From Automation to Autonomy: Data-driven Machine Learning for Interactive Robotics, 18 February 2022
Professor Sethu Vijayakumar was invited to present a talk at the CompSoc Student Society on the 18 February 2022.
From Automation to Autonomy: Data-driven Machine Learning for Interactive Robotics
This talk will briefly introduce powerful machine learning technologies ranging from robust multi-modal sensing, shared representations, scalable real-time learning and adaptation 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 automation that we are comfortable with?
