Persistent Environmental Monitoring: Robots That Seemingly Do Nothing Most of the Time
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-08)
By now, we have a fairly good understanding of how to design coordinated control strategies for making teams of mobile robots achieve geometric objectives in a distributed manner, such as assembling shapes or covering ...
Efficient Lifelong Machine Learning
Lifelong learning is a key characteristic of human intelligence, largely responsible for the variety and complexity of our behavior. This process allows us to rapidly learn new skills by building upon and continually ...
The Robotic Scientist: Automating Discovery, from Cognitive Robotics to Computational Biology
Can robots discover scientific laws automatically? Despite the prevalence of computing power, the process of finding natural laws and their corresponding equations has resisted automation. This talk will outline a series ...
Mobile Data Collection in an Aquatic Environment: Cyber Maritime Cycles for Distributed Autonomy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-03-06)
There is a perceivable trend for robots to serve as networked mobile sensing platforms that are able to collect data in aquatic environments in unprecedented ways. We argue that the effective transformation between Eulerian ...
Safety of Autonomous Systems: Challenges in Coordination, Consistency, and Integration
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-04-10)
Recent issues with the Boeing 737-MAX point to challenges in software engineering and the algorithms that the software must implement. However, the 737-MAX is a microcosm of several other problems that continue to arise ...
