Physics and Learning for Visually-Guided Robotics.

Short abstract

The purpose of this PhD is to enhance robots autonomy in unknown environments by learning visually-guided behaviors from sensory data. We plan to automate action plans by developing methods combining modern computer vision techniques with geometric reasoning which will lead to fast search methods, able to adapt on-the-fly to previously unseen environments.
