Michael W. Floyd I have been at Knexus Research Corporation since 2013. I primarily collaborate with David Aha and others at the United States Naval Research Laboratory.

My recent research has focused primarily on the intelligence aspects of human-robot teams. More specifically, I have examined methods by which robots can measure their teammates' trust and adapt their behavior, and also how robots can observe their teammates' actions to infer team goals.

Research Interests:
  • Case-based reasoning
  • Learning by observation/learning by demonstration/imitation learning
  • Goal reasoning
  • Human-robot teams
  • Autonomous robots
  • Adaptive agents
  • Human-robot trust
