Siddharth Srivastava Awarded NSF Grant on AI and the Future of Work

Siddharth Srivastava, along with other faculty from Arizona State University, was awarded a grant as a part of the NSF’s Convergence Accelerator program. The project focuses on safe, adaptive AI systems/robots that enable workers to learn how to use them on the fly. The central question behind their research is: How can we train people to use adaptive AI systems, whose behavior and functionality is expected to change from day to day? Their approach uses self-explaining AI to enable on-the-fly training. You can read more about the project here.
