Theatre 2
Human Factors and Performance in a Digital Twin Age

Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are changing citizens’ life and business, leading also a transformation in defense. The rapid convergence of drone and deep learning technologies and the development and deployment of  robotic systems promise military benefits but also pose security threats and challenges to human control. Simulation can be applied to digital twin models of the AI system and the environment to train and test under rare and extreme conditions, unanticipated situations and in complex dynamic operational contexts including interaction with civilian entities.
