Tentacular AI (TAI)

TAI creates a community of knowledge-based agents, tied to the Internet of Things, which can reach out to each other when a problem exceeds their individual capabilities.

Key Findings
  • Developed a formal framework/definition for TAI and a general architecture for the agents.
  • Used the TAI's formalism to model an AI system that faces conflicting obligations arising from legal or ethical concerns
