Human-Centered Autonomous Robots


In the current wave of the “new artificial intelligence”, robotics is considered as one of the major players for a modern future of humans. But robotics has been surprisingly reluctant to allow for discontinuous jumps in progress, despite several attempts to push such progress with major funding for large size research and development teams. It appears, that robotics requires more structure due to physics and closed loop information processing than other topics in artificial intelligence, which can benefit more directly from huge data engineering and massive computing for training. This talk will outline several topics that our research group has characterized as important ingredients for autonomous robotics. These topics include ideas about common useful representations, learning from demonstration, reinforcement learning, inverse reinforcement learning, learning reactive control, learning how to switch behaviors, perception-action cycles, and, in general, an attempt to find a coherent framework for autonomous robots that will at some point share our human environments.
