Presentation - Towards Human-Centered Embodied Intelligence

The goal of Human-Centered Embodied Intelligence is to develop robots that can work safely alongside humans, helping them to to perform difficult or dangerous tasks. We will discuss a variety of research projects spanning automated driving, object-based mapping and localization, and autonomous underwater vehicle navigation.  An overarching goal is create autonomous systems that can achieve life-long learning in complex dynamic environments, with the aim of amplifying, rather than replacing, human capabilities.
