Human Machine Interactive Controls Workshop

The full title of the workshop is: “Human-Machine Interaction Systems: moving the needle beyond slow learned behaviors in static environments to fast agile movements in uncertain complex environments”. This workshop, made possible by a grant from the United States Department of Defense, aims to address the following three questions regarding the sensorimotor control system (SCS):

  • What is an appropriate model of the SCS to derive performance limitations? What components should be explicitly modeled and should they be mechanistic or phenomenological characterizations? What reduced models are most powerful for capturing such fundamental limits?
  • What experimental data (behavior and neural) should be collected to help validate the SCS model and test model predictions? We will discuss what experimental data is required to validate and test new theories that will emerge from studying models and SCS tracking performance.
  • What architectures address the challenges of morphological control? How does such a theory affect prosthetic designs? What are the trade-offs between computation and the complexity of the underlying models? How is the learning-control architecture that will address these challenges?
