    • The Manipulation Action Grammar: A Key to Intelligent Robots 

      Aloimonos, Yiannis (2016-04-06)
      Humanoid robots will need to learn the actions that humans perform. They will need to recognize these actions when they see them and they will need to perform these actions themselves. In this presentation, it is proposed ...

      Tedrake, Russ (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-10-19)
      Humanoid robots walking across intermittent terrain, robotic arms grasping multifaceted objects, or UAVs darting left or right around a tree — many of the dynamics and control problems we face today have an inherently ...
    • Mobile Data Collection in an Aquatic Environment: Cyber Maritime Cycles for Distributed Autonomy 

      Zhang, Fumin (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 ...
    • Models for Mining Public Health Information from Social Media 

      Dredze, Mark (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-11-13)
      Twitter and other social media sites contain a wealth of information about populations and has been used to track sentiment towards products, measure political attitudes, and study social linguistics. In this talk, we ...
    • Multi-agent Collaboration in Shared Workspace 

      Pellegrinelli, Stefania (2016-03-16)
      In the last decades, the use of robots has become a reality in different industrial sectors, such as the automotive and logistic sectors, in terms of automated or semi-automated cells. On the basis of this trend, it is ...
    • Multirobot Coordination: From High-level Specification to Correct Execution 

      Ayanian, Nora (2015-12-02)
      Using a group of robots in place of a single complex robot to accomplish a task has many benefits, including simplified system repair, less down time, and lower cost. Combining heterogeneous groups of these multi-robot ...
    • Multiscale Robotics and Control: From Microns and Millimeters to Human Size 

      Popa, Dan O. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-02-19)
      Established more than half a century ago, the fields of control and robotics are continuously evolving by expanding their scale-independent toolboxes into new domains of science and engineering. In this talk, we use examples ...
    • Multi‐Robot Systems for Monitoring and Controlling Large Scale Environments 

      Schwager, Mac (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-22)
      Groups of aerial, ground, and sea robots working collaboratively have the potential to transform the way we sense and interact with our environment at large scales. They can serve as eyes‐in‐the‐sky for environmental ...
