2006 Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS'06) Workshop


In the sixth workshop in a series targeted at defining measures and methodologies of evaluating performance of intelligent systems, we will focus on applications of performance measures to practical problems in commercial, industrial, homeland security, and military applications. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
  • Defining and measuring aspects of a system:
    • The level of autonomy
    • Human-robot interaction
    • Collaboration
  • Evaluating components within intelligent systems
    • Sensing and perception
    • Knowledge representation, world models, ontologies
    • Planning and control
    • Learning and adapting
    • Reasoning
  • Infrastructural support for performance evaluation
    • Testbeds and competitions for intercomparisons
    • Instrumentation and other measurement tools
    • Simulation and modeling support
  • Technology readiness measures for intelligent systems
  • Applied performance measures, e.g.,
    • Intelligent transportation systems
    • Emergency response robots (search and rescue, bomb disposal)
    • Homeland security systems
    • De-mining robots
    • Defense robotics
    • Command and control
    • Hazardous environments (e.g., nuclear remediation)
    • Industrial and manufacturing systems
    • Space robotics
    • Assistive devices
