Abstract

The attendees of the Knowledge Representation and Ontologies for Autonomous Systems Symposium applied their collective intelligence in an attempt to solve one of the universe?s great challenges: how do you autonomously collect garbage from an airport facility? The attendees divided into three pre-selected, cross-disciplinary groups that were headed by Stephen Balakirsky (NIST), Elena Messina (NIST), and Scott Smith (Boeing). The teams were given limited direction and 3 h to develop a solution to the problem. Results from the groups were briefed the following morning at a plenary session.
