Professor Sethu Vijayakumar to present AIRS SPOTLIGHT series seminar.

Wednesday 17th June from 8.30am-10.30am

From Automation to Autonomy: Advances in Machine Learning driving Next-gen Robotics

Professor Sethu Vijayakumar will present his talk on Wednesday 17 June from 8.30am-10.30am.  This talk will briefly introduce powerful machine learning technologies ranging from robust multi-modal sensing, shared representations, scalable real-time learning and adaption and compliant actuation that are enabling us to reap the benefits of increased autonomy while still feeling securely in control. 

This also raises some fundamental questions; while the robots are ready to share control, what is the optimal trade-off between autonomy and control that we are comfortable with?
