TALK: John Schulman
I will talk about the research I have done with my collaborators on teaching robots to perform manipulation tasks based on human demonstrations. Of particular interest are tasks involving deformable objects, where it is hard to perceive the full state of the system and model its dynamics. I will also talk about some techniques we have developed to solve the associated perception and motion planning problems.
John Schulman is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley in Pieter Abbeels group. He is interested in developing learning-based approaches to enable robots to perform challenging manipulation tasks.
