ABSTRACT:

Reflecting on 16 years of naval service and subsequent roles in Project and Engineering Management, Andrew draws parallels between the fundamentals of military leadership contained in Getting Things Done, and those skills required to lead project and engineering teams. Sprinkled with British and Naval anecdotes, this presentation will provide value to seasoned managers and as well as those embarking on a career in project management. It will also be a shameless reminder of what value veterans can bring to your team!

     BONUS: Anita will be presenting some strategies for tracking and reporting on Project Quality Management.

PMI Thumb Chapter May 2020 Dinner Meeting

05-13-2020 5:30 pm -8:30 pm
$25.00

TOPIC: The Morals of Autonomous Driving

    BONUS: PMI Thumb Chapter Business Meeting

PDU: .75 - Technical - .75 Strategic

SPEAKER:  Kelvin Elvidge, ASQ CQE, CQA, and CSQE

     BONUS: Anita Kenworthy, PMP and Thumb Chapter President

ABSTRACT:

The Morals of Autonomous Driving is a hands-on interactive demonstration of what types of decisions autonomous vehicles will need to make on a daily basis. In the presentation we will go thru different scenarios and at the end we can see how we rank in our decisions compared to all others that have taken the same simulation. From self-driving cars on public roads to self-piloting reusable rockets landing on self-sailing ships, machine intelligence is supporting or entirely taking over ever more complex human activities at an ever-increasing pace. The greater autonomy given machine intelligence in these roles can result in situations where they have to make autonomous choices involving human life and limb. This calls for not just a clearer understanding of how humans make such choices, but also a clearer understanding of how humans perceive machine intelligence making such choices.

     BONUS: Anita will present the Thumb Chapter's business year in review from the beginning of 2019 to present.
