The Adaptive Stress Testing Formulation

8 Apr 2020  ·  Mark Koren, Anthony Corso, Mykel J. Kochenderfer ·

Validation is a key challenge in the search for safe autonomy. Simulations are often either too simple to provide robust validation, or too complex to tractably compute. Therefore, approximate validation methods are needed to tractably find failures without unsafe simplifications. This paper presents the theory behind one such black-box approach: adaptive stress testing (AST). We also provide three examples of validation problems formulated to work with AST.
