13 janvier – Séminaire DIC-ISC-CRIA : Building Robotic intelligence that learns and accounts for human users

Par : Greg Dudek

Résumé :
In this talk I will present work we have done on developing intelligent systems that learn to operate in complex environments in response to human instruction and perceptual feedback.  In particular, I will discuss some of the ways we have exploited machine learning such as reinforcement learning to refine the performance of the both to learn high-performance navigation strategies, gaits, and a notion of curiosity-driven exploration.  I will discuss how we allow the vehicle to track human and other targets in the ocean using visual target recognition, how we have addressed walking and swimming, and how the vehicle can model human level of trust (satisfaction) in attempt to personalize it’s behavior.  If time permits, I will also discuss an approach to efficient learning of human behavioural preferences and proxemics to develop robotics that are suited to operating for and with people.
