Abstract:

TEAMWORKS IS AN APPROACH TO THE MULTIPLICATION OF COMBAT POWER THROUGH THE EVOLUTIONARY DEVELOPMENT OF TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS. WE PROPOSE TO BUILD A SIMULATION GAMING LABORATORY, DISTRIBUTED OVER A NETWORK OF PERSONAL COMPUTERS, FOR THE STUDY OF TEAMWORK AMONG HUMANS AND ROBOTS. OUR LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVISE AN ADVANCED AUTIO/ VISUAL INTERFACE THROUGH WHICH A TANK COMMANDER CAN MANEUVER A SIMULATED TEAM OF ROBOTIC VEHICLES. THE UNDERLYING PREMISE IS THAT NATURAL INTELLIGENCE AND ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE CAN BE COMBINED TO FORM A POWERFUL, HYBRID INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM THAT CAN PERFORM MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN HUMANS OR ROBOTS ACTING INDEPENDENTLY. WE ALSO SEEK TO PROMOTE ADVANCES IN AI BY GIVING SCIENTISTS (1) GAME WORLDS IN WHICH TO EXPERIMENT AND (2) TOOLS WITH WHICH THEY THEMSELVES CAN CREATE GAME WORLDS.
