multiple faculty (Dr. Yanyan Zhaung, Dr. Terry Boult and Dr. Rory Lewis + Dr. Carlos Araujo in ECE) Are working on a multi-facted app to help fight COVID.  There are volunteer opportunities, a few paid positions now,  more paid positions if we get funding.   This is app + back end server positions plus some content and UI needs as well. You can learn more and apply at https://forms.gle/8mKnzX1mkRMCAby79


April 28, 2020  Volunteer Opportunity
Alison Murray from First Presbyterian is  leading the effort to have an overall  website that can direct folks in El  Paso county to different initiatives related to the pandemic.  She needs some simple programming  ability to help with the site.   Expect this to be unpaid.   Reply to Dr. Boult and he can connect you. 


April 28, 2020  Internship Opportunity
Michael Wingfield, a UCCS BI grad , has a company is Byte Break Studios LLC and that build custom software for small businesses and is looking for interns.  The project that they would work on is for a blinds installation company that digitizes and automates daily processes for the employees of that company.  It is made up of three parts: a Golang server, Flutter mobile app, and ElectronJS desktop app.  Their part would be working on either the Flutter mobile app or the ElectronJS desktop.  The pay would be $20/hour and they would get to work remote and mostly pick their own hours.
