Title: Robots that interact with people, and learn from experience
Abstract: Most of today's robots are confined to factory floors and warehouses. Robots that interact with humans and learn from experience would unlock various new applications. I will present my research on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and Robot Learning implemented on a variety of robotic platforms including mobile robots, self-driving cars, robotic arms, and drones. I will present projects on the manipulation of everyday objects, human-robot object handovers, Augmented Reality applications to HRI, deep reinforcement learning for robots, and human-aware navigation.
