Intelligent Robots Group
We are a recently established and growing group dedicated to the development and improvement of the next generation of intelligent machines.
A focus of our work is on machines that can not only perform complex tasks that are beyond the abilities of humans to program, but that can also convey information about the world, explain their actions and justify their decisions in terms that humans can understand.
Advances in sensing and perception, machine learning, autonomous task planning, software engineering, graphics and user interface design will allow the robots and autonomous systems of the future to work alone and alongside humans to solve many of the major challenges facing humanity.
