    Trustworthiness of Autonomous Systems.S. Kate Devitt - 2018 - In Hussein A. Abbass, Jason Scholz & Darryn Reid (eds.), Foundations of Trusted Autonomous Systems. Springer. pp. 161-184.
    Effective robots and autonomous systems must be trustworthy. This chapter examines models of trustworthiness from a philosophical and empirical perspective to inform the design and adoption of autonomous systems. Trustworthiness is a property of trusted agents or organisations that engenders trust in other agent or organisations. Trust is a complex phenomena defined differently depending on the discipline. This chapter aims to bring different approaches under a single framework for investigation with three sorts of questions: Who or what is trustworthy?–metaphysics. How (...)

    Cognitive Factors That Affect the Adoption of Autonomous Agriculture.S. Kate Devitt - 2018 - Farm Policy Journal 15 (2):49-60.
    Robotic and Autonomous Agricultural Technologies (RAAT) are increasingly available yet may fail to be adopted. This paper focusses specifically on cognitive factors that affect adoption including: inability to generate trust, loss of farming knowledge and reduced social cognition. It is recommended that agriculture develops its own framework for the performance and safety of RAAT drawing on human factors research in aerospace engineering including human inputs (individual variance in knowledge, skills, abilities, preferences, needs and traits), trust, situational awareness and cognitive load.

    Good Data.Angela Daly, Monique Mann & S. Kate Devitt - 2019 - Amsterdam, Netherlands: Institute of Network Cultures.
    Moving away from the strong body of critique of pervasive ‘bad data’ practices by both governments and private actors in the globalized digital economy, this book aims to paint an alternative, more optimistic but still pragmatic picture of the datafied future. The authors examine and propose ‘good data’ practices, values and principles from an interdisciplinary, international perspective. From ideas of data sovereignty and justice, to manifestos for change and calls for activism, this collection opens a multifaceted conversation on the kinds (...)
