Sam received his undergraduate degree from CMU in Mechanical Engineering with an additional major in Robotics in The development of this idea is also motivated by the fact that we have progressed to a point at which we started to consider more complex problems that have facets similar to simpler and more-studied problems.
Kernel and moment-based learning leverage information about correlated data that allow the design of compact representations and efficient learning algorithms. Efficient Motion Planning for Intuitive Task Execution in Modular Manipulation Systems Markus Rickert, Mai Computationally efficient motion planning mus avoid exhaustive exploration of high-dimensional configuration spaces by leveraging the structure present in real-world planning Thesis based on robotics.
Participants had 2 minutes to choose characters and 4 minutes for improvisations. We propose a general approach for interactive perception and instantiations of this approach into perceptual systems to build kinematic, geometric and dynamic models of articulated objects.
The photographs either had no person, a person looking at the object, in this case the banana, or a person reaching for the banana.
Simulation of approach can affect liking and willingness to pay for a product, but the effect can be reversed if the person knows about this influence. Interactive Perception of Articulated Objects for Autonomous Manipulation Dov Katz, This thesis develops robotic skills for manipulating novel articulated objects.
In the "negative toward condition," participants moved negative words toward the center and positive words away. We explore kernel algorithms for planning by leveraging inherently continuous properties of Thesis based on robotics kernel Hilbert spaces.
Taken together, the concrete case studies and the abstract explanatory framework enable us to make suggestions on how to relax the previously stated assumptions and how to design more effective solutions to robot reinforcement learning problems.
The participants were then asked to fill out donations to Haiti for the Red Cross in sealed envelopes. They had 6 minutes to answer each question. Memory[ edit ] A study examining memory and embodied cognition illustrates that people remember more of the gist of a story when they physically act it out.
Capacities related to the tempo of activities also appeared to impact the perception of lexical material: In Study 3, images of arid land influenced time preference regarding when to begin preparation to make a monetary investment.
Robots have the ability to learn from their experience. A tone sounded to inform participants which target orientation to find. Recent work has shown that learned end-to-end policies can unify obstacle detection and planning systems for vision-based systems.
It is a mixture of mechanical, electronics, and computer science engineering. Participants were given feedback about their accuracy at the end of each of the 4 experimental blocks.
There are two main components of Natural Language Processing: The researchers suggest that this condition involves embodied cognition and will produce better memory for the monologue.
Participants had to fill in the blanks as accurately as possible.Abstract: For this thesis, we propose to study how to automatically combine multiple neighborhood-based heuristics.
For most computationally challenging problems, there exists multiple heuristics, and it is generally the case that any such heuristic exploits only a limited number of aspects among all the possible problem characteristics that we can think of.

M. Wulfmeier, “Efficient Supervision for Robot Learning via Imitation, Simulation, and Adaptation,” PhD Thesis, Oxford, United Kingdom, In this thesis we present a new contact predictor that combines evolutionary, sequence-based and physicochemical information. The contact predictor uses a new and refined feature set with drastically reduced dimensionality.
This thesis focuses on moment and kernel-based methods for applications in Robotics and Natural Language Processing. Kernel and moment-based learning leverage information about correlated data that allow the design of compact representations and efficient learning algorithms. Abstract This thesis focuses on moment and kernel-based methods for applications in Robotics and Natural Language Processing.
