      Krovi, Venkat N. (2014-10-08)
      Surgical procedural performance involves interplay of a highly dynamic system of intercoupled perceptual, sensory, and cognitive components—at the current stage, however, our focus is on sensorimotor procedural performance. ...
    • Reinforcement Learning: Leveraging Deep Learning for Control 

      Buhr, Craig (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-11-04)
      Reinforcement learning is getting a lot of attention lately. People are excited about its potential to solve complex problems in areas such as robotics and automated driving, where traditional control methods can be ...
    • Risky Robotics: Developing a Practical Solution for Stochastic Optimal Control 

      Rogers, Jonathan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-15)
      Risk is a ubiquitous aspect of control and path planning for robots operating in unstructured real‐world environments. Nevertheless, humans still far surpass robots in their ability to evaluate complex tradeoffs under ...
    • Robophysics: Physics Meets Robotics 

      Goldman, Daniel I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-10-30)
      Robots will soon move from the factory floor and into our lives (e.g., autonomous cars, package delivery drones, and search-and-rescue devices). However, compared to living systems, robot capabilities in complex environments ...
    • Robot Learning: Quo Vadis? 

      Peters, Jan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-11-18)
      Autonomous robots that can assist humans in situations of daily life have been a long standing vision of robotics, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences. A first step towards this goal is to create robots that ...
