We make robots socially more compatible
Intelligent systems are radically altering the way information and services are offered to people. Our research is mainly concerned with analyzing and shaping this change. We are interested in machines that share physical, social and emotional spaces with humans, in particular by considering intelligent robotic systems in human environments. Our work can be located in the intersection of robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning, human-robot interaction, and cognitive science. We are interested in acquiring rich models of human attributes and behaviors -- either learned from data or derived from empirical research -- and incorporating them at all levels from perception, cognition to action.
To this end, our research is divided into three areas.
