Professor Sethu Vijayakumar elected fellow of the ELLIS network
'ELLIS Robot Learning: Closing the Reality Gap!'
The European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) involves the very best European academics working closely together with researchers from industry.
The mission of ELLIS is to benefit Europe in two ways:
- ELLIS wants the best basic research to be performed in Europe, to enable Europe to shape how machine learning and modern AI change the world.
- ELLIS wants to have economic impact and create jobs in Europe, and believe this is achieved by outstanding and free basic research, independent of industry interests.
Newly elected fellow Professor Vijayakumar will be involved with the program 'Ellis Robot Learning: Closing the Reality Gap!' that focuses on questions relating to reducing the reality gap in robotics, and answers questions like:
How should the robot move?
How to act? How to interact?
How can sensorimotor behaviour be improved by machine learning approaches?
