White-Box Self-Programming Mechanisms

Project description

Studying self-programmable AI devices

Manufacturing devices, smart objects, intelligent robots and other applications depend on mechanisms offering forms of programmability and relying on advanced sensing and actuation components. However, the effect of these mechanisms is limited because their logic relies on hard-wired rules encoded in hand-crafted programmes. The EU-funded WhiteMech project will develop the tools for a new generation of white-box self-programming mechanisms capable of automatically tailoring their behaviour to reach desired goals, support themselves with safe boundaries in a changing environment, and follow evolving regulations and conventions over time. WhiteMech bases its scientific results on combining knowledge and insight from autonomous sequential decision making in Artificial Intelligence, programme verification and synthesis in formal methods, and data-aware processes in databases.
