HAI Weekly Seminar with Monroe Kennedy - Considerations for Collaborative Robots

February 17, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Live Virtual Event

Over the past few decades, robots have become more capable of physically performing complex tasks. Robotics has evolved from simply the accuracy and repeatability of automation in manufacturing, to the ability to operate in unstructured environments with autonomy, to the capability to coordinate with other robots with swarm technology, and now to work alongside human teammates as collaborators and assistants. This latest horizon of effective collaboration requires all the tools developed in robotics, in particular, machine learning (AI) in order to model and anticipate a human teammate. In this talk, we will discuss what makes an effective robotic assistant, and considerations for modeling, anticipating, and collaborating with a human teammate.
