The 1st meeting of EMP Seminar Series
英エジンバラ大学 Sethu Vijayakumar教授講演会のご案内
2016 1st EMP Seminar Seriesでは、英エジンバラ大学よりSethu Vijayakumar教授をお招きし、ご講演いただきます。貴重な機会となりますので、皆様奮ってご参加ください。
場所：筑波大学 第３エリア 3B213
演題：Statistical Machine Learning and Motor Control
概要：The next generation of robots are going to work much more closely with humans, other robots and interact significantly with the environment around it. As a result, the key paradigms are shifting from isolated decision making systems to one that involves sharing control — with significant autonomy devolved to the RAS systems; and end-users in the loop making only high level decisions.
The key questions is: while the robots are ready to share control, what is the optimal trade-off between autonomy and control that we are comfortable with?
This talk will look at technologies ranging from robust multi-modal sensing, shared representations, compliant actuation and real-time learning and adaptation that are enabling us to reap the benefits of increased autonomy while still feeling securely in control.
Domains where this debate is relevant NOW include self-driving cars, mining, shared manufacturing, exoskeletons for rehabilitation, active prosthetics, large scale scheduling (e.g. transport) systems as well as Oil and Gas exploration to list a few.
