By August 28, 2023No Comments

Autonomy: According to the first edition of the EU-U.S. terminology and taxonomy for artificial intelligence, the word “Autonomy” means systems that maintain a set of intelligence-based capabilities to respond to situations that were not pre-programmed or anticipated (i.e., decision-based responses) prior to system deployment. Autonomous systems have a degree of self-government and self-directed behavior (with the human’s proxy for decisions).
