Robust Skill Generalization Using Probabilistic Inference

Everyday skills, such as making your bed or even pressing a doorbell, might seem trivial to us, but are actually quite complicated for today’s robots. Think about your performance the first time you tried a sport.  Did you seek help from a peer or coach? Did you perform better after that? Most probably you answered yes. It … Continue reading Robust Skill Generalization Using Probabilistic Inference

Karen Liu (IC) awarded the Google Research Award for 2017.

Karen Liu of School of Interactive Computing was awarded the Google Faculty Research Award for 2017. Her project is entitled “Closing the “Reality Gap”: A Machine Learning Approach to Contact Modeling” and aims to accurately compute contact states (sticking, sliding, or breaking) and contact forces such that the simulated results match the real world phenomena. … Continue reading Karen Liu (IC) awarded the Google Research Award for 2017.
